    I was surprised at how much I liked these. The salt sprinkled on top really is critical, don't skip that step. They're very dense, but that's good! It makes them filling. I cooked mine for 14 minutes, that seemed to be perfect. I will definitely make again. I am also planning to try adding some walnut or pecan pieces.

    Great! Added orange zest and chia seed. We like these frozen. Helps a bit with the banana texture.

    awful. I don't know how I could have screwed up a three ingredient recipe, but I tasted one and threw the rest in the trash.

    I was really happy with these! I love the richness of cacao, and the banana added the right amount of sweetness to make them palatable. I found they really curbed my cravings for something sugary! I'll definitely be making these again next week.

    1 cookie kills the chocolate and baked goods cravings! If you like really dark chocolate(70-80%) with sea salt, then you'll like these. I used Himalayan Pink Salt. Yum! The recipe yielded 20 cookies which breaks down to 62 calories per cookie. I have a gas oven, used parchment paper and baked for 10 minutes. They're still soft allover and fudgy in the middle.

    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!

    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!!

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

    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.'
