Add the bananas and mash with the back of a fork until almost incorporated.
Stir in the sugar, salt, vanilla, and eggs. Add the baking soda in

This was very, very good. I didn't have any unsweetened chocolate in the
house so I used the semisweet chocolate chips I had. Since I decreased the
sugar...it wasn't very sweet which I enjoyed.
