Do I add the choc chips and oats after the bananas? The batter smells absolutely divine even before adding the bananas… 🙂

my hubby and I loved these cookies but I ended up baking the second batch in mini muffin trays as found the consistency of the cookies very much like banana bread. I was hoping to use these in lunch box but they were so good that hubby finished them up for dessert

that’s a clever idea Brea, yes it was a very soft cookie, ooh so yummy!

Hi Katrina,
Just have some cookies in the oven now. Did you realise that there is a small error in the recipe? You forgot to add the rolled oats and choc chips? Also is it 1 egg or 2. You’ve said one in the list of ingredients but then used eggS in the instructions?? I ended up using two. We’ll see how they go when they come out?
Also are they suitable for the freezer?
Thanks.

Made these yesterday and that’s how long they lasted… not even 24 hours. Mind you I donated quite a few to the pre primary teachers.

Hi Katrina,

I want to make these for school, but was informed by one of my children there are two children in class with a severe egg allergy. Any alternates around the egg/s?

Thank you! 🙂

Hi Cat, ooh no that would make packing lunches difficult, you may find this post helpful, ‘Egg free recipes’: https://theorganisedhousewife.com.au/recipes/egg-free/egg-free-recipes/

Mmmm, just made a batch of these, gluten free! (I’m a coeliac) I simply subbed gluten free flour, and replaced the oats with quinoa flakes, as they are a moist cookie, it worked really well as they’re crunchy outside, soft inside, Delish! Thanks for the recipe!

Reply
Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 4, 2016 - 9:21 PM

That is wonderful Leanne, thank you so much for helping to make this a gluten free recipe, many ask how to make my recipes gluten free and I am unsure so I appreciate this 😉

My 5yo son and I just made these as a school holiday activity and it was also my first time sharing my kitchen with him. We had a ball! Very easy recipe to get kids involved in and they are DELICIOUS. Our house smells amazing, so much so that our neighbours decided to pop in from the smell wafting over the fence. Master 5 has decided they will be a lunchbox regular. Thank you so much 🙂
P.S. We also used extremely overripe bananas, so it made the biscuits extra moist.

Yay, cooking with the kids is so much fun and also creates some wonderful memories for them. Glad you enjoyed the recipe.

Yummy cookies but you seem to be missing the butter in the thermomix method. I didn’t realise until they were baking. Still nice though ?

Reply
Fion Sextob January 28, 2019 - 12:59 PM

Did anyone else notice that the butter was omitted from the method. It listed in the ingredients. I had just finished step 3 and then realised I had a pile of butter on the bench. I assume this should have been added with the sugar and egg at the beginning but it was too late. I added it anyway but cookies did not work out. A waste of ingredients. Please amend recipe.

Hi, can you freeze these?

Hi Karen (a bit late now but useful for anyone else wondering),
I have made these (and they are delicious – just like a banana muffin) and I froze them. Just took a couple out at a time and popped them in the lunchbox or bag and they defrosted perfectly!

Hi Kat,
We just love these biscuits. They are our families favourite as you can eat them fresh and they freeze really well. We take them on a weekend away or traveling because they are easy to make and keep well for a quick snack while traveling in the car or while camping. It’s a great recipe, easy to make and loved by all who visit us.
Thank you for sharing it Kat. Many thanks, Catherine 🙂
