Kitchen Sink Cookies

I named these cookies Kitchen Sink Cookies because they have everything in them but the kitchen sink. They are packed full of fiber, fruit, nuts and yes, some sweetness!
Cream together:
1 cup Shortening
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1  1/2 cup brown sugar
1  1/2 tsp vanilla
Add and mix:
3 eggs
Add and mix:
1  1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1  1/2 teaspoon salt
Add and mix:
2  3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
The next ingredients may needed to be mixed in by hand.
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup oat bran
1/2 cup wheat bran
2 cups dried cranberries
1  1/2 cup broken pecans
1  1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Make sure everything is mixed well. Place 2-3 heaping tablespoons sized dough on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. 

I will be sharing this recipe to these blog parties:
