I had a couple of over ripe bananas I was guarding to make banana bread. My husband must have asked me 10 times if he could throw them out and the answer was “NO!” each time.
Then I saw on facebook that my friend Val was raving about the Banana Bars she made. So I did what any ripe banana hoarder would do and asked for the recipe. I changed it a bit and made Peanut Butter Banana Bars instead. I wondered if they were like the frosted banana bars that Mique shared.
Peanut Butter Banana Bars
After I baked them, I thought I would eliminate the chocolate chips next time and instead add walnuts. I can’t believe I just said that……but they were plenty sweet without adding the chocolate chips.
They had the perfect blend of banana taste and peanut butter taste. My husband tried to tell me they tasted like overly ripe banana’s…….He didn’t realize that all banana bread, muffins etc… are made with overly ripe bananas.
These bars were VERY moist and sweet, so I decided against adding the icing that her recipe had.
So, who’s got some banana’s that are over ripe? Make these and let me know how you like them!
