It's a shame you can't smell or taste via a computer, so that means you simply have to bake them yourself!

    1. Hi there, creaming is the method used when you add sugar and butter and using an electric mixer (or a wooden spoon), you beat until the mixture becomes pale in color and turns a fluffy texture. Hope that helps!

  1. I just made them and they tasted great. My oven must be way to hot cause every bottom was too brown for my liking. Next time I will lower the test and use parchment paper, was looking for a tasty cookie to make for the homeless. I will try to add other ingredients as well, the first time round I stick to the recipe.

    1. Hi Brenda, yes, the ovens can vary so much, but at least you know how to fix that for next time. We have had a few people adding some extra goodies to the cookies if you have time to read some of the comments below. There’s some lovely idea for mixing these up a bit!
      Thanks for writing in and glad you liked the recipe.

    1. Hi there, instructions 2 and 3 are combined in the same bowl, then the ingredients you added in instruction 1, you need to put them in the bowl you added the butter, banana and eggs to. Instruction 1 is all the dry ingredients listed in the recipe. Hope that helps!

  2. I made these today and they were delicious. I added chopped pecans to my batter. I actually missed putting the cinnamon in the dough. I sprinkled with cinnamon sugar on the top of the first batch and they were yummy. The second tray of cookies went in without the cinnamon and sugar by mistake. After they began to bake I remembered it and pulled them out and sprinkled a lot of the cinnamon and sugar on top and put them back in the oven to finish baking. That tray of cookies was the best :-) thanks for a great recipe and a terrific way to use those right bananas.

    1. Hi Anusha, I haven’t tried any substitution in the recipe so I’m afraid I can’t advise on using coconut oil. If you do try it, please do let us know incase others ask too!

  3. I’m inspired. I baked them today. Recipe was simple. They turned out good! Not as round as would have liked, but tasty!
    Thanks for the recipe!

  4. They look very nice I wil make this weekend I also use bananas and make little cakes is a recipe from my dear +mom.. First you peel 3 bananas and mash them and put sugar and vanilla and then in the mixer add one egg..Mix again and at last the flour with cinammon, when all is well mixed take portions and fry in hot oil..When they are brown you take from the pan and put sugar over. Sorry my english explaining recipes.I hope you like this. Now I have cookies of bananas this is amazing,,,

    1. Hi Sandy, glad you were inspired! I’d love it if you linked up to us in your recipe rather than a mention because that will help your readers find the recipe you refer to in your post.
