Trail Mix Cookies

I found this recipe here. It sounds wonderful, doesn't it? I can't wait to try them.

Trail Mix Cookies

1 c. butter (I never use margarine)
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. freshly ground whole wheat flour (or you can use store-bought wheat flour or white flour--I have never used store-bought wheat flour, not sure if it would be too dense. Freshly ground whole wheat is SO light. I probably would use white first. If I used store-bought wheat flour, I may use less than the recipe called for)
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
3 c. whole grain oats (I don't use quick oats)
1 c. sunflower seeds
4 T. ground flax seed (approximately, I just eye-ball it)
4 T. wheat germ (again, approximate, I just pour until it looks right)
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1 c. chocolate chips, or raisins, dried cranberries--whatever you like! We, of course, like chocolate chips best!

Combine sugars and butter and cream. Add eggs. Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Add extras and mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
