- 3/4 cups butter, room temperature
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon (I used Saigon cinnamon.)
- 1 teaspoons ground Jamaican allspice (You can use regular allspice.)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon round nutmeg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup steel cut oats
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1/2 cup dates, diced
- 3/4 cup golden raisins
Preparation time 25mins
Cooking time 45mins
In a large mixing bowl, cream together well the butter and brown and white sugar. Add the eggs and beat about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and spices and blend well. Add the milk to the batter.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda and add one-third of this dry mixture at a time to the wet mixture blending well. Add the oats and work into the batter. Finally, add the nuts, dates, and raisins.
Using a spring-form scoop, dollop the batter on to a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Do not crowd cookies giving about 2-3” space between each. Bake in preheated 350°F oven about 10 minutes. Repeat with all the batter. Let cool and eat.
(Note: These also make a cute mini-muffin using cupcake liners if you want.)
