Best Family Recipe!

I can’t believe I still haven’t shared my family recipe for banana nut bread on my blog! This recipe has been in our family for over 15 years and for a good reason. I remember baking this bread when I was much younger and just starting out in the kitchen. The aroma of this bread is simply amazing. For these banana nut bars, I wanted to take my family recipe and bring it up a notch!

The Cream Cheese Frosting

No banana nut bar recipe is complete without a good cream cheese frosting on top, in my opinion! Check out my in-depth video tutorial for making the perfect ‘5-Ingredient Cream Cheese Frosting’!

All the Toppings

For added crunchiness, you can also add my simple brown sugar pecan crumble topping. It’s super easy to make and just makes these bars that much better! And, try adding a drizzle of caramel sauce over the bars when you’re ready to enjoy them. Use my easy home-made caramel sauce for the best tasting results!

You won’t believe how fluffy and light these banana nut bars are!
