aspartame artificial sweetener

ripe bananas, mashed
Not a bad recipe, but was extremely similar to what I'd call banana bread. I was expecting more of a bar cookie texture. However, number of eggs needed was left off, so that may change the recipe. I used two.
Like the previous reviewer, I was also looking for a chewy cookie. Changes I made: 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar instead of the aspartame, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, and 1 cup bread flour instead of 2 cups all-purpose flour, cut down the baking powder to 1 tsp, the baking soda to 1/2 tsp, and the milk to 1/2 cup. Oh, and I added some walnuts and chocolate chips. Even with all those changes, the bars still had a cakey texture. Didn't taste like banana bread though!
I followed the directions precisely, except replacing the aspartame w/ 1 Tbsp brown sugar. Very yummy! My three-year-old loves it. It does taste a lot like banana bread, but that's fine with me because I really like banana bread :)
Pretty good, although I'd probably call it a banana cake or bars, but who cares what they are called if they taste good, right? :o) These are very moist, and dense, and not that different from banana bread in my opinion, but I've never had dry banana bread so maybe I'm in the minority here. I topped with a vanilla glaze I had in the fridge, and bf liked them but thought that a strawberry frosting would be better with them. I think some more spices, like cinnamon, would make the taste pop more too. He preferred the chocolate cake I made today, but well . . .it's chocolate, and he likes most things with chocolate better anyway. Thanks for the recipe!
I thought this was a great recipe, nice and moist easy to make but I added a hint of salt and a few shakes of cinnamon to the dry ingredients
didn't know how many eggs I had to use. I put three. It tastes good but it may be better with something sweeter on top.
Awesome!!! Great way to use up banana's, I mixed in mini chocolate chips :)
We're used to banana bread, this was a refreshing change. Not as strongly flavored, softer and very good.
