Bananas Foster Bars

Bananas Foster is one of my favorite desserts; banana, with sweet, and rum, is just divine!  But it’s not a common dish to find on menus and making it at home seems so complicated.  These bars are not complicated, but they are wonderful.

Yield: 12 servings; Prep Time: 30 minutes; Cook Time: 35 minutes

bars, wet

  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 medium bananas should yield 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup plain, unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tsp good dark rum (I recommend Cruzan Dark)

bars, dry

  • 1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

for topping

  • 4 Tbsp Earth Balance Buttery Spread (or other vegan butter substitute)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the wet ingredients until well combined.
  3. Fold dry ingredients into wet.  Set aside.
  4. In medium bowl, cut together topping ingredients using two knives.  Ideally you will achieve a homogenous mixture of “pebbles,” but it’s ok if some of your chunks are a little larger.
  5. Pour batter into a greased 8×8 inch baking dish.
  6. Spoon topping evenly over the top.
  7. Bake 33-35 minutes.
  8. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
