Recipe by HEP MEP

I've had this recipe so long, I don't remember where it came from - either a magazine,or newspaper, but it is my daughter's favorite cookie to take to school for a birthday treat. They're really tasty,especially for banana lovers.

MEP! Delicious cookies! Easy to throw together, too. 400º sounded a bit high for cookies, but I followed the recipe. I did end up having to lower the heat to 375º first batch was over brown on the bottom. I threw in some chocolate chips and some coconut too. I will make these again for sure! Thanks for a tasty cookie! :)
