These Monkey Squares are soft and moist banana bread bars with browned butter frosting.
Bananas are a hot commodity in my house. My husband snags them when they’re still green and freezes them for his protein shakes. Something I don’t really understand but I’m sure he’s explained to me the scientific reason why underipe bananas are better for his workout shakes. Then there’s my little baby Wes who eats one for breakfast every morning.
This week Wes boycotted bananas and the bananas sitting on my counter were too ripe for John’s muscles so I found myself looking at a bunch of overipe bananas getting more ripe by the minute. My usual go-to is my favorite Banana Bread. Ohhh, it’s good. But today I made these Monkey Squares. It’s supermoist sour cream banana squares topped with a browned butter frosting. I found the recipe from a comment from a reader on another blog. I love finding recipes in obscure places. It’s a family favorite recipe…my favorite kind of recipe.
