Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups raisins

1 1/2 unsweetened granola mix

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

1 cup chocolate M&M’s

1 cup firmly light brown sugar

3/4 cup sugar

In large kitchen bowl combine raisins, oats, M&M’s and granola. In separate bowl sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. In stand mixer mix two sugars until blended. Add butter to the sugars and beat until it reaches a smooth and creamy texture. Scrap side of bowl several times until completely mixed.

Combine eggs and vanilla and add slowly to sugars. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture until just incorporated. Add raisin-granola mixture to sugars until combined.
