These tasty banana bars are a combination between banana bread and breakfast muffins. If you feel up for some easy baking this weekend, these are definitely a must try! In the process I thought, why not add some frosting? Peanut butter mixed with maple syrup? I mean.. to die for. Even if you don’t feel like baking these banana bars of goodness, make the peanut butter frosting and eat it with a spoon. Maybe? I did yesterday and I don’t feel bad about it at all!

- Cover a 9x9-inch baking pan with parchment paper and pour mixture over paper. Smooth it out evenly.

- While that's baking, make the peanut butter frosting. In a small mixing bowl, add peanut butter and maple syrup. Mix until combined.

Fifteen minutes was NOT long enough for these to cook. I\’m working on 30 minutes right now and hoping they\’ll be cooked through. Still, it looks and smells good.
