    Ducky's Note:

    Saw this recipe by Cary Neff of the Miraval Spa on the Oprah show. It is supposed to be a more healthy alternative to the 'purist' chocolate chip cookie. I made these but was skeptical that the purists around me would eat them. They did. Had to hide them to save them for a dinner gathering. These are moist and chewy and the banana taste didn't seem to be overpowering. I used all-purpose flour as I couldn't see going out to buy another type of flour (already have 3 different kinds at home) just to make these. We will have these again. I didn't get 8 dozen cookies but mine may have been larger than the recipe intends.

      We are enjoying these cookies as well - obviously not your traditional choco chip butten laden cookies, but tasty and fairly low sugar. I also used 1/2 whole wheat with 1/2 unbleached. I used the prune puree (aka baby food) since I had some on hand. I think my children would say they'd like them a little sweeter, but I wouldn't. I think 8 dozen would mean a whole bunch of tiny cookies...I just did them regular drop-size and got 3 dozen. Thanks Ducky!I

      Excellent cookies! I had a lot of bananas that were turning brown quickly and wanted to use them to make something other than banana bread. These were perfect: no overwhelming banana flavor, and soft and cake-y (my favorite kind of cookie!). I used half dark and half milk chocolate chips. I think next time I'll try replacing half the AP flour with whole wheat. Thanks for sharing!

      I used 1/2 wheat flour, 1/2 unbleached white flour and dark chocolate chips. They were pretty tasty. These cookies have a soft cake-like texture.
