Amped up Oatmeal Cookies

Do you have a go-to cookie when you're craving something a little sweet, something a little chocolaty and something a little chewy? These cookies are just what you're looking for. This is the recipe on the lid of Quaker Oats but I added a few more things to make them even better (yes, it is possible). Make these for your kids when they get home from school, or take a plate to your co-workers. You'll be their favorite person. Enjoy!
