      Me and My mom loved it. I love both version...I love the original recipe and my low fat version also :) I decided to play with the recipe a little bit, I made it low fat.
      I used 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tablespoon vegetable oil 4 Tablespoon applesauce, 1 egg and everything else the same. I baked it in 8inch square pan. It was very moist and yummy. It tasted just like banana bread! I left out the frosting too :)
      Thanks Lavender Lynn for the great recipe!

      Excellent! Even my DH who claimed he didn't like banana baking loved this. I had to make him say he liked banana baking before he had a 3rd piece. I think next time I make it I'll use an 8in square pan that way the bars are a little thicker. For the icing I only used 1 cup of icing sugar instead of 2 and it was still quite sweet but spreadable. *UPDATE* I doubled the recipe in a 9x13in pan to make more of a cake instead of a bar and it turned out great! Baked for 55 mins

      Oh Lynn, these bars are truly fab! We ate a bunch even before I got to frost them. Truly, you can eat these without the frosting.....even though I did frost the uneaten bars. I loved the way the bars rose uniformly. Perfect. Scrumptious. My favorite banana dessert recipe thus far!
