You can make this recipe with as little as 2 tablespoons of oil. But since the cookies aren’t very sweet, the added richness enhances the flavor and texture.

You may add cake flour to this recipe – just mix a small amount with the rolled oats until you achieve a drop cookie batter consistency. You can substitute all purpose flour, but the cookies will not be quite as tender.


Instead of the 1/4 cup of oil in Banana Oat Cookies, use 2 tablespoons of peanut oil plus 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. Toss the oil with the oats as directed above. Combine the peanut butter with the mashed or pureed bananas, and proceed with the recipe.
