“Absolutely addictive! These bars are moist, light, and fluffy like a quick bread (rather than dense like a brownie). They have a slight sweet/salty thing going on that takes them to the next level. Make a pan and watch them disappear! These are a huge hit at potlucks. You can double this recipe and bake in at 13x9-in. pan. Variation: For outrageously good pumpkin bars, substitute canned pumpkin for the banana and add 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger. Outstanding! Find more recipes and ideas on my blog at”
