Chocolate Chip Apple Cake
Would give it 5 stars but made changes. Used 1 banana and 1/2 cup oil rather than 1 cup butter. Used 1 1/2 cups sugar which was still a bit too much - would use 1 1/4 next time. Used 3 Tbsp. cocoa and 3 peeled and diced apples. I liked the look and taste of the apple chunks in the cake. It rose so high - and was very tasty!!! My boys loved it!!! Definitely in my recipe box and will make again!

Most Requested Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
Didn't rate these "5" as I changed the recipe. These were great though. I didn't use the butter - used 6 Tbsp. unsweetened applesauce instead and added 1 tsp. of cinnamon as others suggested. These rose beautifully and I love the ground flax addition. With a constant barrage of hungry teenage boys, this recipe will be a staple in my house from now on.

Banana Banana Bread
I've made this a couple times and am including the changes I made which are a bit different than the others. I used 1/2 cup applesauce instead of butter to cut down on the fat. Used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup light brown (yummy). I also used 1/3 cup no fat yogurt instead of sour cream. I didn't have cake flour and found that you can use 2 Tbsp. of cornstarch (put it on the bottom of your 1 cup measuring cup) then top it up with regular flour and it works perfectly. For the 1/2 cup put 1 Tbsp. of cornstarch then top it with flour. I used 1 cup of mini chocolate chips and added it to the dry ingredients (no need to flour them separately) then combined the wet with dry. Excellent cake and it was "hoovered". Thank you so much!!!
