Ingredients

For the banana bars:

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

For the frosting:

  • 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

For the banana bars:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mash the bananas together with a fork until smooth. Whisk in the vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla extract.
  2. Add in the sugar, flour, baking soda and salt and whisk until combined. Pour into a greased 9×9 baking pan.
  3. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting:

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until creamy, about a minute. Add in one cup of powdered sugar at a time until completely combined and smooth.
  2. Evenly frost the banana bars once they have cooled completely. Cut into 9 equal-sized bars. Enjoy!

Notes

  • These Frosted Banana Bars are a great option for either breakfast or dessert!
  • They store very well in the refrigerator once cooled and frosted.
