These cookies are soooooooo delish! They are just sweet enough to satisfy my sweet tooth without making me go overboard!

Small oatmeal raisin cookies with a big granola taste. They’re loaded with fiber and rank high on the hunger-busting scale.


1 1/2 cup(s) rolled oats
3/4 cup(s) whole-grain wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup(s) butter, softened
1/2 cup(s) packed brown sugar
1/4 cup(s) sugar
1 large egg(s)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup(s) raisins, chopped


Preheat oven to 350ºF

In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; set aside. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and both sugars until incorporated. Add egg and vanilla; mix thoroughly. Add oat mixture and mix until just combined; fold in raisins.

Drop rounded teaspoons of batter onto 2 ungreased cookie sheets, about 1-inch apart each. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes for chewy cookies or 11 to 12 minutes for crispy cookies. Remove from oven and let cookies rest on cookie sheets for about 2 minutes; remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving.

Change the flavor of this recipe by adding walnuts instead of raisins (could affect POINTS values).
