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.

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. :-)
