I got this recipe from a friend when I was in the tenth grade. She gave me one at lunch and I loved it! (I love banana bread, so this was perfect!) I asked for the recipe that day and I decided to post it! I hope you like it!

Really good cookies. Instead of shortening, I used 1/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce. It affected the consistency, making it a more cake-y type of cookie, but they tasted great. I'll definitely make them again.

Very nice cookie recipe! I added raisins and chocolate chips and omitted the nuts. They taste just like banana bread. They are more cake-like than cookie. I got 42 cookies and my bake time was 12 minutes. Thanks for sharing.

These cookies are great! Super moist and much like banana nut bread. Will make lots more. They did not last long in my home.
