Wow, that name is a mouthful How about "crananasauce muffins"? These turned out moist and delicious. I do not need to eat GF, but I make it for friends. Non the less, I loved these too. They could be made dairy free with a coconut oil substitute for the butter.

Ingredients

4 Tbsp
butter, melted
1/3 c
sugar
1/2 c
applesauce, unsweetened
1
banana, overripe and slightly mashed
1
egg
1 Tbsp
cinnamon or pumpkin pie seasoning
1 tsp
vanilla
3/4 c
gluten free baking mix
1/8 tsp
xanthum gum
1 Tbsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/3 c
dried cranberries
cinnamon sugar for topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 375.
In a mixing bowl put the melted butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, smashed banana and applesauce. Whisk this together.
2
In another bowl whisk the GF baking mix, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and xanthum gum.
3
Mix the wet ingredients with the dry. Stir gently until mixed. It too runny, add a little more baking mix. Then add the Cranberries. I just added a big handful. Gently stir in.
4
Spoon into prepared muffin pans. Sprinkle tops with the cinnamon sugar. Bake for about 12 minutes or until toothpick comes out with crumbs, not batter.
Let cool slightly before moving. Do not cover until totally cool. GF items do not seem, in my experience, to like steam.
