*Note: I let the bananas thaw a bit, peeled them, chopped them up, then let them continue thawing. Some of the liquid separates when you have frozen the bananas, and I know a lot of people drain it, but I just mash it all up with the liquid because I figure it came from the banana and getting rid of it might affect the taste and texture.
Here is the recipe I based it on.
1/2 C butter, softened
1 C white sugar
1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
1 T mayonnaise (I actually used the Kraft mayo with olive oil, because that's what we had on hand)
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 C all purpose flour
1/2 C whole wheat flour
1/4 t salt
1/2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 C semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9"x5" loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the applesauce, mayonnaise, and bananas. In a separate bowl, stir together the flours, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Blend the flour mixture into the banana mixture; stir just enough to evenly combine. Fold in the chocolate chips.
3. Bake at 350F until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 to 75 minutes. Cool loaf in the pan for 20 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
