These old-fashioned Banana Bars with chocolate chips are the epitome of snack-meets-dessert (or is it dessert-meets-snack?) stardom.
Wholesome enough to fly as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up but scrumptious enough to satisfy sweet cravings, this healthy-dessert-meets-anytime-munchie is a recipe you can feel great packing for your kids’ lunches or rewarding yourself with after (or during!) a long day, and they travel well for potlucks and picnics too.
One of the reasons I adore banana recipes like these Banana Bars so much is that they allow me to sweeten up my baked goods more naturally.
And when a dessert is better for you? You can feel great eating it more often. These Banana Bars are made from less processed ingredients and offer nutritional benefits too.
A happy handful of chocolate chips on top certainly doesn’t hurt their appeal either!
