Got spotty bananas? Great. Let’s put them to good use with these Banana Bars with Butter-Rum Frosting-an easy-to-make recipe that comes together in just 10 minutes.
This is the kind of the dessert that I had to make and giveaway quickly or I would end up eating it all day until the pan was empty—even of crumbs. It’s simple in flavor and not too sweet. And if you skip the frosting, it’s really more like an afternoon teacake.
Speaking of frosting, the only adaptation I made was to marble it with a bit of melted chocolate. If you want to do the same thing, just drizzle a few teaspoons on top and then use an offset spatula and swirl it in it. Along with that, I didn’t have a 15x10x1 pan, my sheet pan is 12x16x1, so I used a 9×13 pan and baked it for 25 minutes.
To make this your own try:
- Swapping out the almonds for any nut of your choice or try some mini-chocolate chips and/or toffee chips, just make sure to keep the ratio amount the same.
- For the frosting try omitting the rum for two tablespoons of creamy peanut butter (You may need to add more milk to achieve an-easy spreading consistency. To do so add one tablespoon at a time).
