Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting are the perfect way to use leftover bananas!
When you find a couple of ripe bananas on your counter what is the first thing you think of ? Most likely – it’s banana bread! Well, next time you find a couple of ripe bananas give this recipe for banana bars a try – they are so yummy!
It makes a huge batch since it uses a big jellyroll pan so there are plenty to share. It’s a good “potluck” dessert since it makes so much My friend Jane Densley shared this recipe with me and it has become a family favorite.
My favorite part is the cream cheese frosting on top. Even people who don’t like bananas (that would be me) will love these banana bars.
They are moist and full of yummy banana flavor and the cream cheese frosting is amazing.
So if you have any leftover banana bars be sure and refrigerate them so the cream cheese doesn’t go bad.
