  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Stir in the mayonnaise and bananas. Stir together the flour, 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 and walnuts.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf 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.

This recipe is really good - I don't normally use shortening, so I substituted butter and it came out great.

Unusual mix! Added a tsp of banana extract for an extra boost of flavor and coated the chocolate chips with flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pan. Have made it for numerous camping and 4 wheeling trips for a group of hungry men. All gave me the thumbs up!!!

I hate when my family goes out and buys storebought mixes for banana bread. It's disgusting. However, with this recipe, I think I have stopped them for good. I substitute butter for shortening, use half white sugar and half brown, halve the chocolate chips, nix the walnuts, and add one teaspoon of vanilla extract. I was skeptical at first, but the mayonnaise makes all of the difference! Next time I'll try cutting back on the fat and use apple sauce to replace some of the butter. Can it get any better?
