Oatmeal Raisinette Cookies

This is a delightful twist on a classic, and I will certainly be making these throughout the year, not just at Halloween when there is a ton of candy around. These cookies are not overly sweet, and they have a chewy texture. As you know, I'm not in love with raisins, so having chocolate covered raisin is just the right mix of chocolate and raisins in this cookie.

What's your favorite twist on a classic?

1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 egg whites
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup raisinettes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg whites and mix. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. When it is fully incorporated, mix in the rolled oats and raisinettes. Drop by rounded tablespoon-fulls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. 
Makes 18 cookies.
