Monkey Bars

These are so delicious. They are like a cross between brownies, chocolate chip cookies and banana bread. They are a fun alternative to cookies and brownies. This is my mom's recipe and when I made them no one could just eat one! So yummy!

Monkey Bars

  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
