I've been baking lots of banana bread lately and while I love it, I wanted something different to do with my ripe bananas. Found this recipe and tweaked it some to make it mine. They have a very soft, cake-like texture. Enjoy!

These were a HUGE hit in the test kitchen. The flavors in these cookies are just right. I did add the chocolate chips and loved that addition. These are great, soft cookies. The Test Kitchen
