A very moist banana cookie bar. These never last long in my house. Dust with powdered sugar before cutting. I love these as a frozen treat. After cutting, package the bars in snack bags and freeze. Then just pull out a bag and munch whenever you want!

This recipe was a big hit! I often make banana bread or banana cake with my overripe bananas, but I decided to give this one a try since I had sour cream I needed to use. The additional spices really sets this apart! I used only 1 cup of sugar and it was plenty sweet enough for my family. Read More
