    These cookies are a nice change of pace from the usual chocolate chip cookies. They have extra sweetness from the ripe banana and milk chocolate chips.

    This tastes amazing if you add a package of fat-free instant vanilla pudding with the dry ingredients. The pudding really brings out the banana flavour. I give it one star without the pudding, 5 stars with it!  -  17 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    They came out great! The only things I did different was to use half brown sugar half white instead of using the called for all white sugar and change the baking time to 10 mins. My cookies where burned at the bottom at 13 mins. My family ate them up!  -  27 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    i make these all of the time. i originally got the recipe from granmas secrets... i use white chocolate chips instead, and i use powdwered sugar instead of white sugar... they are very cake like and taste best warm. i also bake mine on wax paper the original recipe i had said to move the wax paper to the counter (from the pan) and allow them to cool for 2 minutes before removing them from the wax paper onto a wire rack. and i only cook mine 7-9 minutes so they dont dry out. i love them and they are a huge hit!! i am making them in a few minutes for a birthday party this afternoon  -  08 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
