Before you begin baking, mix together the beaten egg and vanilla. Stir in the raisins, and allow to soak in the egg mixture for an hour or two, stirring periodically.

In a separate bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, and banana until combined. Add in the egg, vanilla, and raisin mixture. Gradually add in the flour mixture until thoroughly mixed. Stir in the oats. (Dough will not be very stiff.)
