Wholesome Goodness - Oatmeal Chocolate & Raisin Cookies

After waking up from a rather long nap Sunday afternoon, I decided that I wanted a warm chocolate cookie. So, I set about to make this one chocolate cookie and ended up making a whole batch of them! And then I made whole new batch today as there was a request for plain oatmeal raisin ones.  Here's half a batch of those cookies jam-packed (as you can see) with oatmeal and raisins. 
Except, I couldn't resist and ended up making a small batch of oatmeal-raisin and chocolate ones too. We didn't have any chocolate-chips, but a couple bars of Ikea dark chocolate. I chopped half a bar up and sprinkled them into the batter- which seemed to do the trick!
