I had very ripe bananas that needed to be used on the counter so I looked up for a tasty easy recipe with bananas. Instinctively I would go for the usual banana bread but since I like to share it would be easier to bake something practical to give. These cookies are simply delicious. They are fluffy and looks like muffin top. WE all know that muffin tops are the best parts of the muffins! The taste is intense and very good.
