This recipe goes from "pretty good" to "absolutely phenomenal" with a few simple changes. 1. Extra spices - I used 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice. 2. An extra banana. 3. Nuts (I used walnuts) and raisins. Those are probably the 3 most important changes I made, but I also used 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour and used 50% lighter butter instead of shortening. Oh, and added a capful of vanilla extract. These are absolutely to die for!!! Also used only 3/4 c. sugar, 1/4 c. of which was actually Splenda...still found them very sweet and didn't notice the splenda.


Great recipe!!! I tweeked the original a little bit just for fun and they came out great! I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose and instead of shortening, I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup of Smart Start butter spread. I thought the batter was rather dry so I added a second banana and then 2/3 of a cup of dried cranberry's. I calculated the total calories which came out to 3,330 for the entire batch and 121.75g fat. I yielded 50 cookies so that came to 67 cal's per cookie and 2.4g fat! Thanks for a great cookie :o)


These cookies are so easy to make and absolutely wonderful! The spices and banana mix well to create a great flavor. I made one batch to take to work. They were snatched up so fast I made another batch that night to take in the next day. A great way to use ripe bananas that you have on hand. I will definitely make this again.
