These cookies are awesome. Soft, chewy and tons of delicious banana flavor. Because of previous reviews concerning cooking time and temperature, I baked them at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. They came out perfect. Thanks for a new great way to utilize over-ripened bananas. I got 31 jumbo sized cookies from this recipe.



Good recipe! My kids loved them.

These cookies are very good even without the frosting. Tastes like banana bread, only in cookie form. Exactly what I was looking for.
