These turned out fantastic. I didn't have any over ripe bananas on hand so I roasted my yellow one at 325 for 20 minutes. It REALLY ups the sweetness and banana flavor! I used oat bran instead of wheat and added chocolate chips because my son has an egg allergy. This is definitely a keeper. Thank you!

I made a small change. Instead of WW flour I used a 1/2 cup mix of Salba and ground flax seed. I enjoyed them. Thanks for posting this recipe, Engineer in the Kitchen
