I had two good sized bananas that I needed to use up and thought some type of banana baked good would be the perfect way to use them up. I found the recipe on another food blog.
Banana Bars a la Ashleigh
1/2c. Butter, softened 1 1/2 c. white sugar 2 eggs 1 c. sour cream 1 t. vanilla extract 2 c. all-purpose flour 1 t. baking soda 1/4 t. salt 1 c. ripe mashed bananas 1 container cream cheese frosting peanut butter (I added this to the original recipe)
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease a 10x15 jelly roll pan (I used a 9X13 glass baking dish). In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the batter. Finally, mix in mashed bananas. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Note: I used a different size pan so they took a little longer to cook. Allow bars to cool completely before frosting. Mix together the cream cheese frosting and peanut butter and frost.
No Pudge Brownies are a boxed mix that offers you FAT FREE brownies. I recently made the Fudge version and they were great!! All you do is add yogurt (I used fat free french vanilla) to the mix and bake. I also added some caramel chocolate swirl chips to the mix. Even without the chips these brownies still would of been wonderful! Try them today!! Here is their website: http://www.nopudge.com/
