Cream Cheese Frosted Banana Bars

These bars are a delightful treat! They are so good, you will even want to eat them for breakfast! One bar is 4 points plus, but since you may have trouble stopping at one, two bars are 7 points plus. I suggest making these when you are having friends over or I suggest sharing them with your neighbors!

Makes 36 ( 4 points +)

  • 3 T. butter, softened
  • 1-½ c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 medium bananas, mashed
  • ¼ c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • dash of salt


  • 3 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 3 T. butter, softened
  • 3 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 2 - 4 T. skim milk
Preheat oven to 350 and coat a 15 x 10 x 1" jelly roll pan with nonstick spray.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until crumbly. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the bananas, applesauce and vanilla, mixing well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to banana mixture. Mix until combined. Spread in prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until done. Cool completely before frosting.

For frosting, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add vanilla, salt and powdered sugar. Add milk as needed to achieve spreading consistency. Frost bars and cut into 36 equal pieces.
