Banana Walnut Cake Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Banana Walnut Cake Bars “Another oldie but goodie recipe that is a banana cake bar so moist and delicious, yet firm enough not to fall apart when you pick it up!

 NO steps to this one, just mix it all together!  

A great way to easily and quickly use up three overripe bananas.  

 It only has one cup of flour, so it is a low cake bar, more like the size of a brownie.     Enjoy!
