  4. In a smaller bowl mix together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  5. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture into butter mixture.
  6. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and raisins.
  7. I used an ice cream scooper then divided it in half as I did not want giant cookies onto cookie sheets (which i lined with parchment paper to make less mess)
  8. Bake 6 to 7 minutes (depending on desire- if you want a crunchier or softer cookie and the size of your cookie dough).
  9. Cool slightly, remove from sheet to wire rack and let them set.
