Banana Muffins

I've been in sort of a rut with snacks for the kids. It is so easy (and healthy) to just give them a piece of fruit and call it good. But, lately, I've been wanting to spice things up a bit. I found this simple, healthy recipe and the kids loved it. I loved that it doesn't have any butter or oil and only 1/4 c. of sugar. The original recipe was for mini-muffins. Since I don't have a mini-muffin pan, I made full size- which was a good thing because my kids each ate 3 full sized muffins!

Banana Muffins

2-3 bananas, smashed
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. unsweetened applesauce
1 egg

1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
1 c. flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine first 4 ingredients and mix well. Stir in dry ingredients, just until combined and spoon into muffin tins. Bake for about 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
