Fruity oatmeal cookies

These are tasty, and almost healthy enough for breakfast cookies. They end up chewy, not crunchy and - for this very lazy baker - they are mixed by hand.

Adapted from Cape Cod Oatmeal Cookies in The Fannie Farmer Cookbook (hands down the best cookbook ever - if I could own only one cookbook, this would be it).

1 c whole wheat flour
2 c uncooked oatmeal
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
3/4 c brown sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
2 ripe bananas mashed
1 T vanilla
1/2 c melted butter
1 c dried fruit (I used a combination of cherries and cranberries)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Arrange by teaspoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheets and bake until edges are brown - about 10 minutes.
