I made half with Raisins and walnuts and the other half with chocolate chip and walnuts. I baked in two 9x13 and was gonna cut them into square cookies. But it came out more like a cake. :( I guess I should of rolled them and flattened them into cookies. Kinda disappointed! Thought they were going to be chewy.
I used the peanuts, raisins and the cinnamon. At first I thought that I had only used 1 cup of flour because the batter is quite runny, but I had used the right amount. I also cooked them for a couple of minutes longer so they browned a bit. They turned out great and the house smells wonderful! I will make these again. Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks Boomie! :)
These were good! I made 2 dozen, half with walnuts and half without for the kids and added cinnamon to the batter. We always have bananas in our house so these cookies are perfect. Tastes like a mini banana bread. Made for 123Hits.
