These are quite tasty! I made a half recipe and still got 20 cookies, so I'm imagining to get 24 they'd have to be pretty big! After reading other reviews I pulsed my old-fashioned oatmeal in a coffee grinder just a bit and the texture was perfect for me. I also decreased the sugar and chocolate chips a bit based on personal preference. Toddler DS devoured two in moments and begged for more, so I definitely call this a winner recipe! Thanks for posting!

These are tasty & a great way to use up ripe bananas. Reminded me of eating a banana choc chip muffin top. DH said a little less oatmeal & a few more choc chips & they'd be awesome. But whole family did enjoy them. I used quick oats - still a pretty chewy texture. Maybe next time I'd try blending the oatmeal to a powder first (as I do in another choc chip recipe I have).

Those darn overripe bananas!! This major heat is making it a little hard to keep up with the ripening process! So recipes like this are a great find. I used 1/2 white & whole wheat flour, mini choc chips & Splenda for the sugar. I got about 1 1/2 dozen or so but I made them kinda on the large side so baking time was around 11 min. I'm saving a few for the hubby but taking the rest to a neighbor. They smelled great & look yummy so I am hoping they are enjoyed by all! Thank u for sharing this!

These were a snack for me and my company while watching a movie. A few liked them, but most said they were too chewy. I'm thinking that you meant quick oats or whatnot? I used rolled oats and boy, did they keep a chewy texture. LOL! Hey, but you have me liking them, cause they have chocolate in them. :D Thanks for the experience! I might try it with quick oats.

My husband and I loved these cookies! We added a few tablespoons of peanut butter to the batter before we added the dry ingredients. They turned out more the consistency of a muffin rather than a cookie but we both thought that was ok. Thanks for the great recipe Missy #2, this will be one of my go-to recipes for old bananas!

I used applesauce instead of the banana for these because that's what I had on hand, and we love these. They are a bit gummy in texture, but it's nice that they don't dry out. I also use semisweet choc. chips. Nice recipe!

I made these and they are pretty good. For some reason mine seem to fall apart easily and seem a little gummy. But I found that if they are stored in the frig or freezer they stay together. Good way to use up ripe bananas!

I make these with dark chocolate chips and use a little less sugar than indicated. (I only buy dark chocolate). These cookies are amazing! I made them for my medical school class and everyone loved them! I also use light margarine to lower the fat and calories even more.
