Delicious! I used wholemeal flour, coconut oil and coconut sugar to replace flour, butter and sugar to make them a bit healthier and they are so yummy! I also left out the walnuts since I'm not a nut fan.
Not bad! I halved the recipe but still used one egg, and I omitted the chocolate chips and walnuts. The bars weren't as chewy as blondies, but they were chewier than banana bread. They still tasted good, though!
Heavenly! I agree with OrangeOctober that this wonderful recipe yields a light, fluffy, perfectly sweet banana bread-chocolate chip cookie bar hybrid. I used a mix of milk and white chocolate chips in lieu of the semi-sweet. I wouldn't change a thing! Thanks Redsie! -Kari
