  • “These were ok, I wasn’t expecting a cake type cookie.The batter was very loose, so I put it in the fridge for a half hour.The cooking time was about 8 mins, but you had to watch them closely.Once out of the oven the texture was crispy with a soft center which was pleasing, but shortly thereafter they lost the crispiness, and just became a soft cake like cookie.The flavour was good.
    Hubby likes them, but they’re not for me.Thanks for posting. (I’ve added a picture)”

  • “These are so easy to make and are wonderful.Thanks.”

  • “These win points for being very quick and easy and kid friendly.I used half whole wheat and half white flour.I also found the cooking time to be a bit long and had them in for 7 minutesThe bottoms were very brown the middles mushy, so I may have needed to make them a bit smaller.Also, I garnished each cookie with a slice of banana which was nice.”

  • “these are delicious. I added 2 tsp cinnamon to the batter for a tastier flavor & still sprinkled the tops w/ cinnamon sugar. Yum! Also, baking time for me was only 6 minutes. Thank you! “
