This should do, quinoa flakes make a good oatmeal sub, but if you use gluten free oats, then thats perfectly fine too!:

1 cup (1/2 pound or 2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, OR 1 cup shortening

1 1/2 cups agave nectar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 large eggs, well beaten

1 Tbsp vanilla

(1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon cloves )-these really make it a great flavor, but are not absolutely necessary

3 cups rolled oats (or quinoa flakes)

1 1/2 cups raisins or chopped apricots

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans(optional)

1 Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two large cookie sheets or line with Silpat, parchment paper or waxed paper.

2 In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs. Add vanilla.

3 Mix flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in medium bowl. Stir dry ingredients into butter-sugar mixture. Stir in raisins and nuts. Stir in oats.

4 Spoon out dough by large tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets, leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie.

5 Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets. Then carefully remove them, using a metal spatula, to a wire rack. Cool completely. They will be quite soft until completely cooled. Store tightly covered.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

It uses lots of butter but who said a cookies supposed to be healthy??
