Super moist and tasted just like banana bread. I did chill the dough for about 30 mins to keep the cookies from spreading too much - this made them nice and thick. Also, I felt they did need either raisins or nuts. Using a level 1 1/2 Tbsp scoop, recipe made 36 cookies and cooked in 9 minutes. Yum1Reply
I have made this recipe five times each time doing it slightly different. Great for using overripe bananas. Follow the recipe especially combining the first 6 ingredients in a bowl. I increased the nutmeg and cinnamon to double each. I also increased the oatmeal to 2 cups. I am a Home Economist Food prep. teacher and Nutritionist and love to cook and experiment. My family loves this recipe slightly changed from the original. Happy Baking!1Reply
