    I was excited to try these as I have been in need of a new way to use up those frozen bananas. When making them I thought 1tsp of salt was too much but added it anyway. Sadly, I was right and these leave a lingering salty after taste in your mouth. I will try again but will only use 1/2 tsp of salt instead. :)

    This cookie is excellent! It has a nice banana flavor, but not too overpowering. Super moist. Of course I added a little extra chocolate chips, yum! I am always looking for a creative way to use leftover bananas and this fits the bill! I got 24 cookies out of the batter instead of 16 and I used a tablespoon scooper.

    I made this for my nieces 3rd birthday party. I also put a 3rd banana and doubled the recipe. they were excellent! I baked them on a pizza stone, which is nice for texture and speed. I definitely recommend this recipe.

    These are great. I doubled the recipe, and also added a 3rd banana (depends how much flavor you want/how big your bananas are). Finally, added a teaspoon of Cinnamon for a tiny bit of spice.

    OMG this was delicious! VERY "CAKE" like! LIght, fluffy and NOT too sweet! I made one batch (and I'm NOT a "baker") and decided to make another batch since I still have banana's left! YUM. Will share it with my "BAKER" friend Lisa! T.Y.

    Delicious! I made these cookies just as the recipe called for and they turned out great. Will make these cookies again soon. Everyone loved them.
