What to do with two overripe bananas?

Make banana muffins out them, that's what! Or banana bread. Or banana cake. Lots of choices, but I think this one is the best. These turn out deliciously moist, due to the extra ingredient of mayonnaise compared to other recipes I've seen. I always try to use real mayonnaise, it tastes better. This originally called for 1/2 tsp vanilla, but I think more is always better, and usually add more than called for in the recipe. This makes 12 large muffins. The tops will be darker brown when done.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 cups flour, sifted
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup mayonnaise
2 large bananas, mashed
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine dry ingredients and add mayonnaise. Add mashed bananas and beat until smooth. Add chocolate chips and vanilla.

Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes.
