Gluten Free Dirty Blonde Banana Bars

Have you ever had a recipe idea in your head and the first time you tried, it completely failed! So was the case with these babies. Jen had dreamed of a gluten free (not because it had to be...But rather just because she thought it would be an interesting experiment) sweet and salty banana bar and originally got a mostly salty...yet, texturally delightful treat. After trial and error...we bring you our Recipe for : Gluten Free Dirty Blonde Banana Bars. Trust us they are irresistible!

Peel and mash bananas....B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Cue back round music...we just had to 🙂 

In separate bowl melt butter, as the butter melts whisk in the eggs. Add Butter and give it a whirl.
