Banana Bars

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by majakete

Another way to use up those over-ripe bananas. Sometimes I also add chocolate chips to the banana mixture or a little bit of cocoa to the frosting mixture, for a different taste.

Opinions on this one were pretty split between those who loved them and those who thought they were all right. Those who loved them (including myself) found them to be light, fluffy, cake-like, and yummy. Those who thought they were OK didn't love the flavor. I used chocolate chips in them. I'm still making them again since several people loved them!
