Yummy Oatmeal Cookies

These oatmeal cookies are always a hit.  I usually take them along for a snack when we are vending  because they are very filling and we kid ourselves that it isn't so bad because they have some healthy ingredients.  I often make them at the same time as I make our favorite granola since I am using many of the same ingredients.  Always happy to get two things done with only one mess : D

Oatmeal Cookies

Beat together the following-
1 C butter
3/4 C sugar
1/4 C brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 egg
1/4 C water

1 C whole wheat flour - white works too
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
4 C organic oatmeal
1 C chopped nuts - we use pecans or almonds
1 C raisins, craisins or chocolate chips - our favorite combo is craisins and white chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Cool on rack.
