MY REVIEW

"Your banana lovers will eat these up! Easy and quick to pull together. My kids love them so much I also make them into mini-muffins. Use the cookie scoop and put the dough into greased mini muffin tins. Bake them the same as cookie directions. They pop out easy and ready to go. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I love recipes that use classic ingredients and our well loved."

"Absolutely phenomenal! They are so light and pillowy, I think they would make wonderful whoopie pies! The only thing I did different was using half a cup of mini chocolate chips, and it was more than enough."

"we loved these cookies only thing that I did not like was that the moisture the cookies has made me to worried to keep them in a bag outside the fridge. I felt I had to keep them in the fridge to keep from going bad and sticking to eachother."

"I just baked these. I was surprised that it came out super soft, like a cake or muffin. I guess I've never had cookies this soft. I loved them, but my husband did not care for them. He likes hard cookies. Next time I will use 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips instead of 1 cup. The 1 cup of chocolate chips made it very overpowering. I may even try to use banana extract instead of vanilla to give it an extra banana flavor. You don't taste the banana flavor, but there is a slight banana aroma. Also I think these would work better as mini muffins instead of cookies. Everything about it just screams muffin, not cookie."

"super good and super easy! i added some cinnamon but to be honest I can't even tell. Texture is cakey, which goes well with the banana flavor. Will definitely make again!"
