Instructions

Preheat oven to 400⁰F.

Line muffin tins with wrappers or spray with cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream butter, oil, brown sugar, bananas, applesauce and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each.

In a separate bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Add flour mixture and buttermilk to the butter-banana mixture, alternating flour and buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour. Mix just until blended. Stir in walnuts.

Scoop mixture into muffin tins, filling each to the top. Bake 18 to 20 minutes.

No buttermilk? Mix 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to 1 cup of skim milk, allowing it to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.
