    Very good recipe. I read the reviews first though and made the following changes - used only 1 teaspoon of baking powder and also split the 1 cup of white sugar to be 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I also used 1 1/2 cups of mashed bananas - 3 ripe bananas. These cookies were very moist, very cakelike and gone very quickly! Extra chocolate chips never hurt!  -  07 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I'm eating one of these fresh out of the oven as I type this..... These cookies are wonderful! My sister made cookies like these when I was little, but she doesn't remember making them anymore and I could never get the recpie from her. These are almost exactly them.... I made these with milk chocolate chips (compliments the banana very well), reduced the baking powder to 1 1/4 tsp, and used 3 (about 1 and 1/4 cups mashed) very ripe but NOT brown bananas... I couldn't wait for them to ripen that much The banana flavor is delicate, but definitely there.... I think those who want a more banana-y flavor may want to try replacing some of the vanilla with banana extract. The cookies do have a slightly "muffin-y" texture to them... but don't let that put you off of trying them. I've never had muffins as good as these cookies. (also, I baked these on parchment paper, and found they rounded themselves out reasonably well - better than it sounds like they did for other with just an ungreased pan)  -  13 Feb 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
