Great banana bars!, August 14, 2006 - 04:35 AM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Arlington, WI
This recipe was easy to follow with basic ingrediants. The bars are so moist and tasty. I wasn't sure about the frosting or topping as it didn't taste the best if you try it by itself, however, it was a perfect match for the bars. Not mentioned in the recipe, I kept mine in the fridge which I think adds to the great taste.
