To make these cookies you will need

1/2 cup butter or margarine softened

1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup uncooked rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Beat butter and the sugars until it is blended. Add the egg and vanilla, beat it until fluffy.

Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda then stir into the creamed mixture with oats, chocolate chips, raisins, and nuts.

I used the cookie scoop to drop scoopful of dough 2 inches apart. This stainless steel, large cookie scoop has a wonderful soft grip that absorbs pressure, and allows us to easily place an even amount of dough when we are baking cookies. 

danesco oxo kitchen baking mat
I used the silicone coated non-stick baking mat from Danesco that measures 16.5"x 11.75". I think it is the perfect baking mat to use when we are making cookies. This mat can with hold up to 600F. I like that it is easy to clean by hand or in the dishwasher. We can use this mat in the oven and microwave. 

Bake in a 375 F preheated oven for about 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Remove and leave it on a wire rack to cool.

danesco oxo oven theromometer
The Good Grip oven thermometer is a handy tool to have. I like that it has a frosted glass that lets us see the large numbers easily. The stainless steel, thermometer has a non-slip soft grip. It has to be placed in a cold oven, closer to the food for it to show the accurate temperature. There is a clip that allows us to attach the thermometer by hanging it up or keeping it standing upright on the oven rack. I like that it has both Fahrenheit and Celsius.
