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.

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

These are great tasting cookies! Definitely a great way to use up ripe bananas if you are tired of banana bread! Instead of using nutmeg and cinnamon, I used 1 t pumpkin pie spice, just b/c I love the stuff. They tasted great. I think these might taste good w/ finely chopped apples, too! I love that they are SO quick and easy. :)
