"Weekday" Banana Cake

I named it myself. :)
It was a Monday night.
I had some old bananas.
I was craving something sweet.
But didn't want to go totally overboard.
Then I found this on the good 'ol internet.
It's yummy.
And quite healthy!

Beat for 6-7 minutes until thick and light brown.
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar (I use 1/4 c. brown sugar and 1/4 c. maple syrup)

With mixer on low speed add:
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup olive or canola oil
2 mashed, ripe bananas
1/2 cup applesauce

Add in just until combined:
1 1/2 cups brown rice flour (or regular flour)
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
handful of chocolate chips if you wish

The recipe says to bake in a greased 9x5 pan for 40 minutes. Mine took longer than that the first time. Today I made it in my mini muffin pan and baked for 17 minutes.
