Banana Bars

Recently a friend sent me a note saying she had made these and I've been craving them ever since! For a lighter version see the substitutions at the bottom. You could also try yogurt instead of sour cream!

Growing up we had Banana Bars just as often as Banana Bread.

2 C flour
1 1/2 c white sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 c softened butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 egg
1/2 c sour cream
2 overripe bananas, mashed

Combine all but egg sour cream and bananas. Create a crumble mixture. Reserve 1/2 c for crumb topping. Then take 1-1/2 cups and press into bottom of 9x13 pan. With remaining crumble add remaining ingredients and make a batter. Add to pan, then top with crumb topping. Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


ps-I've also made this recipe with fat free sour cream and splenda products and whole wheat flour. It was good too.
