    A tip: bananas can be frozen, in the skin, for weeks and used in such recipes. No need to discard them when they look over-ripe. Good flavor lasts a long time. Just thaw and discard skin; preserve any juices and use in the recipe as well.

    Question 6 months ago on Step 1

    At what point in the mixing should the vanilla be added? I don't see that ingredient mentioned anywhere except the original list. From the pictures in Step 2, I'm guessing that the brown liquid in the bowl with the melted butter and the sugars is the missing vanilla.

    Sorry, can't believe I did that...step 7 after everything is mixed together, it's the last thing you blend in. Edited to correct.

    Are you sure you meant BAKING SODA?
    perhaps you meant BAKING POWDER?
    Soda will make it very salty and won't produce CO2 like powder will.
    I made that mistake with a large batch of inedible cookies once. Has to toss them out.
