Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Next in large mixing bowl add your dry ingredients (cake mix, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and oats). Stir well with a large spoon or spatula.
Add the butter in, it should be softened and cooled so that it doesn't scramble the egg.
Add the oil and egg.
Mix well with a hand mixer until well mixed. If your dough seems to dry, try adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of water. Stir in your raisins, chocolate chips, or desired add-ins with a large spoon.
Use a large cookie scoop (about two tablespoons) to form the dough into balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 14 to 15 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden.
Let the cookies rest on the sheet for 5 to 10 minutes before transferring.
I've found that at my local grocery store, yellow cake mix comes in either 15 oz or 16.5 oz. You can use either size but if using the larger size you may need to add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water to your mix.
