I wanted another way to use ripe bananas and a friend came to the rescue with this recipe years ago. It has become a HUGE hit with our family. They are moist and yummy and are especially good with a glass of cold milk. They don't last long around our house! Enjoy!

Had ripe bananas and chips and a party to go to. My only complaint was that the bars crumbled a bit on the bottom and I did not overbake them since I like my baked goods moist. Not sure if dusting with flour would help, but I will make this recipe again and try dusting the pan with flour.

I had some bananas that needed to be used, so I made this recipe. I don't know if my bananas were way to ripe, but this had a very strong banana flavor that didn't blend well with the chocolate chips. I do like banana chocolate chip recipes, but this was just okay. It was quick to throw together, and easy to make. But as for flavor just so so. I think if I make this again I will use just regular bananas, not overripe ones.
