I bought a bag of over ripe bananas. I do it all the time. I love all things banana. I wanted my weekend to be baking free so over nap time on Friday I decided to make banana bread. There were LOTS more bananas that needed using than just the amount I needed for banana bread so I decided to make some banana bars.
I am so glad I did because these are delicious.
I ended up using this recipe for the bars (find it here) but I made up my own frosting recipe.
I love the peanut butter and banana combo flavor so I thought I’d concoct a peanut butter frosting for the bars…oh my word…Yum.
Here’s what I did to make the frosting.
4 oz cream cheese
1 1/4 cups of crunchy peanut butter
Soften in the microwave for 90 seconds.
1 teaspoon of vanilla
3 Tablespoons of milk
Mix with mixer. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar. Add more powdered sugar if you want a thicker frosting…or more milk if you want it thinner.
Spread on cooled bars.
The bars aren’t fancy…but they are wonderful tasting. You won’t be able to eat just one!
