Chewy oatmeal chocolate fruit and nut cookies - that's a mouthful!

I just love chewy oatmeal cookies, something about the added texture they have, plus they add something healthy and fiberous to a buttery treat. Some people like chocolate chip cookies, some oatmeal raisin. These cookies satisfy both plus a little something extra. I fed these to my family and everyone gobbles them up - even the raisin haters.  

1 1/2 cups AP flour
1 tsp bs
1 tsp bp
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup raisins (thompson)
1 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped roasted almonds
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup unsalted butter (room temp)
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
DIRECTIONS:  About 40 cookies
Preheat oven to 350
Sift flour, cinnamon, bs, bp and salt together 
set aside. Separately dust chocolate chips, raisins, oats and almonds in a bit of the flour mixture. Cream butter and sugar together with a hand mixer until fluffy and lighter in colour, add the corn syrup then eggs one at a time. Then begin to stir in flour mixture slowly until it is no longer visible (do not over mix - will result in tough cookies).  In batches fold in the raisin, chocolate, oat, almond mixture.  On a cookie tray drop tbsp of batter 2 inches apart and back for 10-12 mins (until golden around the edges) . Remove from oven and let sit after a few mins transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
