I have never known that a simple banana bread that’s already delicious on its own can still be a million times mouthful. This banana bread bars, yes you heard it right, bars with brown butter frosting is easy and quick to make. A total game-changer for all the banana lovers out there! Or even if you are not a fan, I’m sure that one bite will make you crazy and you will be in love!


To make the Bars:

1 ½ cups of white sugar
1 cup sour cream
½ cup of butter softened
2 eggs
1 ¾ cups of mashed ripe bananas
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ teaspoon salt
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

For the Frosting:

½ cup butter
4 cups of confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C. And grease and flour a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan.

Step 2: Mix the white sugar, sour cream, half a cup of softened butter, and eggs in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Stir in the bananas and two teaspoons of vanilla extract. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix for a minute, then, add in the walnuts. Beat the batter until incorporated.

Step 3: Empty the batter into the greased and floured pan. Spread the batter evenly.

Step 4: Place the pan inside the preheated oven. Bake for 27 minutes until golden. Let it cool.

Step 5: Melt half of the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat when bubbling and golden brown.

Step 6: For the frosting, whisk the confectioner’s sugar, milk, and vanilla extract into the melted butter. Mix until you get a smooth frosting consistency.

Step 7: Spread the frosting over the cooled banana bars. Serve and enjoy!
