  1. The banana flavor in these is terrific.. the texture is quite soft. if you think if this as little banana bread bites rather than a cookie you'll get time will add a pinch of salt and some vanilla extract
  2. I used 1/2 C. white and 1/2 C. brown sugar threw in an additional 1/2 C. semisweet chocolate chips cooked for 30 minutes in the 9x13 and voila! Banana bread. Because that's what this is.
  3. Wow! These are surprisingly tasty! I was pretty skeptical of this recipe but since I had some bananas that needed used up I thought I'd make these for my marathon-running husband to snack on after his training runs. However now that I've tried one I just hope he gets home quickly or there won't be - Read more ...
  4. I was wondering why no-one had posted a picture of this, and now I know why. It isn't the most attractive recipe. I think it would look better baked in a pan and cut into bars. Very tasty though. Mine were finished before I remembered that I had wanted to post a picture!

  8. I am also attending university and was looking for a snack to munch on while studying. This met all my expectations. I followed the advice of another review and added some vanilla extract and a little more flour. I also omitted about 1/4 cup of butter. I didn't have enough walnuts or any raisins but - Read more ...
  9. Very good. Omitted the nuts and the nice soft texture was perfect for kids with braces. I added almost 1/2 cup more flour to get a good "cookie" texture. Every one loved them even a picky eater who refuses to eat anything with oatmeal.
  10. My Husband and I both enjoyed these cookies and so did the men in his office. Many wanted the recipe for their own use. I did add a couple of things when I made them a little vanilla extract and a touch of salt and a little more sugar. I did try icing a few - Read more ...
