Day 2 of Oatmeal Week, I have been in my kitchen trying some new recipes and tweaking some old ones. I must say they all came out great. I also am trying to get my photography much better, and I did really good today, I am very proud of myself.
So today we have my famous Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Cookies! These are the cookies that make some people in my house become cookie snatchers (and it's not my kiddies, it's my hubbie) he loves these cookies, when they are baking and he smells them, he says, "Are you making my cookies?" I start laughing, because he is not a snack eater, but he will sure enough eat these. These cookies are so chewy and tasty you won't even believe that they are really a healthy treat.

1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
