I inevitably end up with overripe banana's in my fruit bowl at the end of the week and after getting a bit bored with my usual banana bread recipe I went in search of something a bit different. What I found was a lovely recipe for Banana and Cinnamon Blondies on Ren's blog. However, the kids are not great fans of cinnamon so I adapted the recipe from the original and these are what I ended up with. Lovely, moist bananary squares - perfect for a mid morning snack.
