Boy I had a skeptic in the house when I was making these. There were lots of questions and queries as to why would I mix this or add that...but he loved them! My toughest critic was very happy. I did add cinnamon only because I like the flavour with the banana and because I knew it would win me a bit of brownie points too. My mix was a bit runny at first and I had to add quite a bit more flour and used whole wheat flour for almost 1/2 the recipe.
