I can't even remember how much I adjusted this, but having this as a starting point was great. They turned out pretty tasty and the idea alone is worth four stars. My husband likened them to really good bread. Some people said scones, but after he said that I realized that they really do taste like a cakey banana bread. These are the switches I can remember (I know some of them add to the sugar content, but I just liked the idea that it was all fruit and no refined sugar or sweetener like honey or maple syrup): 1/2 C butter with 1 1/2 cup ground flax for the fat and what ended up being 1 cup of applesauce (1/2 initially & half when the batter was too thick from the flax) in place of the egg. I had read not to replace egg with applesauce in drop cookies because it would make them spread too much, so since I read they didn't spread at all, I thought I would use that flaw to my advantage--it didn't work. They still stayed the shape they were plopped in. I also ommited the walnuts and added a diced fresh peach (weird but good). Thanks for sharing; it was a fun experiment.
