Banana Bars

Frosted with peanut butter frosting
The recipe for this is found in The Betty Crocker's Cookie Book that was first published in 1963. My parents have a copy of the original book, I think as a wedding gift. A reproduction was printed in 2002 and I got me a copy of the reproduction.

The recipe for the banana bars is found in the section of the book for bland diets. When I make these bars I add nuts and frost them.
I usually make these from time to time and is delicious.

However next time I might try the recipe Betty Crocker current has on the web. It is a banana bar recipe with cream cheese frosting. This recipe uses less flour, changes the leavening proportions, and adds cinnamon.

So that recipe can be found here.
