BANANA BREAD BARS WITH CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

                                 

BANANA BREAD BARS WITH CHOCOLATE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
One of my best banana bread bar recipes!  Moist, sweet, fudgy, dense bars – delicious! You can skip the chocolate chips if you like – plenty of cocoa flavor in the frosting. These are great for children, too. The carbs are spread kindly with these bars as one uses a jelly roll pan (12 x 17 inch) instead of the usual 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) baking dish. One bar is very satisfying.  The other interesting part that although I included chocolate chips, I only used 1/cup (125 mL) and again the carbs are spread kindly.  There is absolutely no need for more chocolate chips in these sweet bars with the unusual chocolate cream cheese frosting.  These bars freeze well.  Great for the holidays when you need to feed a crowd, and you can have a one or two pieces as well.
