  1. These were not sweet at all. I didnt like them and will not be making them again.
  2. These cookies are nice and soft with a very mild banana flavour. I would prefer a stronger taste of banana. The chocolate chips overpowered the cookie in my opinion. My husband liked them just the way the are. I likely will try them again and add another banana to the mix. Nearly forgot, I ran out of flour so added about 1/4 cup of oatmeal and a tsp. of vanilla. Thanks for the recipe.
  3. Mmmmm, I love banana-flavored sweets. This produced a pleasant soft cookie. I left out the chocolate chips because I don't like them. I did like that the recipe didn't produce a jillion more cookies than I can eat at a time.
  4. Nice alternative to banana bread for making use of ripe bananas. I used butter rather than margarine, added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and skipped the optional chocolate chips. Also, I mixed in the bananas before adding the flour to avoid overmixing after the flour was added. I'm not sure what happened, but I did have to add extra flour, as the batter was too thin for cookie dough. I decided after I baked the first pan to sprinkle some turbinado sugar on the tops to add a little extra flavor and texture. (I pulled them out of the oven and added it about halfway through cook time, after they had spread, but before they completely set). We did like the ones with sugar on top best. I doubled the recipe and (using a tablespoon cookie scoop) ended up with 3 dozen cookies. Thanks for posting!
  5. This is a wonderful cookie! I'm going to use it on my Xmas tray. I added about 1/2 C chopped nuts because I like nuts. Sort of like a banana muffin.
