Banana Squares

Recipe by bmcnichol

A wonderful dessert or breakfast. These also freeze well.

Tasty and light slice! I did think it was a little too sweet for our palates, but it might have been also that our bananas were very sweet to start off with. I would serve this warm with some ice cream but for the moment it's in our freezer for DH's morning tea!
