Banana Bars Recipe

I am usually a brownie lover, but after trying these banana bars I don’t think I’ll ever go back! Not only do they taste amazing, but they are so easy and quick to make.


Banana Bars:
1 ½ cups sugar
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
½ cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1 ½ cups mashed very ripe bananas (about 2)
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
Glaze Ingredients:
¼ cup butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbs. milk
1 tsp vanilla
Combine sugar, sour cream (or yogurt), butter, and eggs. Stir in mashed bananas and vanilla. Add flour, salt, and baking soda. Spread into a greased 10x15x1 (regular sized cookie sheet) and bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until light brown. After it has cooled, whisk butter, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla together for the glazed topping and spread over top.

    I’ve been really diggin banana things lately so this of course sounds delicious. A gas station/convenience store around here called Sheetz just started canning their own iced coffees and they have a chocolate banana one that is absolutely amazing! Sorry..I’m rambling..thanks for sharing :)

    I had some very ripe bananas in need of a recipe, and I came across yours!
    I used less sugar (1 cup instead of 1.5), plain non-fat Greek yogurt, and whole wheat flour. I also skipped the glaze and these bars came out great!

    The first time I made these they turned out looking and tasting exactly like banana bread (I made in a 9×13 casserole dish) but light in texture like cake. They were amazing. The 2nd and 3rd time I made these they turned out looking and tasting like cake, banana flavoured. I don’t know what happened, I’m doing everything the same, but I enjoyed more the first time. Still a great recipe, I just wish I knew how to get it looking/tasting like light airy banana bread again.
