Introduction

Light fluffy cookie that is great for using up those overripe bananas. Can probally be made healthier with splenda and egg substitute, but I have not tried yet.

    Made these today since I have so many ripe bananas, and I'm glad I did. Love them. They are more like muffin tops than cookies since it's more of a banana bread texture. I didn't use any extra sugar or cinnamon to coat the top....figured it will save me a few calories, and frankly it doesn't need it - 3/31/12

    Delicious! (My husband wouldn't stay out of the batter-lol.) I mixed the shortening, vanilla and sugar for at least ten minutes before I got to light & fluffy (My mixer is very old). These were light, fluffy and possibly the best cookies I've ever had! Thank you! - 7/3/09

    OMG!!!! These were unbelievably light, fluffy, and tasty! I've been looking for a banana cookie recipe for some time. After reading the last rating, I hesitated. When I decided to try these, I made sure to mix the batter really well-the cookies came out unbelievably delicious!!!!!! 5-star plus! - 7/1/09

    Baked these tonight. While second sheet is baking hubby and I tried one and they are so delicious. We agreed to bypass the sugar/cinnamon sprinkling on top. I did 4 very ripe bananas, dash more cinnamon and drop more pure vanilla extract. This will be my go to instead of banana bread now.. - 11/22/15

    A little flatter than I anticipated. Not the recipe that I wanted at all. They were ok, but I dont think I will make them again. - 6/30/09

    Sorry your cookies came out flat. Mine always come out light and fluffy.You really need to mix the sugar and shortening until its fluffy.That is the only thing I can think of that might have messed up your cookies.
