I have added chocolate buttons to the banana cookies but this is optional. These wheat cookies are a much healthier option than the regular maida cookies.

Can I add nuts to the cookie?
I added walnuts, the best combination with bananas however you can add any type of dry fruits like almonds, cashews, raisins, etc. Adding nuts to the cookies enhance the flavor. Even you can enjoy plain classic cookies with intense banana flavor.
Are eggs mandatory?
Eggs give a soft and fluffy texture for the cookies however you can skip the eggs in this recipe because banana takes up the work of eggs in making it extremely soft.
I know your urge to try the delicious cookies but you will get the intense banana flavor, only with overripe bananas. Here is a tip to easily ripen your banans.
Put the bananas in a paper cover and loosely fold it. Add apple or few already riped bananas. This will help to increase the ethylene gas which helps in riping the fruit faster. In this way, your banana will ripe enough in a day.
The other method is the oven riping trick. Place your bananas in a lined baking plate and turn on the oven to 300 degrees. bake until the skin turns black. Let the bananas cool down. Soft and mushy bananas are ready to try new recipes.
