  1. I made the banana peanut butter cookies and they were great! Few pointers:
    1. I used 3 medium sized bananas instead of 2 as we are not adding any sugar so I wanted them to be sweet
    2. I used creamy peanut butter (didn’t have natural peanut butter).
    3. I had to bake for 25 mins at 180 degree celsius. 10-12 mins wasn’t enough in my case.
    4. Since I added extra banana my mixture was more soggy than in the video so I couldn’t make firm balls but the final product after baking was not at all soggy.
    5. I stored it in a cool dry place but didn't refrigerate it. It developed fungus in around 3 days. So not sure what is the best storage method but if you are storing it like me then eat it quickly!

  2. I tried but not sure if the texture is right. Are we expecting softness or crunchiness? My cookies is rather soft. Not sure if I had refrigerated the dough overnight instead of just 30mins. I will try another one again as it was my first attempt. The taste is good!
