Frosted Banana Bars

I occasionally bring different treats into my husband’s work. I bring a variety of carmel chocolate pretzels and apples, cookies, popcorn mixes, cinnamon rolls, and many other things. But for some reason these banana bars seem to be their favorite! My husband always texts me within 30 minutes and says that they whole pan is already gone. They ae different from other banana bars I have tried. The sour cream in them makes them moist and perfect! I love them, but I think they love them even more then I do! They are my go-to bar recipe when I am trying to feed a crowd a easy dessert! Try them at your next bridal or baby shower or BBQ! They will be a HIT for sure!
