1

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

2

In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. With the mixer running, add the eggs, one at a time, until each is incorporated. Stir in the vanilla extract.

3

In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, flour, wheat germ, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

4

With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients until just combined. Gently fold in the raisins.

5

Line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop one-fourth cup dough for each cookie and slightly flatten them, leaving 2 inches between each cookie (they will spread). Slightly flatten the top of each cookie and bake one tray at a time, on the center rack, for consistent baking and coloring. The cookies will be done when set and lightly colored and the edges are slightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes.
