Sunday Sweets ~ Banana Chocolate Chip Bars


A couple of over-ripe bananas…and it’s Sunday Sweet time for sure.

One of my family’s fav’s is banana chocolate chip bars. Super easy to make and perfect when I’ve bought too many bananas this week. With a few staple pantry ingredients I can throw together a fabulous treat.

This is my mom’s recipe. I still use the recipe card that I wrote the recipe on in green ink when I was a little girl and by now…it has plenty of batter splatters on it.

 

Banana Chocolate Chip Bars:

In small bowl mix together:

            2 cups Flour

            2 tsp Baking Powder

            ½ tsp Salt

 In larger bowl cream:

            2/3 cup Shortening (I used butter flavored Crisco for better flavor)

            2/3 cup Sugar

            2/3 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar

 Beat in:

      1 tsp pure Vanilla

            1 Egg

            1 cup mashed Banana

            1 cup Chocolate Chips (I use mini-chips)

 Mix  wet and dry ingredients.

Grease your baking pan. My mom makes these in a jellyroll pan and bakes for 20 minutes.

My family likes them a thick and chewy so I use a 13×9 baking pan and bake for 30 minutes. Cool and Enjoy!

Sunday Sweets ~ Chocolate Chip Scones


Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Scones Warm from the Oven

Gather up the ingredients.

It’s the 2nd day of spring…and yes, we woke up to ice and snow…not my favorite…but what a wonderful time to stay in our PJ’s with a hot cup of coffee and a warm brown sugar chocolate chip scone with a warm fire blazing! Yes, this morning was that morning…and a perfect time for Sunday Sweets.

So I gathered all the ingredients together and got ready for a messy kitchen. Scones are messy – I just have to dig in with my hands and not just use a pastry cutter when mixing…but the finished product is so worth it. Light, flakey, scrumptious. I always use coarse decorator sugar to top my scones. I found I had run out of the plain sugar this morning but I do have red…thus, the festive red color of the finished product below.
