My husband especially liked these whoopie pies! I like that they use up some of my brown bananas!
Banana Whoopie Pies

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup oil

Heat oven 350 degrees. In a bowl whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, cream together the oil and sugar until light. Beat in egg followed by vanilla and mashed banana. Add flour mixture and stir until just mixed.
Drop with a cookie scoop onto cookie sheets and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned around the edges and “set” in the center.
