These sounded good and the picture looked yummy. The cookies turned out slick and shiny looking and felt rubbery, but we gave it the benefit of doubt and tasted them...all 3 adults didn't like them.

If the batter is too liquid, I just added more oats. I also added dark chocolate chips instead of the golden raisins

I added a lot more dry ingredients once I realized how liquidy the batter was. It came out pretty cakey. I could've made these into a muffin.

I just made them too. I don't know what was was wrong in your situations but my cookies were great. They didn,t have "cakey" texture and they were not soupy or watery. I think the recipe is very good. I didn't mashed the banana, I choped it. I just ate 2 cookes and I feel full. They are very consistent. I'm definitely going to make this cookies again!

I also found the batter to be overly soupy - I added wheat flour and it worked ok.. the bottoms never crisped up though, they were kind of gooey. The taste was decent though.

I made them this morning- no soup but I used whole oats not quick cook which are thinner and may be your problem. Also used a large banana. So delicious!!

I made them smaller, they were very watery just like the previous reviews. I added a scoop of protein powder and extra oats with 2 T of wheat flour to help and cooked them only 8 -10 min. since they were smaller! I also used cranberries instead of raisins. They are delicious but the recipe needed tweaked!!

I experienced the same soupy batter. I added a few extra oats and about 1/4 cup of wheat germ to thicken it up, and they turned out great! Maybe next time I will start with 1/2 cup milk and add more if needed. I will be making these again, they're a perfect healthy grab-n-go breakfast!

Did anyone test this recipe???? As written it makes a soupy, pancake-like batter that can't be baked. I had to add another 1/2 c whole oats and 1/2 c flour to make it stiff enought to bake. And the size is huge. Really can't be 300 calories at that size! Otherwise tastes OK. Will probably eat a half of a cookie for breakfast.
