These Banana Bars are in my Top 3 list of Best Desserts Ever. These are TO DIE FOR and the best way to use up ripe bananas, in my opinion.
Some weeks we go through bananas like crazy and other weeks I feel like I should open a Geriatric Banana Nursing Home in the far corner of our kitchen. This was an elderly banana nursing home week. An alarming number of ailing bananas were piled high in our fruit bowl and I knew I had to take action. I made a couple loaves of my favorite Banana Bread and then I made these Banana Bars (adapted from this recipe from Gold Medal Flour's website).
They were so insanely delicious that I made another batch the following day. I deem these to be the world's best dessert, and you know those are BIG words coming from me. THESE ARE THE BEST. Thank you, aging bananas of the world.
At some point this weekend I will make a trip to the grocery store and I plan to possibly purchase a few too many bananas in hopes of HAVING to make these bars again. These Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies may or may not be on my list, as well.
Hoping you are comfy, cozy and WARM wherever you may be this weekend!
