    Soooo good!

    Meghan Horvath from Chicago

    I've made these bars multiple times and I'm always so impressed with how they turn out. On my first attmept, I was afraid they would come out dry, but they were super MOIST with just the right amount of chocolate. Great flavor!

    Definitely Good

    ANGELA MINER from , San Diego, Ca.

    Really good, missing a bite to it, maybe add walnuts next time. Son loved it, will make again

    OMG!! Great Banana Mini Bars!

    Doris Andrews from Palos Verdes Estates, CA

    These bars were easy to make and gosh, they were so good!. I added cranberries and pecans to the chocolate chips. The cranberries offset the sweetness to make a tasty surprise. I will certainly make this again. It's a nice twist from plain old banana bread.

    So good!

    Nancy Parks from Albuquerque, NM

    My kids and I love these bars. They're easy to make, and I swear that every place I take them to, everyone loves them. The banana and chocolate combination is just wonderful!

    Moist, Delicious With Ice Cream!

    Jonathan Brown from Jacksonville, FL

    I just took them out from the oven; they are dangerously addictive! So good. A terrific texture and oh so easy! I added a half-cup of cocoa to make them even more chocolatey! Make 'em!

    Yummy

    BECKY CARLSON from Blooming Prairie, MN

    This recipe is awesome. Instead of 2 cups of chocolate chips, I used 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of peanut butter chips. Fabulous!!

    Yum

    Trish Williams from Tracy, CA

    Yummy

    Leslie Thompson from WA

    I made these and they came out great. The banana is great with mini morsel. My husband took some to work and the guys were asking for more. Will make again and again.

  •  Star(s)

    Great flavor!

    Mary Granger from LAKE ZURICH, IL

    My bananas were a bit larger than what the recipe called for so the bars turned out a bit mushy and didn't seem fully baked even though I let it bake for 45 minutes, but the flavor was so good. Can't wait to try them again with the right size bananas.

    picture looks great

    Loretta Estes from Rose Hill, IA

    I have not tried these yet, but the picture looks great. I would have never thought to use ripe bananas in this way.

    delicioso, oh so

    RHODA ENIAFE from Upper Marlboro, MD

    I enjoy making the bar, easy, quick and delicious. Just amazing recipe. I reduce the Morsel from 2 cups to 1/2 cup and still taste amazing. I will absolutely make it again.

    Banana mini morsels bars

    Marilyn Padilla from Kearny, NJ

    Brought these to a New Year's eve party and they were a hit. Easy enough to make and a good way to use up over ripe bananas that no one wants to eat!!

    Kids LOVE them!

    Colleen Delery from Crestview, FL

    My son did a science project using 24 bananas. Prior to beginning his testing I explained I would assist with his project if he assisted me with baking or making something with the bananas when they were finally ripe. Both of us wanted to make banana pudding but quickly realized this wouldn't transport to school easily. This recipe was EASY to make and GREATLY enjoyed by the tweens in his class. Thank you for this "bonding" recipe!!!

    Pamela Lewandowski from Baton Rouge, LA

    These bars were fantastic! They work well even if you're missing some of the ingredients--this is a dream recipe! I loved them and plan to have these ready for gatherings. They are somewhat different from the norm, but are so great that they will be loved by everyone!

    Cake-like and yummy

    Michelle Shevy from Fort Worth, TX

    I've made this recipe for years. The bars are so soft and moist. And this recipe is a great alternative to banana bread for using up older bananas.

  •  Star(s)

    Not that tasty!

    VICKY HADLEY from Carrollton, KY

    Not sure if I baked them enough, but they were extra chewy and not that tasty. My kids didn't even like them.

    Banana Delicious

    DONNA MARIE Schlampp from JOHANNESBURG, MI

    I had 3 Bananas that were turning brown, Just hate throwing them away, so i came to Very Best baking.com and found this yummy easy recipe. I didnt have mini morsels so went with a mixture of choc and butterscotch chips regular size. I love it! next batch I will try a few crushed walnuts and cherries.

  •  Star(s)

    Nice, but not a cookie

    Kimberly Doncaster from Burnsville, MN

    I made these the other day as I had a bunch of overripe bananas and wanted to make something other than banana bread. I ended up using cinnamon chips instead of chocolate, and the result was very tasty. However, I was expecting these to be more like a cookie bar in consistancy, but it was really more brownie like. But again, the flavor was nice.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy Easy Treat!

    Sonya Warren from RICHARDSON, TX

    Made my first batch of these yesterday. OH! They are scrumptious. Friends and family loved 'em. It's hard to stop eating them, they are so moist. I used a bag of regular sized chocolate chips because I like a good 'bite' of chocolate. Worked just fine.

    These were very easy to make and tasted amazing. I would put fewer chocolate morsels next time, but other than that, the recipe is great.

    best banana bars

    Kelley Brown from PROVIDENCE VILLAGE, TX

    I made these with regular size morsels. for extra yumminess I used a package of white chocolate morsels and a package of peanut butter/chocolate swirled morsels. Then I baked them for 25 minutes. With a dash of powdered sugar on top of the bars I passed these out to my neighbors! These are delicious! I plan on taking the rest on our camping trip tomorrow.

    My kids Luv 'em......

    ROSEMARY FAHLEN from ROCKFORD, MI

    For years I have been making these mini-morsel bars!!! I always have bananas & for some reason the ripen faster than eaten!?! So about 5 years ago I found this recipe on the back of the bag. My kids & their friends LOVE 'em. Just be careful not to inhale while taking a bite!! The powdered sugar on top can be mean!! I even make them for my kids friends as a great gift!! {:

    THESE ROCK!

    Easy to make - Very yummy - WAY good! I will definitely make this again!

    My kids loved them.

    T Yetter from VICTOR, MT

    My 4 year old especially loved them, and he is not into sweets too much. My older kids came home to the wonderful smell and of course had to try them. It was a great way to use up the over riped bananas we had. They were nice and soft and not too sweet.

  •  Star(s)

    banana bars

    Lar from

    These bars were quite tasty, but a bit too sweet in my opinion (which is saying something....I have an incredible sweet tooth). To be fair, I didn't follow the recipe exactly as written; I did omit the powdered sugar, but I used butterscotch chips instead of the mini chocolate ones. The flavors worked well together, but I'm pretty sure my substitution contributed to the over-the-top sweetness of my effort. I will definitely make these again, but I think next time I will probably eliminate the chips completely and add chopped walnuts instead.

    good title

    Nora Campbell from LIVINGSTON, TX

    My grandkids loved these and so easy since they were bars.

  •  Star(s)

    tasty

    Angel Perkins from DAYTON, OH

    Although we found these easy to make and they tasted good, I was disappointed in the baking time and turn out. I had baked them for the longest suggested time, they appeared golden brown and a toothpick in the center came out clean. However, the center section was not cooked after all. Once cooled, they were way too soft. The outer sections were fine, but the inner section had to be pitched.

    Great recipe!

    Easy recipe to make using up over-ripened bananas. Liked the different taste from banana bread recipes. Highly recommended.

    Good cakey bar cookie

    MARIE in NYC from

    This was a bit more cakey than I was expected but tasted great. I substituted NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Morsels for the mini morsels and omitted the powdered sugar. Very tasty and I would make again.

  •  Star(s)

    Great!

    I made this for my daughter's class and it received rave reviews. Not only did her teacher request the recipe, but several others did as well. It is very easy to make and very kid-friendly. We will definitely add this to our favorites list!

  •  Star(s)

    very good

    kathleen johnson from COTTAGE GROVE, MN

    I had banana's and chocolate chips so I thought I would try this recipe. It was very easy to make. I loved it and so did my co-workers and family. I also had leftover frosting from rolls I made and used that on the top of the bars instead of powdered sugar and it turned out well. I will definitely make this again.

    Banana Mini Morsel Bars

    Judy Bailey from Altamont, NY

    Yummy! And I not a big fan of bananas. They traveled nicely. A mild banana flavor, and i used milk chocolate morsels versus semi-sweet. A great alternative for ripe bananas instead of banana bread. Also a healthy kick.

    Delicious!

    SARA CAMPBELL from Morris, IL

    Absolutely wonderful! Easy to make and easier to eat!!
