Banana Spice Bars

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by akgrown

Our favorite use for over-ripe bananas, a nice alternative to banana bread. It has a light lemon glaze that really compliments the spice and banana filled bars. *Note* Recipe edited per Laurie's Review suggestions for the glaze.

Delicious and super easy. I wanted to see how they tasted a day old, but when I woke up to have one with my coffee, they had mysteriously disappeared!!!
