banana, peeled and mashed
packed brown sugar
whole wheat flour
EXCELLENT!!I made some changes though. Read other reviews about dryness I think I solved that. First of all I used 3 very ripe bananas instead of 1 that increases moisture quite a bit. I heaped the peaunt butter I used 2 whole eggs instead of just the whites. Also I used 1 cup of the wheat flour and 1 heaping cup of the white flour. I added 1/2 tsp salt and skipped the raisins. They were cakelike but tons of PB and banana flavor, so good. And the oatmeal made them chewy. Also I cooked them at 350 for about 8-9 minutes but I have a hot oven you just gotta watch them and don't overcook. Thanks for a great recipe Gretchen!!:>)
I think this recipe had lots of potential but I really had to modify it to make it a five star. I used 2 bananas (really ripe) I used only 1/4 cup sugar (actually I used Splenda) and left the brown sugar at 1/2 cup. I used 2 whole eggs instead of just the whites. I only used 1 cup flour and used 2 cups of oats. I used 1 1/2 tsp baking soda. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla. I omitted the raisins. I baked mine at 350 for 9 minutes (using about 1 heaping TBSP of batter per cookie and flattening slightly). This higher heat/less time made the outside nice and crispy but the center was melt in your mouth! I think next time I would also add some chocolate chips.
So basically these cookies are amazing and delicious. For those who want a definite banana flavor to these, make sure you use a brown, overripe banana and you'll get the nice taste of it in the cookies. I did make some modifications, and they still came out excellent. First I cut back on the white sguar by 1/4 cup, added 1 t cinnamon, used chunky PB and left out the raisins entirely. I baked these at 325 for about 18 minutes and they were just perfect. With my modifications there are 114 calories/cookie with almost 3 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber. Super tasty, will make again and again.
This is an awesome recipie for using old bananas. I made a few changes and still the cookies turned out extremly well- I used 2 1/2 very ripe bananas,3/4 cup light brown sugar, only 1/4 cup of white sugar, (to give a chewy texture) 2 whole eggs, 1 1/2 cups self rising flour - I didn't have any other kind, 1 cup of instant oats and 1 cup of raisins... I mixed ingredients according to directions then put the dough into the refridgerator for 10 minutes to chill, used a silicone baking mat, then baked at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes. My cookies came out wonderfully and had a cake like texture but I didn't mind at all. Great recipie. Thanks.
these are my favorite healthy cookies and i make them all the time! i make some alterations: i cut back on the white sugar (only 1/4 cup) but keep the 1/2 cup brown sugar, and i use 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 2 cups of oats. this makes the cookies softer and more moist. if cookies don't flatten on their own, you can flatten with a fork before baking. they make a GREAT snack!!!
I had to omit, add and cheat a bit with this recipe, but it still turned out fantastic! I used two bananas, about a cup of peanut butter, two whole eggs and did not add in raisins because I was out. I love that these cookies are healthy, don't require any butter, so I feel a bit less guilty letting my girls, and myself, munch on a few at a time. I will definitely try to make this as written. =)
Yum! I love the consistency of these cookies - crispy/crusty on the outside and chewy inside. I used 3 bananas, which sweetened them enough where I can probably reduce the sugar next time. Beware if you increase the bananas, though - the peanut butter flavor won't come through as much. Adding some chopped peanuts might do the trick. Also, I subsituted Splenda for all of the sugar, added the yoke from one of the eggs, and added 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed. Half a cup of raisins was plenty, especially if you plump them first (I covered them with water and microwaved for 30 seconds). These could also use a pinch of salt but were fine without. Overall, these were a terrific, wholesome snack and were perfection with a glass of milk!
This is a VERY yummy cookie. I read through the other reviews and this was what I modified:
I used 2 eggs not just whites. I used 1cup wheat and 1cup all purpose flour. 1/2 tsp salt and 1 1/2 tsps soda. They are really chewy and delicious!
