  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¾ cups raisins
  • ¾ cups chopped walnuts
  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Move the oven rack to the center position. Preheat oven to 350°Line three baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon until combined. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss together oats, raisins and walnuts. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as necessary. Reduce the speed to medium-low and add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla. Mix until just combined.
  5. Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mix in three additions, scraping down the sides as necessary, and mixing just until a few streaks of flour remain.
  6. Transfer the dough to the now empty flour bowl. Add the oatmeal mixture and stir until evenly mixed throughout.
  7. Drop dough of two tablespoons each onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving 2-inches in between (cookies will spread!). Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, rotating halfway through baking. Let cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes. Serve warm or transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
