These are great! They are better once fully cooled, just like regular peanut butter cookies. I would advise leaving the batter to sit for a moment before dropping onto the baking sheets, for some reason they didn’t spread as much after the batter had been out a while. The batter is so good by itself that I would probably prefer to eat it without baking it as a kind of mousse, so there are lots of possibilities with this base recipe.
Texture and consistency is good but a bit bitter, I think it needs some stevia or something else to sweeten it a bit but I’d definitely make them again and adapt, easy to do in food processor and you can amend ingredients. Great low carb treat, and really filling!

Really good and delish! The almond butter I used is an extremely bitter kind, so I added 1/4 cup of honey, a tsp of vanilla and some cinnamon and they turned out great!
after reading reviews prior to making, i added sugar free syrup. second batch i added raisins to add sweetness. next time ill add nuts as well. great base to work from. so simple to make!

Very nice (but I have to admit I added some sugar as well)
They were nice and cake like but not sweet enough to quench that sweet craving will alter it next time to see if I can make something tasty and sweet
Super good! I was skeptical based on some of the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised! I will make again!!
Perfect base recipe to add extras like chocolate chips, nuts/seeds, or coconut! I will definitely make these again!

Tasted awful. Definitely needs some sugar or something... even as a healthy cookie tastes really bad

I’m terrible at cooking and baking but this recipe is so easy and delicious! I will definitely use it again

Pretty good! They turned out more fudgy than I expected. Could use a little more flavor but overall a good quick and easy recipe.

Really good! I would make it again and I didn't add anything.

This recipe has so much potential! I gave it a 3 because these cookies are almost tasteless, lack the flavor you'd expect when eating a cookie. Because I am not following any paleo/ vegan diet, I decided to try another batch however this time with a couple extra ingredients. I added a few pinches of superfine sugar and a small handful of milk chocolate chips to the mix. Voíla!! They came out delicious and I love the chewy texture. Next time, I'm adding toasted coconut.

Amazing! I make them all the time. They are a great snack or dessert for a few people. They are so fudgey I forget that they are actually good for me!

Tasty....used my blender for a perfect smooth texture. My husband said it could use a little pop, so next time we'll throw in some dark chocolate chips. They carbed my sweet tooth cravings😍

Made with sunbutter instead of peanut butter, and used defrosted frozen bananas rather than fresh overripe bananas. Had to add some extra cocoa powder. Forgot the salt too. My very picky eater loved them. Would definitely make again.

Delicious! Would one hundred percent make them again. My roommate said 'if heaven has a smell it would smell like those cookies.'

I didn't like them with the salt on top. Sprinkled a little sugar instead & they were really good-like brownies
Peggy B. 21 Jul 2016
Delicious! And, so easy to make. Nice to have another way to use up those over ripe bananas. The whole family liked them so I will definitely make them again.
Joanne G. 21 Jul 2016
Fantastic, especially with pinch of sea salt on top. Never would have thought it would hold together, but it did! REally chocalatety, without the sugar. Will definitely recommend to my gluten free friends.

Well It was easy to make I used dark chocolate coca powder instead of regular chocolate powder. I did mine in a pie container made it like a bar cookie. Baking time was a little longer but they turned out alright. didn't use the salt. The taste wasn't what I thought it would be. I like my chocolate a bit sweeter. They are alright but I wouldn't make them a lot. I'll stick to my chocolate banana fudge.

The best no added sugar sweets I've tried! They taste decadent, and I suppose they are somewhat calorically rich, but I can't feel too wrong about sticking a couple bites of banana, unsweetened natural peanut butter, and cocoa powder in my mouth. (I did add the salt, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary and may try going without next time.) I made 1/3 batch, and because they're so packed with flavor, I think they'll last at least 3 days just covering my personal chocolate cravings. It's funny these were dreamt up post holiday season because I think they'd make the perfect gift for a loved one with a sweet tooth when presented in a cute tin or box. I just started eating clean again myself, and these cookies have definitely warded off the unhealthy baked goods and ice cream fantasies I've been dodging. Thank you! P.S. I dropped the somewhat wet (resembled other drop cookies') dough onto my sheet, and it did require some flattening. I noticed when they were almost finished baking and did what I had to do. Things turned out great, but I would have had truffles if I hadn't noticed before the exterior had set.

Since I'm allergic to nuts I substituted peanut butter with soy butter as I do with other recipes I find for peanut butter. These turned out great 🤗

Swap out the cocoa powder for oatmeal and they make irresistible dog cookies, too (I added shredded coconut and chocolate chips to half the batch for people cookies). Great way to use up aging bananas without having to make 18 tins of banana bread.

Cookies have always been my weakness. Now I can have my cookies and my slim waistline too! Delicious and so ridiculously easy!!

I found this recipe really easy to make and especially scrummy as I enjoy a strong flavour with a salty counterpart. Definitely recommend.
