These cookies are nice change of pace from the regular chocolate chip cookie. They have extra sweetness form the ripe banana and milk chocolate chips.

They came out great! The only things I did different was to use half brown sugar half white instead of using the called for all white sugar and change the baking time to 10 mins. My cookies where burned at the bottom at 13 mins. My family ate them up! Read More

This tastes amazing if you add a package of fat-free instant vanilla pudding with the dry ingredients. The pudding really brings out the banana flavour. I give it one star without the pudding 5 stars with it! Read More

i make these all of the time. i originally got the recipe from granmas secrets... i use white chocolate chips instead, and i use powdwered sugar instead of white sugar... they are very cake like and taste best warm. i also bake mine on wax paper the original recipe i had said to move the wax paper to the counter (from the pan) and allow them to cool for 2 minutes before removing them from the wax paper onto a wire rack. and i only cook mine 7-9 minutes so they dont dry out. i love them and they are a huge hit!! i am making them in a few minutes for a birthday party this afternoon Read More

Very delicious recipe! Just like eating little mini-loaves of banana bread. My husband simply loved them to take as a quick breakfast on the way to work. Read More

This recipe is great. Why? Because it gets rid of that 1 ripe banana. Most banana bread and muffin recipes calls for 3 ripe ones so this is perfect when you have just one and don't want to toss it away. Made the recipe exactly as written; no changes. The recipe is just what the title says. They are a nice soft cake-like cookie. Nice for a change of pace too. Giving away to the neighbors for a nice sunday morning treat. They are not overly sweet and would be a good 'breakfast' cookie. Read More

Very quick and easy however the cookies taste like something is missing and leave a flour taste in your mouth. They might taste better if you adjust the ingredients so they similar to the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag. Read More

I added an extra banana, pecans, and chocolate chips. The texture is strange but I liked it. :) Read More

I enjoyed these immediately after they had cooled but the consistency had completely changed by the next day. They were soggy and gross. Not a great cookie but I was looking for a recipe with fewer calories. Read More
