  • Beat the bananas using a mixer or whisk until smooth. Add in all of the other ingredients, mix well, and let sit for 20 minutes. Drop by the heaping teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. I use the silicon baking sheets (if you don't have one, they are worth every penny!).

    I believe the nay-sayers are missing an opportunity with these cookies. Staying as true to the intent of the recipe as possible, I add one teaspoon of Stevia or Xylotol and a 1/3 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I make about 18 per batch, rather than 21, and cook them for 13 minutes at 350 degrees. The resulting cookie has a brownie-like consistency and is just enough sweet to keep you out of the troublesome snack bin.

    I understand why this is a "skinny" recipe. You will not want anymore after the first bite.

    Nasty!!!!! Like eating a cocoa flavored Elmer's glue! Can't taste the peanut butter, vanilla or nothing. They just went in the garbage.

    Put some powdered sugar on top to try and help the taste but way too bitter! They looked so good.... too good to be true I guess. I reread the reciped 10 times to make sure I didn't do something wrong but... it was right. sorry.... these were aweful.

    For me, while not a great cookie, these were not as bad as some reviewers experienced. I did use unsweetened applesauce and Hershey's cocoa. They weren't bitter. I did use very ripe bananas and did really mix them up. I did taste banana and cocoa. They are better cold. Again, not truly awful, but probably not a cookie I will do again (though I'm not tossing the ones I have as they will give me that pop of something sweet if I need it).
