These cookies are fantastic especially if you like a bit of everything. The banana peanut butter oatmeal and of course chocolate chips blend together perfectly for a truly delicious cookie. Better than a traditional banana cookie in that they have a much nicer texture. Read More

I don't usually like to give a review unless it's positive but these cookies were very disappointing. I expected more from a "five star" cookie. They were flat and difficult to remove from the pan even with the addition of extra flour. I posted this only so someone else might save their ingredients for a more worthy recipe. Read More

The dough was VERY moist. Instead of adding more flour as noted in other reviews I added another 1/4 cup of oats. (I used the quick cook oats.) These cookies DO stick to the pan but with more oats they can be removed much easier. The chocolate chips are awful in this recipe and I love chocolate so leave out the chips!! I also sprinkled some of mine with a cinnamon/nutmeg mixture and they ended up with a snickerdoodle type taste. Read More

These cookies were great! All the flavors blended together nicely. They were perfectly chewy and crispy. I added about a half cup more oatmeal and used a whole banana. Really should give this recipe a try. You'll love it! Read More

Not sure on why so many people thought that this was a 5 star recipe. My family who loves banana's and P.B. thought that these were the worst cookies I have ever made for them. I ended up adding more flour and oatmeal almost 1 cup extra. The flavor was not the best. Over all not that great of a cookie. I have to agree with some of the other reviews don't waste your ingredients. Sorry. Read More

I have made these cookies twice now. I used Splenda sweetener baking mix (1/2 & 1/2 sugar & splenda???) both times. I also used half milk chocolate chips and half cinnamon chips. These are my favorite cookie - the only thing I will change next time is to add a teaspoon of salt because they are very sweet. Easy and good. Read More

My family loves these!!!!!! The only thing I have had to do is work with the cooking times. I have been cooking them for 15 minutes then letting them finish on the cookie sheet before removing to a cooling rack. I have left the recipe alone I have not needed to change anything about it. Read More

I made these cookies today for a church bake sale and I think they came out very good. My children taste tested them and all 3 said YUM. I did add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup more oatmeal then the recipe called for b/c it seemed too soft but otherwise very good!! Read More
