I was looking for an easy recipe to use up some over-ripe bananas~~~and these were so good! A wonderful little moist cake-like cookie. I had to reduce baking time to about ten minutes though...the reccomended fifteen would have left me with little more than charred banana flavored lumps. :D Thanks!!

Like banana bread in a cookie! Just the right amount of spice too. I got only 24 cookies, cause I like them larger and I got better performance only cooking for 12 minutes in my oven, but yum!

We LOVE these cookies. Very tender and moist. They do resemble the flavor and texture of banana bread. Kids and husband enjoyed them and they didn't last very long. I liked the spiced banana flavor. Thanks for something different and very easy to make.
