Filled the tins with an ice-cream scoop which made them be a good size. Made 11. Using the mayonnaise, made the texture moist, but doughy and not cake-like. Should have not added so many choc. chips, drowned out the banana taste.

These went over very well - I forgot the nuts and everyone still liked them. Didn't take long to disappear!!
