Whole Wheat Banana Bread Muffins

Okay so baby girl is obsessed .. and I mean OBSESSED... with muffins. She can throw down when it comes to food. So lately we have been making banana bread into muffins.

And don't let the whole wheat and applesauce fool you. These muffins are healthy AND full of flavor!

Whole Wheat Banana Bread
Recipe from: kingarthurflour
Makes 12 muffins or 1 loaf

1/2 c. applesauce
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 medium to large bananas, about 1 pound
1/4 cup honey
2 large eggs
2 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease your muffin tin and set aside.

Next in a large bowl beat together the applesauce and brown sugar. Add the vanilla, baking soda, salt, and bananas and mix until combined. Next add the honey and eggs. Finally add the flour and walnuts (optional).

Place batter into prepared pan by dividing evenly among 12 muffin tins. (The batter will fill each tin to the top.) Bake the muffins for 20 minutes.
