Recipe Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting #cookies

Makes an 8x8" pan


For the bars:
  1. 1/2 cup butter, melted and if desired browned
  2. 1 cup light brown sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  5. 1/4 tsp salt
  6. 1 cup flour
  7. 1/2 cup mashed banana (1 medium banana)
For the frosting:
  1. 4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
  2. 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  3. 2 cups powdered sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (You can substitute 1/2 teaspoon of Fiori di Sicilia if you have it. It is a blend of citrus and vanilla that tastes fantastic with cream cheese frosting)


  1. For the Blondies: Preheat oven to 350°-f. Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside
  2. In bowl of stand mixer combine melted (or browned) butter and sugar. Mix until combined. Add in egg and vanilla and continue mixing until incorporated. Stir in salt, flour and banana until batter is smooth and even. Spread in prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes until center is set. Transfer pan to wire rack to cool. Frost the blondies when they are cooled.
  4. For the frosting: In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  5. Serve the brownies either at room temperature or chilled (we prefer chilled). Keep leftovers in the fridge.
