The description when I clicked on this said it was low-cholesterol, but I can't find that description on the actual page. It should be noted that trans-fat is horrible for cholesterol levels, so anyone who is concerned about cholesterol should not be cooking with a lot of shortening. Dietary intake of cholesterol does not actually have much effect on cholesterol levels.
I made a healthier version of this recipe with 1 1/2 cups of ground flaxseed in place of the shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup splenda, whole wheat flour, an extra banana, and I added about a teaspoon each of cinnamon and nutmeg. I don't have an electric mixer, so I just mixed it by hand. I tasted great but was a bit dense. However, it was just what I was looking for considering that my options were limited as I didn't have any milk or eggs.
