Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cream butter or margarine with mixer. Blend in whole eggs, sugar, and extract. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. When the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, add oats and pecans. Mix on lower speed until consistent.
  3. Drop pieces of the dough using an ice cream scoop onto an ungreased cookie tray roughly 3 to 4 inches apart.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Eight minutes would yield crispy cookies with a chewy, slightly doughy center. For harder, crispier cookies, bake longer. Cool on wire rack.

These cookies are great!

Excellent as is. I substituted two overripe bananas for the banana extract. Turned out yummy.

We all loved these, they didn't look too bad. Omitted nuts.

Instead of using banana extract I used one mashed banana and added about 1/4 c extra oatmeal. No nuts just raisins

Had to add additional flour to make them a bit more stiff. But as others have reviewed they still fell apart. The good thing is that with the additional flour they puffed up and I made whoopie...

These came out tasting great. They don't look done when they come out but let them cool down and they crisp right up. We used two over ripe bananas instead of banana extract and they were great....
