    Veggie_Girl's Note:

    I love this recipe! I've been making it forever and finally have taken time to post it. It's nice to have another option for using up those over-ripe bananas. If I don't have time to actually make the cookies, I'll mash the bananas up in a tupperware and throw them in the freezer for later. ** Updated to be a vegan recipe. Also, I'd recommend replacing the cloves with cardamom for a twist on the original recipe! (3 July 09) **

      These are so good! I used honey and semi-sweet chips since I'm not vegan myself. But I loved the healthiness of these (I used white wheat flour). The kids loved them too, which is always a bit of a challenge with stuff that is not loaded with butter. Thanks!

      Made this recipe as written & used some homemade applesauce in it! Makes for VERY, VERY NICE TASTING COOKIES! Most of them went off with my other half to share at his work, but I managed to keep hold of 10 or so just for myself! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

      Yummy, I loved it. I used only a touch of agave because my bananas were so ripe and sweet. Also used 1 egg and blended the oatmeal to a oat flour. But I used organic all purpose flour instead of whole wheat. Also used regular old toll house chocolate chips. Baked in a stoneware 10 1/2 by 15 shallow pan, like a cookie bar, but they turned out very cake-like and chewy. I gave some to my kid's teacher and she claimed to like them too. I think when you leave out the oil, it's going to taste more cake-like than cookie like. DH was disappointed because I told him I was making choc. chip cookies and he didn't like the chewy, cake like texture.
