Banana Banana Bread

I had a few bananas that were at the perfect ripeness to make banana bread, so I looked up a new recipe. This one turned out pretty good, but I think I may not have had enough bananas (I had 3) to make 2 1/3 c. That made me have to mix it more, and I think it ended up hurting the batter. It was still good, but definitely not the best banana bread I've ever had.
