Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe came from the Chocolate Cafe last year. Have made it several times and am always ask for the recipe.

Monkey Bars is a great combination of banana and

chocolate flavors. Kids of all ages will enjoy this one!

1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (3 medium)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Powdered sugar (optional)


Turn oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch

baking pan with a little shortening. In a large mixer

pieces. Spread batter in the greased baking pan.
