Banana Applesauce Muffins

This is another great muffin recipe from Canada's 150 Best Diabetes Desserts, which, as I've mentioned, is my new favourite cookbook. I think that these are my favourite of the muffins that I've made from this cookbook so far. The muffins are light and moist and just plain yummy.  Logan loves these and ate 1 1/2 of them yesterday and has already had a full one today between breakfast and lunch.

2 C whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/3 C)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 C unsweetened applesauce
1/2 C sugar
1/4 C vegetable oil

1.  In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

2.  In a medium bowl, combine bananas, egg, applesauce, sugar and oil.  Stir into flour mixture until just combined.

3.  Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups.

4.  Bake in 400 degree Farenheit oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

Makes 12 muffins (we got 16)
