This cookie has a nice flavor, but the texture is too much like bread. When I was mixing up the batter, it seemed too runny. I was afraid that the cookies would not turn out, but they did. If you like banana nut bread and want to try something a little different, this will fit the bill.



These cookies are delicious - exactly what I expected. I used the ingredients exactly as stated in the recipe, but mixed it differently, as I would any cookie recipe. I combined the wet ingredients first, stirred together the dry ingredients and mixed gradually into the wet. These are cakey cookies. Watch the baking time. I use airbake cookie sheets with parchment paper and usually have to add about two minutes to my baking time, but not with these. I used a 1 TBS cookie scoop and made 44 cookies which baked for ten minutes. I used my own butter frosting recipe rather than the one from this site (tinted just slightly yellow and sprinkled with toasted walnuts.) Try toasting the walnuts before adding to the batter. Place walnut halves on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes stirring every 4 minutes or so. Allow to cool, then coarsely chop. The flavor of the nuts is really enhanced. Thanks for a great way to use up ripe bananas.



Everyone loved the cookies and could not stop eating them. They were great!!
