Why We Love These Banana Bars

When I realized this recipe for semi-homemade banana bars would work, I was SO excited because it’s just so genius! Who would have guessed you can make 3-ingredient banana bars with Pillsbury cookie dough, overripe bananas, and chocolate chips?

Spoiler alert: You can, and they are amazing – there is something magical about these chocolate chip banana bars. 

I always have overripe bananas on my counter and in my freezer. I’m constantly making banana muffins and banana bread, but when I made these, I happened to have a roll of cookie dough that had to get used. I’d read somewhere that you can mix the two and get a delicious banana dessert, but I didn’t believe it until I tried it.

Combining premade refrigerated cookie dough with bananas gives you the BEST banana bars that are like a cross between a blondie and a cake. Add a rich and decadent chocolate ganache topping, and no one will ever guess how easy these are to make.

These bars are like a fluffy cookie cake bar that is perfectly sweet and super full of banana flavor. They remind a lot of a frosted banana bar, but with chocolate chips instead of a cream cheese frosting.

They’re perfect without anything on top, but I added a chocolate glaze because…why not? Everything is better with more chocolate and more frosting, especially when it’s chocolate and banana.
