This makes an excellent cookie. My mother used to make a cookie like this when I was a little girl. I can't remember if her's was as cake like but I think it was close. Either way, we really love these. I did a few things different. I replaced over half of the butter with applesauce and I used brown sugar as well as white and added in some walnuts for crunch. I think the applesauce, oatmeal, and bananas makes it a good cookie to give children. It's a little healthier than your normal chocolate chip cookie! Thanks Jenny!

I know most banana cookies are cake like--thats the part of the recipe we liked. We didn't care for the way the spices tasted with the chocolate chips--maybe too much ground clove?? I may try this again and decrease the clove, increase the cinnamon and maybe add some nutmeg.

I revised the receipe. Instead of chocolate chips I have used dried cranberries and dried blueberries. Everyone loves the cookies. Another thing I have learned is cook all of your cookies on parchment paper and never melt your butter in the microwave.

When I made these cookies I used 1/4 tsp nutmeg in place of the cloves. I kept the cinnamon the same amount. It turned out great, they are moist chewy cookies. I took them to work and they were gone. I've had several requests for this recipe.

Yum! My family gobbled these up. I will make two changes next time: only 1/2 tsp. of cloves, and I will change the sugar to 3/4 white and 1/4 brown. They also freeze very well!

Pretty darn good! I only used 2 bananas and added about 3/4 raisins instead and they worked and tasted GREAT! Kevy

Huh? I don't know what recipe some of these guys followed...these cookies are yummy! I always add more spices than recipes call for, and since we're at a higher altitude I have to add more flour/oatmeal, but these are really good, moist, and flavorful. A nice change. Thanks for sharing it.

These cookies were great. Not bland at all. Healthier than your average cookie and the kids ( 1 & 3 ) loved them! Could use a little more sugar (but I like them the way they are) probably just a 1/4 cup more.
