Banana Chocolate Chip Bars

Banana Chocolate Chip Bars

3/4 c butter, softened
2/3 c sugar
2/3 c packed brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 c mashed ripe bananas (2-3 medium)
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 and grease cookie sheet.  In a bowl mix butter with mixer for 30 seconds.  Add sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Beat until combined.  Add in egg, bananas, and vanilla until combined.  Mix in flour, then stir in chocolate chips.  Spread in cookie sheet.  Bake for 20-23 minutes or until golden.  Makes 36 bars.

We had ripe bananas on the counter (what else is new) and we had already had plenty of milkshakes so I decided I needed to do something else with the rest of the bananas.  I looked in my trusty  Better Homes & Gardens cookbook and I found this recipe.  It was fast and easy and it made a lot.  So I took a plate of goodies to a few of my neighbors and we ate the rest.  Plus the best part was we didn't have to throw away our bananas.
