Too MANY bananas?
TWO Recipes...

Single batch takes about two very ripe,
schmooshed down in measuring cup to measure one cup.
I usually bake a double batch...soft-texture...
more like a muffin top.

1   tablespoon orange juice
and set aside.

Cream together:
1/2  cup Butter flavored Crisco

1 1/2 cups flour (I use Whole Wheat)

1  teaspoon baking powder

1/4  teaspoon baking soda

1/2  teaspoon salt

2   teaspoons cinnamon

Add flour mixture to banana,sugar,
shortening,egg mixture,
about a 1/2 cup at a time.
Fold in:
1 1/2 cups uncooked rolled oats

Drop by level tablespoons or
mini scoop onto lightly greased
baking sheets.
