banana applesauce muffins

Bananas would be a staple in my diet if we had any at home at all times. It just goes well for anything, especially with oatmeal since it acts as a sweetener. It starts my mornings on the right foot, but is a hot commodity in my house. Whenever we have any laying around, they don't stay that way. They can disappear in a day or two. That's just how much we love them. I was lucky to have three overripe bananas laying around so I decided to make banana muffins!

Unfortunately, I did not have enough with my three small ripe bananas, but I decided to compensate with some applesauce. It still turned out really banana-y (if that is even a word). You can't really taste the applesauce, but I think it did contribute to making this muffin very soft, maybe a little too much for a muffin. I think the batter would have been better for a cake. It still makes a yummy breakfast!

*I only got 11 muffins with this recipe, but I think it's because I put too much batter in each muffin tin.
