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

  1. My cookies didn’t look anything like yours! Drop cookies eh? Maybe I should have dropped them from a higher distance. They didn’t spread out at all. I baked half of them on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam, and baked the others on parchment paper. I put them in at the same time, and at 5 minutes the cinnamon sugar mixture that ended up on the sheet was burning, as was the bottom of the cookies. I am trying to figure out what to do with the parchment cooked ones to make them suitable for serving.

  2. My daughter is on a very strict diet that we can not use sugar, but I used honey as a substitute. Sweetened with a two large spoonful of honey (prob approx 2 TBSP) as a substitution and the cookies were still yummy and kid friendly!

    1. Yep, we are using GF rice flour and I also made a batch with a blend of GF rice flour, with a small amount of GF almond flour. (Proportion about 2/3 white flour to 1/3 almond flour).

  3. Hello from London Ontario Canada

  4. Loved, loved, loved these super soft Banana Cookies. We had to add a little extra flour probably because we had a little extra mashed bananas. I also added a little extra cinnamon which just made the all the better.

  5. I’m one that can’t follow recipe. I’m always outside the box to create.
    These cookies are great with my added flare. It stared when my son made a banana sandwich with Nutella. I started with this recipe and the changed the following: So I used 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 3/4 sugar vs all white sugar, this adds more chew to cookie. Then I mixed in two rounded tablespoons of Nutella. I did not add cinnonmon suger on top. I did add 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in mix.

  6. My mom use to make something like this but there were with pineapple. Can I use pineapple, if so what portion should I use? Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Rene, your pineapple ones sound absolutely delicious! I’m afraid I wouldn’t know where to begin with advising you on quantities because I’ve never made them using pineapple. I guess if you wanted to ‘experiment’, you could try the same weight as the banana in the recipe, but make sure you drain the pineapple well as there might be too much liquid, and I would use crushed or pureed pineapple. If you do make them, please do pop back and let me know. I’m very curious and it really does sound delicious!
