Snickerdoodle Banana Bars

I doubled this recipe and put it in a 9 x 13 pan.  It was quite tasty.  Make sure to bake it long enough so that the middle doesn't sink.....ask me how I know this!  35 minutes wasn't quite long enough when doubled.
Snickerdoodle Banana Bars

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mashed banana
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup cinnamon chips

crumb topping

1/3 c. brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter

1. Heat the oven to 375. Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.

2. In a mixing bowl combine the butter, sour cream and sugars, mixing until smooth for 30 seconds. Add the vanilla and egg and mix until smooth. Add the banana and mix for a couple of seconds.

3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt. Whisk together and add to the mixing bowl. Mix everything together just until the flour doesn't remain.Toss the chips in about a teaspoon of flour and shake off the excess. Add the cinnamon chips and fold into the batter. Pour the batter into the baking pan.

4. In a small bowl add the butter, flour sugar and cinnamon. Using your hands, smoosh the mixture together. Sprinkle over the cake.

5. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until done.
