Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Craisin and Pecan Cookies

My husband and I were going out to a movie and dinner with friends. I wanted to bring a special treat to my girlfriend’s mother who was babysitting all of our kids. I decided to make some tasty oatmeal cookies with dark chocolate, craisins, and pecans (inspired by Bethie). The dark chocolate tasted so good with the tart craisins and I loved the crunchy pecans. I decided to use whole wheat flour to make them a bit healthier. They were a huge hit with everyone and they were so easy to make…I love that.
