Needed . . . recipe for really ripe bananas!!

I had three bananas that were VERY ripe!  And I didn't want to throw them away!  So, this is what I came up with!

Banana Chocolate Chip Bars

3/4 c butter
2/3 c sugar
2/3 c brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 c mashed bananas (2 - 3 bananas)
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
2 c chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars.  Add baking powder and salt.  Beat again.
Add egg, bananas, and vanilla.  Mix till well blended.
Add flour.  Mix well  Then add chips and mix again.

Spread on a greased 10X15 baking sheet.  Bake at 350* for 20 - 25 minutes.
Cool completely.

Now, this is the recipe as I found it.  But I know Wayne enough to know that he will think it needs a good cream cheese icing on the top!  So, here is a good cream cheese icing recipe.

Cream Cheese Icing

1  8 oz cream cheese
1/4 c soft butter
1 1/2 - 2 c powdered sugar 
1/2 tsp vanilla

Beat cream cheese and butter until very smooth.  Add vanilla. Then add powdered sugar and beat till smooth.
Spread on cool bar cookies.

(**  And to put it completely over the top, add 1/4 - 1/2 c cocoa powder for chocolate cream cheese icing!!)  Yummo!!

  1. You can always put over ripe bananas unpeeled in the freezer and just thaw out sometime when you need them
