Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies

I saw the recipe for these wonderful cookies on the Picky Palate. These were very tasty. I love oatmeal raisin cookies but I don't really like all the cinnamon that goes in them so these were great because the combine the oatmeal and raisins with chocolate withou the cinnamon. My Grandpa Smith use to always put chocolate covered raisins in his cookies. They were always so tasty.
