Oatmeal Raisin Bites

I got this recipe at my last WW meeting, and since I had some whole wheat flour left over from making bread the other day, I just raided my pantry for the rest of the ingredients and went to work. They turned really great, the kids couldn't stop eating them! I had probably a few too many myself too, oops!

Oatmeal Raisin Bites
1 1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup raisins, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until incorporated. Add gg and vanilla, mix thoroughly. Add oat mixture and mix until just combined, fold in raisins.

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

One cookie = 1 WW point
