These are really light and fluffy. They have a very good banana bread flavor like a muffin but much less dense.

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Mix crisco with banana. Add the sugars and mix until well combined. Add egg. Then add dry ingredients. Do not over mix.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes until the top is set or toothpick inserted comes clean.

These did stick a bit on an un-prepared cookie sheet. I would use a silicone baking mat next time.
