Oatmeal- Raisin Bites

My daughter and I love to bake together, it's one of our favorite hobbies to do and being that she is 3 it's the easiest way to keep her little hands busy and not writing on my walls!;  so we decided to make these yummy oatmeal raisin bites.  I don't know about you but I have this really bad tendency of eating more then just one, when something is mini or bite sized. For some reason I lack self control in that department when it comes to mini food.  However the good thing about these sweet little treats is that they are not that bad for you they contain oats whole grain flour and raisins.  I hope you enjoy these as much as my family did, we gobbled them up!  Happy eating from my kitchen to yours!

Ingredients needed:

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

3/4 cup whole-grain wheat flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

1tsp vanilla extract

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 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 greased cookie sheet ( I used pam) about 1 inch apart.  Bake 9-10 minutes for chewy cookies or 11-12 minutes for crispy cookies.  Remove from oven and let cookies rest about 3 minutes, then remove to wire rack to let cool completely.   

Eat and enjoy!!!
