Healthy Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

I’ve been trying to feed my family healthier food for the last few months, but I always have such a sweet tooth!  I had some overripe bananas and thought I would make a nutritious and delicious after school snack for my kids and they loved it!

I love using cinnamon applesauce to give these muffins a little more flavor!

You could also sprinkle some mini chocolate chips on top before baking if you’re really feeling wild. 😉
