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

Ingredients

uncooked rolled oats

1½ cup(s)

whole-grain wheat flour

¾ cup(s)

baking powder

½ tsp

table salt

¼ tsp

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

regular butter

½ cup(s), softened

packed brown sugar

½ cup(s)

sugar

¼ cup(s)

egg(s)

1 large

vanilla extract

1 tsp

raisins

1 cup(s), chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
