Banana Nut Blondies with Maple Frosting

These banana nut blondies are bursting with flavor!  But we’ll be first to admit that the maple frosting takes them over the top!  We could eat this delicious frosting with a spoon! These blondies are dense and very moist.  Our kids loved them  and it’s a great way to use up those ripe bananas!
