Am I the only one who always has ripe bananas on the counter? And in the freezer? I swear we can’t eat them fast enough. Or maybe I overbuy so I have some ripe ones on hand for baking? All things banana are a hit in this house, like Banana Bread, Banana Muffins and even Slow Cooker Oatmeal. But nothing makes a day better than coming home and seeing a pan of Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting sitting on the counter.
Whenever I want to have a special snack, I know these banana bars will get a thumbs up from everyone. These take 5 minutes to mix together and can be eaten frosted or right out of the oven. We prefer ours cold, but I always test a corner before they get frosted. The smell is just too tempting when they come out of the oven!
Filled with mashed banana and slathered with cream cheese frosting, these bars are the perfect combination of dessert and banana bread. And since they make a big pan, they are perfect for a crowd. Don’t have a group to feed? No worries, just pop them in the freezer and pull them out when the craving hits. Instant gratification.
