Hi again, jkath --

As promised, here's my recipe (my grandma's, actually) for banana oatmeal cookies:

2 c. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 c. sugar
1 c. soft shortening
1 c. mashed bananas
2 eggs
2 c. oats (quick or old-fashioned)

Sift together dry ingredients. Add shortening, mashed bananas, and eggs. Beat until smooth. Fold in rolled oats. Drop by tablespoon-fulls on well-greased sheet.

375 F., 10-12 minutes

Pineapple version's identical except that you substitute the same amount of crushed pineapple for the mashed banana.

You don't want to get these very brown -- nicest texture IMHO is just starting to brown.
