About the only way I'll eat bananas is in breads or desserts...This recipe from the 1999 Taste of Home cookbook is nice but I must confess I substitute soft butter for the shortening ;-)

These were OK. They were easy to make. I didn't care for the texture-maybe because of the shortening. The spice combination was nice.
