Like the previous reviewer, I was also looking for a chewy cookie. Changes I made: 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar instead of the aspartame, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, and 1 cup bread flour instead of 2 cups all-purpose flour, cut down the baking powder to 1 tsp, the baking soda to 1/2 tsp, and the milk to 1/2 cup. Oh, and I added some walnuts and chocolate chips. Even with all those changes, the bars still had a cakey texture. Didn't taste like banana bread though!


Not a bad recipe, but was extremely similar to what I'd call banana bread. I was expecting more of a bar cookie texture. However, number of eggs needed was left off, so that may change the recipe. I used two.


I followed the directions precisely, except replacing the aspartame w/ 1 Tbsp brown sugar. Very yummy! My three-year-old loves it. It does taste a lot like banana bread, but that's fine with me because I really like banana bread :)
