Banana Chocolate Bars

I wanted something sweet to take to work for an afternoon snack this week, but I didn't want it to be too rich (I actually want to be able to work through the afternoon and not be stuck in a food coma!). These did the trick. The bars were chewy and fudgy, and I didn't need a nap after eating them. :) Next time I will add some finely chopped walnuts for some crunch.

6 Tablespoons tub margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 medium bananas, mashed
1 egg white
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 pan with non-stick spray.
Cream together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the mashed bananas and egg white until well-blended. 
Gradually add in the flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt.
Pour dough into the 9x9 pan. Bake for 18 minutes. Cool completely before slicing.
Yields 16 bars.
