Interesting. I bet the bananas also help keep it moist without adding more fats to the recipe.

You know how much I love cookies, so I would love a couple of these warm out of the oven! btw, those were my nieces and nephews, not my kids in my post. I'm only 25, so that would make me 15 if they were mine :)

For a first time baker do you have any more accurate measurements? I just don't want to get them wrong and a cup could be any size!!!
Thanks :-D

pegasuslegend said...

hi natasha.... a cup is 8oz....hope that helps :)

Natasha said...

Thanks for that :-D
I tried making these this afternoon and was hmmmmmm semi successful?! The flavour is delicious but I obviously went wrong somewhere along the way as the consistency is more like a soft cake than a cookie!!!
