Apple-Banana Muffins

Yummy! I adapted this recipe from Passionate Homemaking.  We ate them for breakfast in the morning and then threw some frosting on to turn them into cupcakes for dessert that evening!

*1/3 c. butter, melted and cooled
*1/3 c. applesauce
1 c. brown sugar
*2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. yogurt
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. ripe bananas
2 apples, peeled, cored and grated

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix together dry ingredients in small bowl.  In a large bowl, cream together butter, applesauce, and eggs.  Beat in vanilla and yogurt.  Add dry ingredients to wet and stir just until combined.  Fold in apples and bananas.  Fill greased/floured or lined muffin tins with batter and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

* You can use all butter or all applesauce if you want... Next time I will use 2/3 cup applesauce and omit the butter.
* I didn't use eggs... I used flaxseed binder and I highly recommend it!
