Preparation time 5mins
Cooking time 17mins
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together the canola oil, honey, eggs, vanilla extract, raisins, chopped walnuts, wheat germ, and rolled oats.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, powdered milk, and salt.
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until well-combined.
Using a mini ice cream scoop or small spoon, scoop out spoonfuls of the cookie dough and place on the prepared baking sheet. Cookies will not spread too much, so there's no need to leave a lot of room between each.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until dry around the edges. Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
