Who loves bananas?

We are definitely obsessed in my family!! We buy 2 bunches a week! YUP. It’s a great snack that the kids love and one that I don’t mind them eating at all. Occasionally, we are left with a few by the end of the week so I’m often baking with those leftover bananas. The kids love these baked goods just as much! I’m right there with them and love a warm slice of banana bread or a delicious banana muffin in the morning. I also like having a few spare bananas for baking because I feel like there are always opportunities to take some to the neighbors, to some friends, or to someone at church who might need a little “extra” love.

One recipe I had yet to try was Banana Bars. My mom wanted to try them and they were a hit. Not sure if it’s the sour cream or loads of butter that make these bars so moist and delicious OR the cream cheese frosting, but either way they were amazing. They obviously didn’t last long at my family’s house and have been added to the “recipes to make with over-ripe bananas” list. 😉

I admit the frosting is always the best part and I think you’ll love these bars, especially if you’re a fan of bananas as well. 🙂
