Chocolate Banana Bars

I don’t know how this happened, but time is flying and I haven’t had a chance to catch up on blog posts!  So – check out the new video from yesterday! You certainly won’t regret it.

Seriously, every time I would walk into my college apartment and smell these, it was heavenly. It turned into a comfort food very quickly.  I do love bananas and chocolate! Very simple to make. Good hot or cold… prepped and melting in your mouth within 45 minutes! I really was going to make this recipe for a video, but then she got engaged and it was even more of a reason to make it! YAY!!!!

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

2/3 cup white sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 3/4 cup flour

3 bananas

3/4 cup butter

1 egg, beaten

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

Set the oven to 350º.

Use a fork to mash up the 3 bananas.

In a mixing bowl, add the butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Cream together. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix!

Add the bananas and gently fold it into the mixture with a spatula.

In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Add this flour mixture to the butter mixture. Stir until combined. Add in the chocolate chips and combine.

Grease a 9×13 inch pan with some butter. Add your mixture and spread evenly.

Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean! Let it cool and then cut into even squares!

YUM.  I’ll be impressed if they last more than a day.

By the way, I made another one of my roommates recipes… it doesn’t have to be holiday, just cover with white sugar if it isn’t December!! Or… July is coming, maybe red, white and blue sugar?!

Happy baking!

Keep it classy,

Chef Stef
