“I love this recipe! I've been making it forever and finally have taken time to post it. It's nice to have another option for using up those over-ripe bananas. If I don't have time to actually make the cookies, I'll mash the bananas up in a tupperware and throw them in the freezer for later. ** Updated to be a vegan recipe. Also, I'd recommend replacing the cloves with cardamom for a twist on the original recipe! (3 July 09) **”
