I had four bananas just waiting for a recipe, but I didn't want to make banana bread again--I wanted something different. This recipe is incredible; very moist with really good banana flavor. I cut the sugar down to 1 3/4 cup, and might try even less next time, since the ripe bananas are so sweet on their own. I was in a hurry, so I frosted them with storebought vanilla frosting & added some chopped walnuts on top; although I think these would also be very good even without frosting. The bars would be awesome served while still warm, with some vanilla ice cream -- mmmmmmmm. I will make this recipe again! -M

These were incredible!!! I made them, flipped 'em over to let them cool, and part of the bottom tore off. These were more like a cake, or a banana bread. I tried them before and after frosting, and think that I liked them better before (but I don't like very sweet anyways). This is my new banana bread of choice!! Great recipe, thanks!

This was very good. The frosting was excellent. I will make this again when the banans start getting too ripe.
