  8. Interesting. I bet the bananas also help keep it moist without adding more fats to the recipe.

    I tried making these this afternoon and was hmmmmmm semi successful?! The flavour is delicious but I obviously went wrong somewhere along the way as the consistency is more like a soft cake than a cookie!!!
