Banana-peanut butter fluffs

I was experimenting with banana substitution for butter again and came up with this light and fluffy cookie which I have called...

Banana-peanut butter fluffs
1 overripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1-1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix the banana, peanut butter and both sugars with the egg. Add the flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Mix well. Spoon dough on to a piece of baking paper and bake in a 375F/180C oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen cookies which are light and cake like in texture.

Happy baking!
