This is a cookie that my family has been making for a long time. It is incredibly moist and chewy cookie. We sometimes top it with a frosting but it tastes just as great alone.

These did have a rather cake-like texture, very light and flufffy. But they tasted very good-- kind of like banana bread in cookie form. I substituted gluten-free flour and rice milk.

Really yummy. But it had the texture of a muffin. Next time, I think I'll add some nuts and some oats. Also spraying the spoon with cooking spray before doling out the batter makes it come off the spoon easier. Great recipe though!!
