These cookies are delicious! They end up soft and slightly cakey - really tasty. Instead of plain chocolate I used a bar of plain (or milk) chocolate that had hazelnuts through it and this worked really well! - 20 Mar 2014
This makes an excellent cookie. My mother used to make a cookie like this when I was a little girl. I can't remember if her's was as cake like but I think it was close. Either way, we really love these. I did a few things different. I replaced over half of the butter with applesauce and I used brown sugar as well as white and added in some walnuts for crunch. I think the applesauce, oatmeal, and bananas makes it a good cookie to give children. It's a little healthier than your normal chocolate chip cookie!

I revised the receipe. Instead of chocolate chips I have used dried cranberries and dried blueberries. Everyone loves the cookies. Another thing I have learned is cook all of your cookies on parchment paper and never melt your butter in the microwave. - 28 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
