    This makes an excellent cookie. My mother used to make a cookie like this when I was a little girl. I can't remember if her's was as cake like but I think it was close. Either way, we really love these. I did a few things different. I replaced over half of the butter with applesauce and I used brown sugar as well as white and added in some walnuts for crunch. I think the applesauce, oatmeal, and bananas makes it a good cookie to give children. It's a little healthier than your normal chocolate chip cookie! Thanks Jenny!  -  25 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I revised the receipe. Instead of chocolate chips I have used dried cranberries and dried blueberries. Everyone loves the cookies. Another thing I have learned is cook all of your cookies on parchment paper and never melt your butter in the microwave.  -  28 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    When I made these cookies I used 1/4 tsp nutmeg in place of the cloves. I kept the cinnamon the same amount. It turned out great, they are moist chewy cookies. I took them to work and they were gone. I've had several requests for this recipe.  -  16 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
