Questions, Comments & Reviews

Great change-up from my typical Oatmeal Chocolate Chip. I used 3 extra ripe bananas we had in the freezer, so the banana flavor was pretty good. These are very light and "cakey". When I made the bigger sized ones, my wife described them as muffin tops. I will make this for my annual Holiday Open House instead of my standard oatmeal chocolate chip.
