    Okay so I bought the clearance sale bananas that are all mushy and I wanna make cookies with them.

    I know bananas can replace an ingredient but I forget which one. Was it flour? @SAKARINBO have you done this?

    eggs probably. I doubt a banana can replace flour for a cookie. Old bananas are also considerably sweeter than ripe so you wont need so much sugar.
    I have made banana pancakes but they only worth with firm, ripe bananas.
    Why not make a banana bread?

    Yes that's what the recipe says to do. Well the real recipe is peanut butter, sugar, and egg. But I replaced egg with banana because I had no egg.

    Pb sugar and egg is the softest most chewy cookie ever. Way superior to all the other cookies.

    I think my bananas were just too old. When I picked them up they fell off the stem and splatted on the floor :D

    Hahaha Jesus, what a hot mess.
    I'm guessing your ratio of wet to dry was the problem. You could try freezing the bananas overnight and adding more sugar.
