BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP BARS


~ Amy Alonzo

3/4 c. margarine, softened
2/3 c. sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 t. baking powder
1 egg
2-3 bananas, mashed
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 c. chocolate chips
2/3 c. chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13-inch pan.

Blend margarine, sugar, brown sugar, and baking powder until creamy. Mix in egg, bananas, and vanilla. Add flour, chocolate chips, and nuts. Spread in pan and bake 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Notes: This is still moist and sweet if you use whole wheat flour. We've left out the chocolate chips on occasion for a plain banana bar, which is also good. We never add nuts.

Mango? I never would have thought of doing that!

I haven't talked to Amy in years, otherwise I'd pass your message along. Maybe I'll just have to make a batch of her bars instead. :)
