Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place melted shortening aside. Sift into a large bowl the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mash the bananas in a bowl and add the shortening, nuts, cherries, chocolate chips and beaten eggs. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients all at once. Stir only to moisten all the ingredients. Pour into a well-greased loaf pan or 5 mini loaf pans and bake for 45-50 minutes for loaf pans or 20 minutes for mini loaf pans.
