Banana Bread Bars with Healthy Honey Frosting


Banana Bread Bars with Healthy Honey Frosting

This recipe is a favourite of ours but I tend to avoid making it purely because my old recipe called for a brown butter frosting which contained icing sugar.  #1 I hardly ever use any kind of processed sugar in my baking (just honey and maple syrup) and #2 the Banana bread bar recipe is a very clean recipe so it kills me to junk it up with icing sugar!

I've searched before but I decided to search again for ideas on how to make a icing sugar free Healthy frosting and I gathered a bunch of ideas!  You can check out that recipe here!

Once I knew I could make this whole recipe 100% clean baked I started to make the Banana Bread Bar!
