BANANA BARS

Hey friends! This is a treat we enjoy year around in our house – Frosted Cream Cheese Banana Bars! Anytime I have some bananas going bad then these get made. In fact I swear my kids purposely don’t eat our bananas, just so that I will make these! They’re that yummy!
They’re a great treat to take to a party or get together – holiday parties, birthday parties, baby showers and more! The nuts on the top are optional, but in my opinion are a must! haha!

    Made these today with my children. Great recipe and they loved it. I reduced the sugar by about a quarter cup and will likely reduce it even more next time. A bit sweet for our taste but yummy with the tang of the cream cheese icing. Love your site and thanks for sharing this recipe!
