I put together a recipe that comes pretty close. Enjoy!

Captain Dan's Beefy Captain Cookies
(This is my version...Captain Dan wouldn't share his secret recipe)

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup & leveled
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooking oats
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup cranberries
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 cup butter (melted slightly in the microwave)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Stir all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
1 slightly beaten egg
1/2 cup butter (melted slightly in the microwave)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Use the back of a large spoon to work it all together. You may even need to use your hands to get everything incorporated. Then roll the cookie dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, place on a parchment covered baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.
