1/2 teaspoon salt ( or a bit less)
3 cups rolled oats (1 cup old fashion and 2 fast cook)
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 sticks butter = 12 tablespoons
1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar (dark brown gives good mouth feel and chewy)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract plus a splash
Kosher salt for sprinkling on top.

Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl
Combine oats and raisins in a separate bowl
Beat until fluffy the butter and sugar and then add egg and vanilla.
Add flour mixture in batches mixing well between.
Mix in the oatmeal/raisins until just blended in.

Roll in to balls and put on baking sheet - press down a bit and then sprinkle with a half a pinch of the kosher salt.
