How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar. Beat in banana, molasses, vanilla and maple extract.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices. Stir in oats.
  • Add the flour/oat mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the batter (1/3 of the flour/oat mixture, 1/4 cup buttermilk, another 1/3 flour/oats, rest of the buttermilk, rest of the flour/oats) beating well after each addition. Stir in nuts.
  • Using a large cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, place cookie dough on greased baking sheets, 2” apart. Press down slightly, if desired (cookies will not spread a whole lot) This will produce 12 4" cookies - you can certainly opt to make smaller ones)
  • Bake 10-12 minutes or until tops look dry and cookies are just golden around the edges. Remove to wire racks to cool completely
  • For filling:
  • Whip shortening with electric mixer until fluffy; beat in maple syrup and vanilla. Beat in confectioner's sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating extremely well after each addition. Add a little milk - up to 2 tbsp total - if necessary to achieve a light and fluffy consistency.
  • Spread filling on bottom of one cookie and top with another.
