How to Make Fruity Oatmeal Cookies


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease baking sheet; set aside.

  2. In large bowl, combine honey, brown sugar, oil, peanut butter, eggs, raisin mixture, vanilla and salt; mix well. Add flour, baking soda and baking powder; mix well. Add oatmeal. (To chop fine, use food processor.) Mix well. Dough should be stiff, so add a little additional flour if needed.
