Cocoa Banana Bars Recipe

I am always looking for new recipes using bananas because despite my healthy eating intentions, I never seem to eat them before they are brown. These were a delicious treat with just the right hint of banana {and without tons of sugar and butter}!

  1. I made this today! I had exactly three bananas left that no one was about to eat. Perfect recipe! It was very easy to put together. The only thing I did different from the recipe was add vanilla and almond extract along with some slivered almonds. Tasty!
