A question about a recipe: The New Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Efb44dbb 2f95 4196 88c3 4cf3bfcfb5e5  pb cookies

I have a question about the recipe "The New Classic Peanut Butter Cookies" from Posie Harwood. May I substitute very ripe banana for all or part of the sugar? If so, what other adjustments should I make?

I haven't done this fruit-for-sugar substitution, but this blogger says 1 cup mashed bananas with a couple tbsp water can substitute for 1 cup sugar.

I have replaced sugar with fruit successfully in recipes many times. Mostly using applesauce. I prefer, however to use a recipe that's written specifically for this application. If you do want to use this recipe I'd suggest starting out using a small amount of banana. It's surprising how adding or omitting an ingredient can change taste and texture of a recipe.
