Caroline says:

I read a tip online about baking banana bread in a 9 x 13 pan. The mommy indicated her kids were much more apt to each it when it looked like brownies (shaped like squares). This week I made some with the W4DD recipe and it came out great...baked at 350 for 30 minutes. I got 24 squares so the portions are smaller (lower in calories). I left some in a container and then put the rest in individual servings in sandwich bags and then in a freezer bag so pull out as desired. I never would have thought to bake it in a 9 x 13 pan before and was thrilled with the results.
