Instructions: Heat oven to 350. Lightly coat 9" square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Mix together flour and baking powder in small bowl. Beat together banana, brown sugar and granulated sugar in bowl until blended. Add buttermilk, egg, oil and vanilla, beating well. Stir in flour mixture just until blended. Fold in nuts. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack. Meanwhile, stir together confectioners sugar and water in small cup until smooth. Add more water if needed, a drop at a time. Drizzle over cooled cake. Cut into 12 bars.
NOTES : I guess these are called monkey bars because you are supposed to go ape for them (vbg), or maybe its because they have bananas in them. Either way they are very lowfat and taste pretty good. I had them in the cookie category, but they are more like a cake.
