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.

Delicious, soft and cakey. Very quick and easy to make. I made them quite small and ended up with 46 cookies.

A nice alternative to banana bread. I baked at 350 degrees for 17 minutes. I used the walnuts and also added a dash of vanilla as well as a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I doubled the recipe and 1/3 of my flour was whole wheat. The yield was 6 1/2 dozen.

I made these last night as a last-minute snack for my daughter's parent's day out class. They are nice and moist and very easy to throw together. These are a great use for over-ripe bananas. I omitted the nuts and made 24 cookies because I wanted them to be bigger. Thanks for the great recipe!

These cookies were pretty good. They definitely satisfied the sweetness I was in the mood for, but I think they could have been made a little better with chocolate chips instead of nuts. However, the sweetness and banana balanced perfectly. Thanks for posting this recipe!

perfectly balanced banana flavor. my DH with crohn's actually loved this recipe. i omitted the nuts, added vanilla, and baked at 350 a little longer to brown the bottom of the cookies. i even broiled them so the tops were browny (as per DH request). crispy on the outside, cakey on the inside! i even freezed some leftover batch in a ziploc bag, thawed, cut a hole in the corner, and squeezed the creamy batter onto a baking sheet... voila! this recipe is a keeper!

Followed recipe except lowered temp to 375 and baked for 11 minutes. Moist, chewy and yummy. Used old fashioned oats, added the nuts and will be sure to do the same in future batches.
