Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

1 lb. Pitted dates
2 cups Water
1/3 cup Tahini (Old Fashioned Peanut Butter May be substituted)
1 cups Wheat germ
9 cups Old fashioned rolled oats
2 tsp. Baking powder
2 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
2 cups Chopped Nuts
2 1/2 cups Raisin

Heat over to 350F. Chop dates in food processor. Add part or all of the
water and blend until dates are pureed. Pour puree and any remaining
water into a very large mixing bowl. Add peanut butter and blend well.
Add wheat germ, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and blend
well. Add vanilla while beaters are mixing the dough. Slowly blend in
nuts and raisins. Batter will be very stiff. Blend until all ingredients
are evenly distributed. Drop onto non-stick sprayed cookie sheet and
flatten with a floured fork. These cookies won't spread so may be baked
close together. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Store in refrigerator.
