Banana Bars

I got this recipe from my co-worker Lupe and I just love it. Now let me tell you about Lupe. Lupe is not a baker, when she talks about baking her family starts to laugh and beg her please don’t. Whenever I bake something and then take it to work she always asks me if there is flour in it and if I baked it in the oven. She is the only person I know who doesn’t know the deference from bake and broil on her oven. She once cleaned her oven knobs and then she put them back on wrong, then decided to bake some cookies then proceeded to broil her cookies instead of baking them. She once caught her oven on fire when she was making can cinnamon rolls. Her latest disaster was when she got her nails done (acrylic) then she caught them on fire when she used her nails instead of tongs to flip her tortilla. Now you are probably wondering if this recipe is any good if I got it from Lupe, you are just going to have to trust me they are just so moist and yummy. She told me she got this recipe from a family member.
