I made these as soon as I saw the recipe. I happened to have an overripe banana and was wondering what to do with it.
These are very fast and easy to make. I'm always looking for recipes that use oil instead of butter, because I get my butter in big blocks and it's such a pain to cut it, weigh it, and soften it for baking. Measuring out the oil is so much easier.
I reduced the sugar a little. I used 2/3 cup of brown sugar instead of a whole cup. They were still very sweet (I used the choc chip option) so you could reduce to 1/2 cup.
For the flour, I used whole wheat for 1/2 cup and the rest white flour.
I used regular cow's milk, since we don't have milk allergy.
Thanks for posting the recipe. These have less fat than most cookies and they are really good. My kids ate almost all of them as soon as they came out of the oven.

You can also sub about half a cup of applesauce or other fruti puree (babyfood) for the banana-- this is very similar to my oatmeal cookie recipe.
