wish I could take credit for this banana bread bars with brown butter frosting recipe, but I can’t. It is absolutely BRILLIANT. When Pinterest first came out, I found this recipe from Life’s Simple Measures. This was one of the very first recipes I tried from Pinterest and I LOVED it.

Life’s Simple Measures is a great Blog Site with lots of good looking recipes such as Blueberry Pie Bars and Butterscotch N Cream Muffins. You should check it out. But let me tell you about her Banana Bread Bars…. OMG!!!!

The banana bread bars are moist, dense, and full of delicious banana flavor. That frosting though….. The frosting is what seals the deal. The brown butter frosting is rich, buttery, sweet, and creamy. I could eat it for days if my waistline would let me. It is freakin’ AWESOME!!! (Like lick the bowl good.)

I really can’t help myself from eating bar after bar when I make a batch. I purposely make these when I am bringing a dessert for a big group. That way I can only steal one or two. My friends are always asking for the recipe so I thought I better get this recipe up to share. Maybe one of them will make a batch for me? Yes?

I love a good cake, especially if it is moist and creamy. In this recipe, I am going to give you my tips and tricks on how to make the Best Coconut Cream Poke Cake. This cake has turned into one of my personal favorites. After you take a bite, it will become one of yours also!I hope you love these banana bread bars with brown butter frosting as much as I do.

Here is the deal… I have a love/ hate relationship with desserts. I love them. They love me back on my waist and thighs…. I try to break up with their calories and like a bad boyfriend, and they just cling on forever….. Therefore, I am choosy with my desserts… If I write a post about dessert, it is good… real good. I know at the end of the day that one darn dessert I am making is going to take me a week or more to burn off. So enjoy! This is a good dessert! You are welcome. xoxo


Cook time: 25 Min  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: 12


Ingredients :


1-1/2 c sugar
1 c sour cream
1/2 c butter
2 eggs
4 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1/2 c butter
4 c powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp milk

Directions :

1. Heat oven to 375F. Grease and flour 15×10-inch jelly roll pan. For the bars, in a large bowl, beat together sugar, sour cream, butter, and eggs until creamy. Blend in bananas and vanilla extract. Add flour, baking soda, salt, and blend for 1 minute. Stir in walnuts.
2. Spread batter evenly into pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
3. Meanwhile, for frosting, heat butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Let the butter turn a delicate brown and remove from heat immediately.
4. Add powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Whisk together until smooth (it should be thicker than a glaze but thinner than frosting). Using a spatula, spread the brown butter frosting over the warm bars (the frosting will be easier to spread while the bars are still warm).
