    Step 1
    Preheat a convection oven to 325F with a low fan. Whisk flour, baking powder, and spices until combined. Set aside.
    Step 2
    Cream the butter, sugar, and salt. Add molasses, vanilla, and zest and then beat in eggs slowly.
    Step 3
    Beat in the flour mixture until just combined and then the oats, walnuts, chocolate chips, and raisins.
    Step 4
    Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop, scoop 1 ounce of cookie dough onto a baking sheet and gently flatten. Place about 8 cookies on each baking sheet to allow room for spreading.
    Step 5
    Bake until golden around the edges, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly on the sheets and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
    Tip:
    For a more well-done cookie, bake a few extra minutes.
