      I have no idea if these are better the 2nd day because they are sooo amazing I had to review them immediately. I ate three before the 2nd batch had come out of the oven! I only made half the recipe. The instructions are excellent and the cookies are delicious. I used all butter instead of shortening. My banana was so ripe it was practically fermenting. I don't use chocolate chips but make my own (better chocolate and nice variety of sizes). I used 100 grams of 70%cocoa chocolate and it was perfect. Excellent recipe, will make again. Thanks for posting!

      These were good but I guess I wanted or expected more of a banana flavor. I only used half the amount of chocolate chips, looked like a lot then, but they really overpowered everything. I wasn't sure how to get in more banana without messing it all up so if I do this one again I may have to play with it. Thanks NurseDi!
