I’m just going to start right off and say these Banana Bars are delicious!  They are moist and the browned butter frosting add just the right touch of sweetness.  You could even leave off the icing and they will still taste great.

We are huge fans of bananas in our house.  Connor eats them all the time so I decided to whip these banana bars up over the weekend.  I originally made them for breakfast but I’ve been eating them for dessert too.  I could probably eat these bad boys all day long!

And you know what tastes great with these banana bars?  A warm cup of coffee with my new favorite coffee creamer – International Delight Simply Pure.  I picked up the Hazelnut the other day while shopping at Walmart and I LOVE it!  I especially love that it is made with real milk, cream and sugar and only includes 5 simple ingredients.

Most days the thought of coffee is what gets me out of bed and, I don’t know about you, but I cannot drink coffee without coffee creamer.  If you love coffee creamer as much as I do, you have to try International Delight Simply Pure.  It contains real milk, cream, and sugar and is available in three simply delicious flavors: Vanilla, Caramel, and Hazelnut.

  1. We love banana bread around here, but I’ve never made banana bars! What a fun twist on a classic. And I’m thinking a nice mug of hazelnut coffee will go quite well with these bars, too. Thanks for sharing! #client

  2. I have a banana cake recipe that I make and just top with cool whip. I’m going to try this frosting recipe.
