Baby's Oat Biscuits

Now that Kate has sprouted a few teeth, she's chewing on everything.  These cookies are wonderful because they're a) homemade b) quick c) sugarless d) healthy e) easy for babies to chew.  I toss her one to snack on while I'm getting her meal ready and she's completely content.  Beware they are crumbly, so they're not the ideal church or in-the-car snack but are superb otherwise.
Looks like we found a winner!

1 cup quick oats
1 cup oat flour (grind about 1 1/2 cups quick oats into a course flour in a food processor or blender)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup overripe bananas (about two)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons oil

Mash bananas.  Mix in oil and vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and blend well.  Drop by spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.  Cool.
