Notes

Check the middle of the muffins for doneness at 18 minutes with a dull knife or toothpick. Mine took 23 minutes. 
You can use frozen blueberries in this recipe if you toss them in a tiny bit of flour before baking so they don't defrost and move down to the bottom of the muffin too quickly. 
The bananas are substituting for the sugar. 
The applesauce is substituting for the vegetable oil.
