"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."

"I used Cadbury milk chocolate chips, which only come in 200g packaging, so a little less than 1 cup, and I didn't bother with baking soda and baking powder, instead just using self-raising flour, and they were phenomenal.

I sent them off with my boyfriend to his workplace and the boys devoured them!"

"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."
