Into a large bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add to the avocado mixture. Beat slowly, gradually increasing the speed to mix well. Mix in by hand the oats and walnuts, and raisins, if desired. Drop the mixture by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cooked.
