Weight Watchers Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Bites..

So my Mom.. is doing Weight Watchers, and is having amazing success with it, 1yr down and she has lost over 80lbs!! am jealous but ever so proud. The perk is she is trying new things!! Many new things, no cookies aren't new to her lol but she gets these weekly recipes at her meetings and this was in it. It is a fantastic Oatmeal Cookie recipe!! soo moist and tender, and its evil because its next to impossible to eat just 1!! They are great and only 1 pt each for those following Weight Watchers!! Really a very tasty little cookie!!!

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  
1/4 cup(s) sugar  
1/2 cup(s) packed brown 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 un-greased 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. 1 pt per serving.

Change the flavor of this recipe by adding walnuts instead of raisins (could affect POINTS values).
Oh and yea.. couldn't pass up a picture of the dough in my nifty new 5 qt Kitchen Aide!! So the Best Mom ever when the first Christmas Home she treats you to the best mixer ever!!
