Applesauce Banana Muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour (or 1 cup whole wheat, and 1 cup white)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. organic cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
2 organic eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract (made without high fructose corn syrup)
1 cup unsweetened, organic applesauce
3/4 cup mashed banana (approx. 2 ripe bananas)
3 Tbsp. olive oil, organic
Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray muffin pans with non-stick cooking spray, or line with muffin baking cups.
In a large bowl, stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar together. Add the eggs, vanilla and applesauce. Beat well. Add the bananas and oil. Stir until moistened.
Pour batter into prepared tins.
Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on rack until served.
Yield: 14-18 muffins (depending on size of bananas used, and if not measured)
Note: I used parchment paper for a few muffins, when I ran out of liners. The muffins did not stick one bit. They do stick to the liners. I will be cutting some liners from parchment paper for muffins like these (that tend to stick).
I have also made a recipe from Allrecipes for a Banana Bread with applesauce. I used one reviewers suggestion, and used less sugar, and used chocolate chips. Yum!
