While looking for a chocolate chip cookie that was a little different, I came up with this version. The result is a cake-like cookie that stands out from the rest. It's a great way to use up those ripe bananas. —JoAnne Wempe, Seneca, Kansas

"Horrible! I knew it was going to be way too much flour and i should have gone with my instincts. They were like dry biscuits. Wasted all those ingredients plus my time making these."
