I have made this recipe five times each time doing it slightly different. Great for using overripe bananas. Follow the recipe especially combining the first 6 ingredients in a bowl. I increased the nutmeg and cinnamon to double each. I also increased the oatmeal to 2 cups. I am a Home Economist Food prep. teacher and Nutritionist and love to cook and experiment. My family loves this recipe slightly changed from the original. Happy Baking!

Excellent cookies. I will be making these often. Followed measurements exactly but left out the nuts as I didn't have any. Still a perfect cookie and my dh loved them. At a 400 degree oven, it only took 9 minutes. I think I will try at 375 for about 12 min. Thanks for posting this recipe

best use of over ripe bananas! simple enough to get into the toaster oven before having coffee in the morning, easy to downsize the recipe if you only have one banana - They are good for this type of pretend cookie. They are better warm. The next time I make them I am going to try adding almond flour in hopes of firming it up a bit. Since almond flour is just ground up almonds it should work. ( ps I added 2 measured TBSP of brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon) (pss These are more of a breakfast bar than a cookie - they need a new catgory.)

Very good, moist cookie. I underbaked the first couple of sheets. Good way touse up bananas when you want something different then banana bread.

These "cookies" were way to plain. I had to doctor them up way to much and even after that they still didn't taste very good. I think I will still keeping looking for a good banana cookie recipe.

I'm pretty sure I followed the recipe, and these just didn't shape up to be good cookies. The taste is fine, but it's pretty much like banana bread, and it's easier to cook a loaf of bread than a couple batches of cookies.

EXCELLENT! I used two ripe bananas, pureed them in the food processor, totally forgot the egg, and used pecans instead of walnuts. These were incredibly GOOD, better than banana bread in my opinion. I think the 400 degree oven is a bit too hot, so I went down to 375 and put them in for 10-12 minutes and they came out perfect!
