Didn’t have full 3 cups of oats so I used quinoa flakes for the difference. Will they stay good for 2 days? These cookies turned out so good! Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar on top of cookies before baking. These sound and look delicious but I am skeptical because of all the butter. Sorry! I made them because I had some overripe bananas, and it was a stretch for me because I have a former-favorite oatmeal cookie recipe that I’ve been baking for decades. These tasted good, but were hopelessly soft and crumbly, when fully cooked. The oatmeal banana cookie recipe looks really good. I am very very pleased with the result. Scoop the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet, spacing the dough balls evenly apart. I found them not tasty at all, very bland, and will probably throw them away. These Banana Drop Cookies are quite light and fluffy, soft to the bite, so don't expect crunchy! Sometimes when making cookie dough, we don’t get the oatmeal completely mixed into the butter base of the batter, so the last batch at the bottom of the bowl, without much oatmeal will spread out, buttery and thin in the pan. , delicious! Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture 5cm apart onto baking tray. I was suspicious of this recipe but we have banana bread and cake fatigue. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. All in they turned out great, not flat like the picture but more peaked but no problem with too much liquid. But switching up your side dishes can bring a refreshing change to a classic comfort food dish. I don’t know what people are doing to make these runny, but they turned out great for us. These are amazing, they are the perfect banana bread in cookie form! We used regular oats, skimped a bit on the sugar, and added raisins at the request of my 3-year-old. I added chocolate chips and pecan pieces to half of the dough. Actually, weighing is much faster than measuring. Delicious! I’m not sure why others have a problem with the batter being runny, I did not have that issue at all, but I do use a stand mixer. My first 2 batches came out exactly as described, and are quite delicious (I added mini chocolate chips). I also use butter and not margarine or butter substitute. Can I freeze this? Thanks for a terrific and versatile recipe. 154 reviews. But…they could’ve been bland because you CHANGED the recipe by adding 1 whole cup of FLOUR!!? First recipe of Jenn’s that I didn’t love! Replaced 0.5 tsp of the 1.5 tsp of cinnamon with the same amount of cardamom and added 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips to final batter. Perhaps your cookie sheet wasn’t cooled enough between batches? However, no need, the cookies turned out great. Came out really good, crispy oatmeal cookie. Just made these, came out great soft in the middle and crispy around the edges! I used old fashioned oats since I didn’t have quick. Wow. . Glad you enjoyed the cookies and thanks for your kind words!

I’m just wondering if the amounts got switched between the flour and oatmeal! Hope that helps — I’d love to hear how they turn out if you make them this way! I’d suggest replacing no more than 1/2 cup of the all-purpose flour oat flour. 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off Had some ripe bananas and just wasn’t in the mood for bread/muffins. I had 3 small-ish bananas to use up, so I put them all in. I made them exactly as written, except I did add about 3/4 a cup of mini chocolate chips. This is going to be a regular! Still delicious, but not nearly as appealing. If I could, do I have to thaw it first before baking? The rest of the recipe was followed as written. Disappointing and a waste of ingredients:(. You could cut back a little or try substituting but they wouldn’t be the same. I’ve had so much success with so many of your recipes I guess I got a little comfortable deviating from the recipe. Delicious! I let them go in the oven a couple extra minutes for a little crispier as per a suggestion on a different recipe and they came out perfect. I gladly give it five stars!

The first batch I just sort of flattened out the cookie with my fingers only a bit sticky and I got a taller kind of puffed up mound cookie tasty and soft but not like depicted in photo. Thanks for a great recipe. Added a chopped bar of 70% dark chocolate (35g) and the result was PERFECT. Healthy snack. Wow!! I am doing the same thing and am very happy doing it, despite less earnings. A flavourful and filling cookie Thanks for the recipe.
