We are always on the lookout for new recipes to use up the over-ripened bananas we always seem to have sitting on our counter. I saw this recipe on Pinterest and thought the kids would enjoy these. Please note that the recipe below is my adaption of the original recipes that were found. The bars were easy to put together and my 8 year old daughter helped me do most of the prep. After I made the frosting, I found the browned butter flavor to be tasty but overall, SUPER sweet. To keep these bars more versatile, I only frosted half of them. We ate most the unfrosted section of bars as part of our breakfast for several mornings. The frosted side was more of a later day snack/dessert. These bars were super moist and tasty. Next time, I won’t even bother with the frosting and just make them as bars.

(Please note: the original recipe called for a 15×10 inch jelly pan and baking time of 20-25 minutes. I used a 12×8 inch pan that was smaller and deeper and my bars needed at least 40 minutes.)
