Oatmeal chocolate chip, raisin cookies

These cookies are a new favorite of ours, I make them about once a week. I found the original recipe here but of course I tweaked it a bit. I hope you like it, they go great with coffee.

Oatmeal chocolate chip and raisin cookies
1/2 cup (1 stick) + 6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tsp flax seed, ground
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins
Cream the butter and sugars together. Add eggs one at a time mixing well with each addition. Add vanilla. In a seperate bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt,flax seed, and cinnamon. Add to wet ingredients mixing well each time. Fold in the oats and choclate chips and raisins. Bake on greased baking sheets for 9 ish minutes at 350 degrees. They will still look under done but will be done, if that makes sense. If they cook too long they will be hard.
Edited to add:
I just made these with half whole wheat flour and half white, I also used dried plums instead of raisins. Im betting most dried fruits would be awesome in these. It took a tiny bit linger to cook, but tastes delicious.
