Tried these to use up some very ripe bananas and am tired of banana bread. Used three medium bananas and 1 cup mini dark chocolate chips. I found I had to chill the dough between batches. A very soft, moist cookie -- best to layer with waxed paper as the tops get sticky. I also got 4.5 dozen cookies using my cookie scoop -- bake time for me was 9 minutes per batch.
Yummy and GREAT! Highly recommended, thanks so much for sharing.
I made these cookies exactly as per the recipe, but doubled it, and added a bag of chocolate chips. It made almost 8 dozen large cookies. They were good, but tasted less of banana that I would have liked. I agree with other reviewers in that they were somewhat cakey, but sort of crispy on the outside. I baked them on parchment paper for 12 minutes, and they came out nicely browned on the bottoms. The grandkids loved them. :-)
We really did not like these that much. We thought the flavor was pretty disappointing. If it wasn't for the chocolate chips in them I don; think they would even get eaten.
This is such a better way way to use up old bananas.I don't like banana bread so I thought I'd try these instead.They are nice and moist and quite tasty.I used half whole what flour and half all purpose.Turned out great!
I love this cookie!! I added M&M's instead of chocolate chips and I used a small scooper and found they made over 4 dozen and only needed about 8 minutes.
Really good. I used 3/4 c. M&Ms, natural chunky PB, and cut the banana in chunks and added them last. They did have a surprising but good cakey texture. Would try cutting down the sugar in the future to make them a little less sinful.
Would you mind if I posted this on my blog?
What a great cookie! It has a crunchy outside and cakey inside. It has a lot of versatility in that you can add raisins, add spices (cinnamon, cloves, ginger, pumpkin spice) and I topped mine with walnuts. This were easy to make and great to eat! To lower the fat, use egg substitute, cut the sugar, use applesauce.
These were delicious! They were more like a cake texture to me than cookie but still good. I used natural peanut butter and half whole wheat flour half white. Will definitely make these again!
