Bananas are a hot commodity in our house! I love them every morning sliced in my cereal, yogurt or on top of my peanut butter toast. Jeff takes a half a banana with him on his way to school every morning. BUT, we both only like them when they’re pretty much green! So I often find that I bought a few to many bananas and we end up with some that are way to ripe to eat plain.
Typically my go-to recipes are banana bran muffins for my freezer (I like to pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds and eat them for an on-the-go breakfast), OR my favorite banana bread, but I saw this recipe on pinterest and I’ve been eager to try it.
The verdict: these little bars were insanely good! I’ll be throwing this recipe into the “bad bananas” rotation, that’s for sure!
Yields 24 large bars
For the glaze:
In a large skillet heat the butter over medium heat until boiling. Stir continually until the butter turns a delicate brown (watch carefully so you don’t burn the butter) and remove from heat immediately.
Whisk in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk until smooth. You can add a little more powdered sugar or milk to make it thicker or thinner, to your liking. Pour the glaze over the warm bars (this is easiest when the bars are warm, just out of the oven). Spread evenly with the back of a spoon.
