1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup chopped walnuts



Beat the eggs and vanilla, stir in the raisins, and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare a baking sheets with Silpat or parchment. In your mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.

In another bowl, sift together the flour, spices, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix the flour mixture into the creamed butter.

Once the flour is incorporated, stir in the raisin mixture until well combined. Then add in the oats and walnuts and mix until completely incorporated. Scoop onto cookie sheet and bake at 350f for 8-10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool for 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
