Yummy cookies!! Great when you have leftover bananas that are too soft to eat .. they smell heavenly while baking, and keep well in the fridge ... I don't add the nuts, but you can if you like ..

    These cookies turned out to be very dense for me . . . probably because I do not measure as exact as I should. However, they are delicious as is and will freeze well to make breakfast cookies.

    Great recipe - used pecan nuts as they're great with bananas! Discovered I'd run out of dates so used dried cranberries. Thanks Najwa! Update: this time I used dates and macademia nuts, made 25 & sold all of them in aid of a charity. Brilliant recipe!!

    Excellent cookie. Will definately make again. The banana, oats, dates and nuts make it a really nutritious treat. Used pecans and double the cinnamon. Made 3 dozen smaller cookies. Thanks for sharing.

    Fabulous!! These were exactly what i was looking for. They are tender and the perfect consistency. I used butter flavored crisco and creamed that with the sugar til fluffy before adding the eggs. I also combined all the dry before adding, finally stirring in 1 3/4 cup oatmeal and probably 2/3 cup of chopped pecans and a generous cup of dates. These would be good with a dab of chocolate frosting...although i'll leave them alone...this time! These will be added to my fav's list - thanks!

    These were far tastier than I had hoped for! I used two mushed bananas, more like 1 3/4 cup oatmeal, and a little less sugar than called for. They came out fantastic, rather like little bites of banana nut muffins!
