Making banana bread less moist without reducing # bananas

I have been using the following recipe to make banana bread (I got it somewhere on this board and modified it slightly although I don't remember exactly what I changed) and it's been coming out a little on the moist side.

We love moist banana bread but it's a little too gooey even though fully cooked and cooled (a tester comes out clean). What can I do without reducing the number of bananas, to dry up the next batch a bit? I thought adding more flour might do it but I was worried about upsetting the balance of leavening agents.

2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar (a mixture of white and brown)
4 medium smashed bananas
1/3 cup of milk, poured over lemon juice
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg
Chopped walnuts/chocolate
