I love bar cookies and I love the annual Taste of Home cookbooks! Here's a variation of bar cookies which includes bananas and has walnuts not only in the bars but atop the glaze that frosts them...It's from the 1999 Annual Taste Of Home cookbook and was adapted to include the use of egg substitute instead of whole eggs and 1% milk instead of whole milk...Placed here for safekeeping!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C); grease a 15X10X1 pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; Add egg substitute and vanilla.
  3. Combine flours, baking powder, salt , baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Combine bananas and milk; add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with the banana mixture, mixing well.
  5. Stir in nuts; pour the batter into the greased baking pan and bake approximately 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool on wire rack and while it cools make the glaze.
  7. Glaze: cream the butter and sugar in a small bowl; stir in vanilla and enough of the boiling water until it reaches the desire consistency.
  8. Spread the glaze over the completely cool bars and sprinkle with chopped walnuts; cut in bars to serve.
  9. Do not spread the glaze over the bars if they are still warm or it will seperate; the bars must be room temperature.
