June’s theme for Fill the Cookie Jar (join the club here!) is Father’s Day-cookies your father would love. My dad loves a soft oatmeal cookie with plump juicy raisins. And oatmeal IS full of fiber.

I decided to put a twist on the basic oatmeal raisin cookie however and aimed at a cowboy oatmeal cookie-you know, with all the mix-ins. But I added rich, creamy chocolate hazelnut spread with sweet flaked coconut and heart healthy chocolate chips.
