Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter. Finally, mix in the mashed banana. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow bars to cool completely before frosting with the cream cheese frosting.

I really like these! I made a few changes, though. I remembered reading somewhere that you can cut almost half of the sugar out of any recipe without affecting the end product. So I cut the sugar down to 1 cup. I also used fat-free plain yogurt instead of the sour cream. I don't have a 10x15 pan so I used a 9x13 and cooked it for 30 min. I got a nice, moist cake-like bar. I also frosted it with a Chocolate Peanut Butter frosting made of 2C powdered sugar, 2T cocoa, 4T milk, 2T peanut butter, and 1/2t vanilla. I really enjoyed these for a way to use up ripe bananas besides the standard banana bread.

I have never made these bars without someone asking for the recipe. Just use 2-3 lg. very ripened bananas and you will have plenty of flavor. Please don't put store bought frosting on them. There is a recipe on this site for Whipped Cream Cream Cheese frosting that is a superb complement to these bars. ENJOY! Bring copies with you!

My only complaint is that I can't give this recipe 6 stars! These are wun-der-ful! It's so great making a 'bar' recipe the comes out of the pan perfectly and makes a great presentation. I served them chilled because my sister has a similar recipe and for some reason it really brings out the banana flavor. I only used two really dark bananas but you could really taste the flavor; I added some cinnamon, too. For such a simple recipe it really does make a ton - an entire jelly roll pan... WOW! I made a softer frosting of one block cream cheese, 2 cups of powdered sugar, tsp vanilla and some milk to thin it out ever so slightly. Stop searching for recipes... turn off your computer & go make these. They are really delicious.
