Oatmeal Raisin Cookes

OK so it's the day after Christmas....Boxing Day for all of my British friends and I'm making cookies!  I really don't need any more sweets but my son is off with his friends to a cabin in the woods so I .....being the crazy mother I am......simply MUST make a little something to send with them.  After all they could get caught in a snow storm and these cookies might be their only food for days!

Super simple and I count them as healthy because of the wheat germ...big smile!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
2 sticks Margarine  or Crisco ( I use Crisco butter flavor Crisco in these instead)
1 cup brown sugar packed
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup self rising flour
1/2 cup bran ( or wheat germ)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips or raisins

Beat sugars and margarine until creamy
Add eggs and vanilla
Add flour, bran, cinnamon and salt; mix well
Add oats, and chocolate chips (or raisins); mix well

I chill the dough for about 30 minutes at this point......

Drop rounded tablespoons onto parchment paper lined 
cookie sheet
Bake about 14 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven 
Cool slightly before transferring to racks

I usually use a small ice cream type scoop to make sure all the cookies are the same size and I make them quite large so I bake them about 18 minutes.
