{Banana Bars} with Awesome Frosting!!

nanner bars @NorthernCottage.net

These bars are divine!!

and they have the bonus of using those
a little too ripe bananas
sitting on your counter

nanners @ northerncottage.net

USE UP THOSE ‘NANNERS!!!

mmmmmm!!

Here’s the lowdown:

{I initially got the banana bar recipe from here}
– miss you darby!!

Frosted Banana Bars @NorthernCottage.net

{YUMMY BANANA BARS}

1/2 c butter (softened)

2 c sugar

3 eggs

pinch of salt

3 medium ripe bananas (mashed)

1 t vanilla

2 c flour

1 t baking soda

--------------------

Beat sugar and butter until creamy.  Beat in eggs, banana and vanilla.  Combine flour, soda & salt; add to creamed mixture.  Pour into 15 x 10 pan.  Bake at 350 for 25 – 30 min until golden brown.

eggs @ northerncottage.net

I just love baking with
brown eggs…
simply because they’re
pretty!
and
a vintage aqua mixing bowl
 for the same reason!

Bake up the bars and then top with frosting of your choice

… instead of cream cheese frosting like usual 

I chose to try a
new pudding/whipped cream frosting
that I snagged off pinterest here (via here)

& then topped it off with toffee bits

oh yeah baby!
