Wow, this recipe is amazing! I've been trying to find a good banana recipe for a while (I keep ending up with the remains of the kids' fruit trolley at school, lol), and this is definitely the best. I like the banana layer so much that the second time I made it, I didn't even use the cocoa powder! The only change I made was to use low-fat vanilla yogurt instead of margarine (because I didn't have any) and it still turned out really nice and moist. Thanks for a great recipe!

These are really yummy! I was looking for a Splenda recipe, and I found a real keeper. I was concerned with the texture of the batter, but the end result.. squashed that. I changed a few things based on the reviews I read. I used 3/4 cup of Splenda, added chocolate chips in the middle, and topped it with unsweetened coconut. I baked this in a 6X10 pyrex dish (see photo) for 30 -35 mins. These are GOOD, and not overly sweet. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Interesting bars. I made the mistake of using a 13x9 pan as the instructions indicated -- should have read the reviews first! My bad! These would definitely fit better in an 8x8 pan. I used ripe bananas yet next time I will use super-ripe ones! Thanks, Shy617. Made for Best of 2009 Cookbook tag game.
