Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together butter and oil until completely blended. Whisk in sugar, egg, vanilla and salt; set aside. In a second large bowl, combine oats, wheat germ, flour and baking powder, then add to butter mixture and stir well to combine thoroughly. Fold in raisins and pecans. 

Drop dough by the spoonful onto prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart, and bake until cooked through and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Carefully transfer to wire racks and set aside to let cool completely.
