Vegan Banana Bar Recipe

Banana Bars

I didn’t use up all of my sweetened condensed milk from my cheesecake so I built a recipe around the leftovers. I’ll put the ingredients in the recipe so that you don’t have to hunt around. Honestly, I was surprised that this recipe was such a hit. I just kind of threw things together and it worked out great.

I love banana so including it in the  recipe was an easy choice. I’ve also been rocking the coconut lately, it must be the weather. I knew I wanted chocolate so everything was married together in a 8×8 pan and they lived happily ever after.

  1. Coconut is one of my weaknesses so this recipe is on my list to make very soon. Sounds delicious and looks very easy and is a great snack for a picnic. Thanks so much for sharing with Foodie Friends Friday Picnic Party this week.

    Look forward to seeing you again soon,
