These were good but they put me thru the ringer. I had the crust in the pan and had mashed the bananas and opened the sweetened condense milk only to find the color a bit odd. Oh the 2007 date on the bottom might be the reason. Off to buy a new can. Got back finished up and on my way to the oven took one last look at the directions - didn't reserve the 1c. crumbs. It was all on the bottom. Anyway all that aside and my revisions it was still good. I used a chocolate cake mix, no nuts, used peanut butter/ chocolate swirl chips instead and egg beaters. Thanks for the recipe even thru all that it was good.

wow these are super moist extremely delicious and very rich, I made for my DS and his GF they thoroughly enjoyed the bars, thanks mary!

Major Yum! Sinfully delicious. This was EXACTLY the recipe I'd lost & had been looking for. My husband is a Mason, all of the brother Masons devoured these on sight. I made these at 5:30 a.m., before having coffee, & forgot to add coconut & chips--still perfect! Had to bake for about 50 minutes (glass dish, 325 degrees).
