"My "go to" muffin recipe is the Basic Banana Muffins here on the Taste of Home site, but I decided to try this one since I had a very large jar of applesauce opened that I didn't want to go to waste. This recipe is very good, and I did not modify it at all, however I feel it would benefit from the addition of a streusel topping."

"I was going to make banana muffins, but found someone had absconded with the bananas, knew i had some applesauce in the pantry so went looking for an alternative and found this recipe. My son loved them and so did I."
