These muffins was on ‘The Kids Page’ of the newspaper in 1996 and have become one of my favorite snacks. They are low fat since they are made with applesauce instead of butter or oil.

Recipe Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 egg
  • 3 ripe bananas, diced
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cherries

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. 2 Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. 3 Mix applesauce and egg together in another bowl. Add applesauce mixture to the flour mixture. Stir in bananas, chocolate chips, and dried cherries.
  4. 4 Spoon batter into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup almost to the top.
  5. 5 Bake muffins in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Made recipe as written. The only change I will make next time, is to cut back the chocolate chips to 3/4 cup. It almost over powers the cherries and bananas. Did not miss the butter. Thanks for sharing Ginny Coy.
