Banana cake squares with butter cream frosting

October 20, 2017

I will never let over ripe banana’s go to waste, there is always a new recipe to create and these banana cake squares with frosting are so fluffy and delicious! Sometimes I just throw things in a bowl and hope for the best, I won’t lie..it can be a disaster sometimes, although my husband will still eat my fails lol, he will eat anything! 😉 But sometimes the result makes me so happy I winged it.. These tasty baked up treats are just 4 smart points each and I highly recommend trying them..

4SP/2PP each
Ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp egg whites (I use from the carton)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 medium banana's (mashed, about 1 cup)
  • ½ cup 0% plain greek yogurt (non greek will work as well)
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • FOR THE FROSTING
  • ¾ Tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ¾ Tbsp milk
  • ¼ cup icing sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F, spray a 9 inch baking dish with some cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl beat together your egg, egg whites and brown sugar. Add in mashed banana, yogurt, apple sauce and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Stir in flour, baking powder & soda and pour batter into your baking dish.
  4. Bake in oven for 28 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile make your frosting, mix melted butter and brown sugar together, stir in milk then add icing sugar and stir till creamy. It does not give you a lot of icing but enough to cover squares. Store frosting in fridge till ready to use.
  6. Let squares cool before removing from dish, spread with frosting and cut into 16 squares, 4 down and 4 across.
  7. Makes 16 squares at 4 smart points each (2 PP, old WW program) *Store in sealed container, best stored in fridge. *Note.. If not needing all the squares at once feel free to frost them individually as the frosting will keep better in a dish and not on squares. You can leave the icing of and these squares would be 2 smart points each.

    How are you tracking these in WW? I’ve typed everything Banana in and nothing even close matches. Just curious what others do.

    This looks delicious! I just stumbled across a link to your site from a WW group on FB.

    I was going to ask what size baking dish you used, and realized when skimming I’d missed it. So thanks for sharing and giving all the info!! Can’t wait to make it.

    This might be a dumb question but what is icing sugar? Is that just powdered sugar? Thank you in advance!

    This is so good! I made it without the frosting for my boyfriend who must have some sort of sweet/quick bread every morning and we both loved it. So moist and fluffy. Great job!
