Ingredients

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup of the flour, the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup flour, the maple syrup, melted butter, vanilla extract and egg until smooth. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and blend well. Stir in the chocolate, pecans and raisins if using. Cover the bowl and chill in the refrigerator until very firm, 1 hour. 

Position a rack in both the upper and lower thirds of the oven, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 

Use a 1-tablespoon measuring spoon to portion the dough onto the prepared baking sheets-15 cookies per sheet, evenly spaced. Sprinkle with turbinado sugar if using. 

Bake until lightly golden on the outside but still slightly soft in the centers, about 12 minutes, being careful to not over-bake. Cool on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
