Delicious easy recipe! Ihad one ripe banana and needed to use it. I substituted a mix of Swerve and Brown Coconut Sugar for the 1 cup of sugar and swapped the flour for almond meal cup for cup. Added dark cocoa chips and walnuts so yummy!

Yummy! I followed the recipe - I didn't measure, but used one mashed banana. I like the idea of using chopped walnuts or pecans. It is a cake like cookie - quite good still warm. I also appreciate this makes a rather small batch. I got 24 cookies.

Delicious, but I doubled the recipe and didn't get 36 and they were average sized cookies.

Outstanding, yummy soft cookies. Used parchment paper & a one tablespoon ice cream scoop so they don't spread and puffed up perfectly. Prefer chocolate chunks. For variety, try adding walnuts and 1/2 tsp each of cardamom & cinnamon.

Excellent recipe!! Soft and delicious, they are like little banana breads. I made a few substitutions; I used applesauce instead of butter, split the sugar to 1/4 white and 1/4 brown, an additional 1/4 tsp of baking powder, walnuts instead of chocolate chips and lastly added in another 1/3 cup of flour. The batter was definitely too runny without the extra flour, even still they looked like little banana puddles on the baking sheet before cooking. They did rise up in the oven though.
