Oatmeal Raisin Breakfast Cookies

adapted--again--from smittenkitchen and--again--if you want an awesome regular cookie recipe, check hers out)
Serves 12-15 (um, or 6 in our family)
1/3 C butter, soft     ($.65)
1/3 C brown sugar, packed     ($.20)
1 egg     ($.10)
½ t vanilla     ($.01)
¾ C whole wheat flour     ($.15)
½ t baking soda     ($.01)
½ t cinnamon     ($.01)
1 ½ C oats (I use quick)     ($.13)
¾ C raisins (I do part raisins, part coconut. You can also add or sub chocolate chips, but shockingly I prefer it with the dried fruit. It makes it softer, chewier, and better. The chocolate chips yield a crunchier cookie.)     ($.40--raisings)
1/4 C chopped walnuts (Optional. We don't do as my kids don't like nuts and I don't want to consume entire pan of breakfast cookies.)

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Sift flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add dry to wet. Stir in oats and dried fruit. Add a few walnuts if you want a little protien.

It will be stiff. If you don't want to eat it all for breakfast (a definite risk), you can freeze it in little balls and bake it up whenever the whim hits.

Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
