These cookies are great in my opinion for a couple of different reasons. First they are made of ingredients that are commonly found in my kitchen and second because there are only 60 calories for cookie. Making this cookie lover who would like to get fit very happy.

2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 cup each granulated sugar and light molasses
2 large eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp each baking soda and cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup raisins

Heat oven to 350F. Lightly coat baking sheet(s) with nonstick spray.Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl with mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy. Beat in molasses, eggs, vanilla, baking soda, cinnamon and salt (may look curdled). On low speed beat in flour. Stir in oats and raisins. Drop level tablespoons 1 1/2 in. apart on a baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until tops look dry. Cool on baking sheet 1 minute before removing to wire rack to cool completely.Store airtight at room temperature up to 5 days or freeze up to 3 months
