Will it make a really big difference if I do not use the vanilla extract? I do not feel like going out to get any and I want to make some of this tonight.

Thanks in advance!!!

Try substituting 1/2 of the canola oil with peanut butter. I make a banana/peanut butter/chocolate chip bread that is wonderful!

Can I make these into muffins? Does something need to be changed? It seems the answer is obviously yes; the only reason I ask is because I make banana muffins with a banana bread recipe and they're always a bit chewy...

My guess would be that you would just cook them for a shorter period of time - let us know how they turn out.
btw - chewy sounds yummy (I things a bit on the undercooked side!) :)
