Banana bars with brown sugar frosting.

Catslover liked this recipe from my blog so I thought I should share it here as well. Enjoy

Banana bars with brown sugar frosting.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt or sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg
2 ripe, mashed bananas
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)

Instructions for the bars:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

In a large bowl and using an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar.

Add yogurt/sour cream, egg and vanilla and mix until well blended.

Add mashed banana and mix.

Add dry ingredients and mix to incorporate.

Pour batter into baking dish and spread with a spatula to smooth.

Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

Cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup (4 Tbsp) butter
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup walnuts (optional)

Instructions For the frosting:

In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter and milk and heat over medium heat to bring to a boil stirring constantly.

Boil for 30 seconds, then remove from heat and quickly stir in vanilla and powdered sugar until combined.

Immediately pour frosting over bars and sprinkle walnuts over the top (optional).

Allow frosting to cool before cutting and serving.

This is easy to make and very good. I used sour cream. I made no changes.
Instructions are easy to follow.

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

Thank you for the kind words. I'm so glad you liked the bars. One of our favorite ways to use ripe banana's.
