"This is a delicious cookie recipe. Kids love it. AND....for those with allergies, it's egg-free. I like to make it with PB chips, but it's great with chocolate chips or a combo of both!"
Serving Size: 1 (40 g)

"Wow! These are great! I love banana bread so I thought I'd try these. DH (said don't loose the recipe) and kids loved them. For my oldest it was an adventure, but he loved them as well. I used a combo of chocolate and peanut butter chips (you can buy them that way), followed the recipe as is. This is definately a keeper! Thanks for posting!!"
"YUM! YUM! Best cookies I have ever made!! Made mine nice small so just a mouthful!"
"Very good cookie! The only changes I made were to sub. 3/4 c. agave nectar for the sugar. (Doc wants me off sugar!) These have become a favorite for my DH and I! I use peanut butter chips (less than called for because of the sugar). I keep a few out to nibble on right away and freeze the rest. On Sunday mornings, while our tea is brewing, I grab a few out of the freezer bag and microwave them for about 30 - 45 seconds. We eat these in the car on our drive to church. Yumm!"
"Awesome biscuits! I didn't add any Chocolate chips and I added 250g of butter and used two large bananas (it was a con-joined banana). I used teaspoonfuls, then flattened the dough, and baked them at 200 C for 20 minutes - turning tray at 10 mins, then checking for browning from 15 mins onwards. My oven doesn't hold heat very well, so 180 C should be suffice if you use a modified recipe as I did. I have frozen 2 logs frozen ready for any guests popping by! They are SO MORISH! Well done! I can't wait to try them again and follow the recipe to the letter."
"I needed a nut-free and egg-free recipe for a birthday treat for my daughter's class, so I decided to try these. They're similar in texture to shortbread, but not quite as crumbly. I liked that the banana flavor was not super strong, but it was definitely there. I don't think it's easier than banana bread, as OrangeOctober had said, but that's just because you have to scoop out all those individual cookies. But definitely easy, for cookies! I tripled the batch and froze some dough - one log to try slicing, and another bunch just lumped into a container. I'll try to report back how those versions work out. Thanks for posting!"
"Easy recipe. Taste great!! And good texture. These are a definte addition to my cookbook! I substituted 1/4 cup brown sugar and added a pinch of cinnamon to the base dough. Then separated to make plain, chocolate chip (rich and wonderful), and peanut butter (heaping tablespoon + of organic crunchy.)"
"Made these instead of banana bread; faster, easier, & sensational!! These baked up perfectly, with just the right amount of sweetness...great texture, too. This is a fantastic recipe!! Thanks"
"This is one of the best recipes I have ever tried off a website! Very easy to make (I reduce sugar to 3/4 cup) and they come out soft and chocolatey! These are a staple in my recipe book!"
"easy to make and delicious! Will make again for sure."
"I used 3/4 cup sugar and for me that was too much. The cookies are too sweet. But anyway I still give this recipe 5 stars. Because I love the taste of banana and chocolate. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. And I used butter flavoring shortening. Thanks Parsley :) Made for Zaar Star Game."
"These were very good! I doubled the recipe and took them to a bake sale and they all sold! I left some here for the kids and I don't think that they made it 3 hours before they were gone...they liked them too! Thanks for posting!!"
"These got big yums all round. They smell like shortbread when they come out of the oven. I had a bit of a problem with them browning too fast on the bottom but that may be due to my new cookie sheet. They have a nice subtle banana taste and the milk choc. chips and peanut butter chips combo should not be missed! Wonderful recipe, thank you Parsley!"
"We love them.We didn't have any chocolate chips so we added cinnamon and it rocks just the same."
"I made these becuse I needed to make 5 dozen cookies for daycamp and had no eggs in the house. They smelled SO good while they were baking that I couldn't resist eating one as soon as they came out of the oven. Dh and both kids couldn't get enough of them. I have traded in my regular chocolata chip recipe for this one and have made it several times now. They don't last long in my house, but that's okay because they are so easy to make that I could make them every day. Thanks for a great recipe."
"These cookies look very nice, but I felt like I was biting into a stick of butter when I tried eating one. I don't think I'll make this again."
"Yum! I've made these twice now, the first time with semi-sweet chips which was quite good, the second with a combo of peanut butter and milk chocolate chips which is to die for! A great cookie, similar to a butter cookie but more tender and flavorful with the addition of a banana. Not cakelike like most banana cookie and bar recipes. Thanks, Parsley72, for sharing these yummy cookies!"
"These cookies are VERY yummy! My picky (egg allergic) chldren love them! The neighbors kids love them! Adults love them! They are easy to whip up (I have 3 kids - none are any taller than my knee) and I made these cookies in 10 minutes! They will become a staple in our house for sure! "
