Banana Bread Cookies

If your kids (or yourself!) love Dare's Bear Paws, give this recipe a try. These are a moist and cake-like cookie. Great for putting in kids' lunches.

1 cup butter-flavoured shortening (I used 1/2 c marg. and 1/2 c shortening)
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 bananas, mashed
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and bananas.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Keep them in a tightly sealed container to keep them soft otherwise they'll go quite hard (if you have any left by that time!).

Tip: Try adding various “Bear Paws” ingredients (ie. chocolate chips or apples and raisins, cocoa with a bit of mint extract…).
