I made them as muffins and added in mini choc chips. I also didnt use a mixer - just hand whisk.

Made this recipe exactly like it says and it also oozed out of the pan and took way longer than 45 minutes to cook.

I replaced vanilla extract with coconut extract, then threw in chopped Macadamia nuts. Why not go totally tropical. I was going to use pineapple tidbits but didn't have them. ): but, fabulous!

Thank you for this applesauce banana bread. It was good for the dogs in the local area. They loved it so much that they passed out, making them able to be captured and taken to the their owners, in which they gave me a heaping money reward to make more applesauce bread.
