These were delicious! I made these healthier by using Splenda, whole wheat flour, and sugar-free chocolate chips. All in all they were delicious and made two dozen by using heaping teaspoons. Made for the Dining Daredevils, ZWT5

I'm having a real hard time knowing how to rate these cookies. They were very easy to throw together and the directions are clear and precise, but hubby and I didn't really care for them. My dilemma is that everyone else that tried them loved them, so, it's obviously just a preference problem and not a recipe problem. They produce a very 'bananaey' cake-like cookie, so, if that's what you're looking for, these will be great for you!

This recipe makes soft cake-like cookies. I've made it once as written, and once with the addition of peanut butter. I replaced half of the butter with creamy peanut butter, and about a third of chips were peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips. Both ways are tastier, but given how I feel about peanut butter with banana with chocolate (YUMMY!), I'll probably stick to my variant with peanut butter. My children love "soft cookies with chocolate chips!!!"
