These were ok, I wasn't expecting a cake type cookie. The batter was very loose, so I put it in the fridge for a half hour. The cooking time was about 8 mins, but you had to watch them closely. Once out of the oven the texture was crispy with a soft center which was pleasing, but shortly thereafter they lost the crispiness, and just became a soft cake like cookie. The flavour was good.
Hubby likes them, but they're not for me. Thanks for posting. (I've added a picture)
These are so easy to make and are wonderful. Thanks.
These win points for being very quick and easy and kid friendly. I used half whole wheat and half white flour. I also found the cooking time to be a bit long and had them in for 7 minutes The bottoms were very brown the middles mushy, so I may have needed to make them a bit smaller. Also, I garnished each cookie with a slice of banana which was nice.
