Like I said, you might have to play around with the bananas a little bit. i'm not sure what a "small" banana really is.
but my advice is to err on the side of less liquid rather than too much, because adding a lot of flour ends up making a bland finished product.

If anyone makes any adjustments that work well, i'd love to hear about them.
