Banana Granola Muffins

I've been snowed in for exactly half a day and have been cooking nonstop...because that's what I do when I don't know what else to do. Tonight the kitchen was finally clean and there was an overripe banana bothering me on the counter. School is already cancelled tomorrow so I figured I'd bake some quick muffins so the kids will have something ready to eat when they get up. Here's what emerged:

Banana Granola Muffins

Whisk together:

3/4 c all-purpose flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
1/4 c oat bran
1/2 c sugar
1/2 t salt
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon

In separate bowl blend:

1/2 c plain yogurt
1 egg
1/2 c applesauce
1 t vanilla

Add wet ingredients to dry.

Mash up two small/med bananas and fold into mixture. Scoop into sprayed muffin tin, about 2/3 full. Top each with a sprinkle of granola. Bake at 350 for 22 minutes and remove to cool on wire rack.
