Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives: Honey Bear Banana Muffins

Honey Bear Banana Muffins are a simple and delicious snack or back-to-school breakfast.  When frosted, they make a delicious cupcake treat.  Enjoy!


3c flour
1t baking soda
1t salt
1/2t baking powder
1/2t cinnamon
1/2t nutmeg
2c sugar
1c oil (canola oil is my preferred choice)
3 eggs
1T vanilla (using authentic Mexican vanilla has changed my culinary life!)
3 over ripe bananas
1/2-3/4c applesauce (my secret ingredient)

Combine all ingredients and mix until the batter is smooth.  Bake at 325 for 25 minutes.
Makes 24-30 scrumptious muffins.

When cooled and we want a completely decadent treat, we frost these with a honey vanilla frosting.  On a "good" day I make homeade buttercream frosting and add fresh local honey to taste.  On a "not so good" day, I pop open a can of Pillsbury vanilla frosting and add whatever honey I happen to have in the pantry.  Either way, it's a real flavor treat!

HINT:  For those of you traveling down the adoption highway to a Central or South American destination, these muffins met favor with a group of children who have a palate for native Latin American food.

"Share with the Lord's people who are in need.  Practice hospitality."
