Banana Applesauce Muffins

Yay for this recipe!    It's solved my banana problems--I always have 2 bananas that are overripe.  Every recipe I come across calls for 3 and it's just too much work to divide out the recipe according to 2.  I made these today and my sugar-loving child stated, "These are good, Mom!"  There's not much sugar in these, so feel free to add more, up to a 1/2 cup.  Each muffin is about 100 calories.  You could add blueberries, strawberries, peaches, etc.
Banana Applesauce Muffins
2 ripe bananas
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

In a bowl, mash bananas with sugar until well combined.  Add all other ingredients and stir until just blended.  Pour batter into muffin cups.  Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.  Makes approx 10-12 muffins.
