Guest Recipe from Judy: Banana Bars

Judy brought these to work one day and they were so good that I solicited the recipe for the blog. She says she always puts in less sugar - at least 1/2 cup in the bars. She also starts with lower sugar in the icing and works her way up to a level found acceptable by her husband and children!

Banana Bars

1/2 c butter, softened
2 c sugar
3 eggs
1.5 c mashed bananas (3)
1 t vanilla
2 c flour
1 t baking soda
pinch salt

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, bananas, and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Pour in a greased 15x10" pan. Bake at 350F for 25 min or until done.


1/2 c butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese
3 c powdered sugar
2 t vanilla

Allow the bars to cool, then cream together butter and cream cheese. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat well. Spread over bars.
