These are one of my faves, and one of Susan Sarandon's, too.

It's a cute story, how we met. I met Susan Sarandon at a red-carpet event. She complimented me on my necklace, which Sheryl Crow had admired at a Rolling Stones concert a few weeks earlier.

I had another necklace like it in my purse to give to Sheryl, so I laughed and said, "I have one in my purse for Sheryl Crow. Do you want one, too?"

I felt like one of those guys on the street saying, "Hey, want to buy a watch?"

I told her I would send her one, and she just smiled and said, "No, you won't." But I got the contact info for her agent and I did send her one, along with some of my BethennyBakes Banana Oatmeal Cookies.

Now I send her cookies on a regular basis.


  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup banana puree (1 medium-size banana)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 375°F.

    Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

    Combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, until well combined.

    Use a medium-size ice cream scoop or a large spoon to scoop batter onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.

    Bake for 12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking, or bake until the edges of the cookies are light brown.
