Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I am always on the lookout for recipes with made with whole grains, no sugar, and taste good!
Houston, we have lift off!!!
These are dang good, but there is a secret - you have to use raw honey for these to come out fantastic.  Plain old honey, works, but then these cookies are just okay.  I buy my raw honey at Sprouts, or at local farmers markets.  My husband ate so many of these and my son couldn't believe they were whole wheat!
I loved that they didn't have sugar.  Enjoy!
