This recipe uses oil in place of melted or softened butter. It's a nice compromise between a dense, chewy cookie and a more fluffy one. If you want a more substantial cookie, use old-fashioned oats in place of the quick-cooking kind. You can also use much less sweetener if you are adding dried fruit.
