Banana apple pecan muffins

Jacqui had been asking to make muffins for the past few weekends, but we just haven't had the time to. I promised her last night that we would make muffins this morning for breakfast. We are lacking in fruit and veggies at the apt right now, so I looked around and decided to make banana and apple muffins. The muffins were soft and delicious, a perfect breakfast. And the girls loved actually making the batter and the muffins. Feels like a long time since we've done that together. 

2 large ripe bananas 
3/4 large golden delicious apple, finely chopped 
1/4 cup applesauce 
1/4 cup organic canola oil 
1/4 cup blackstrap molasses 
1/3 cup vegan sugar 
1 cup all purpose unbleached flour 
1/2 cup spelt flour 
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour 
3/4 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp sea salt 
1/2 cup chopped pecans 

What to do 
Preheat oven to 350. Gather ingredients and children. Have girls peel bananas into a large bowl. Given the forks and show them how to mash the bananas. Mash. Add the applesauce, oil, and molasses and mix well. Then add the sugar, flours, baking powder, and salt, and mix well. Mom or dad may have to help with this mixing to get everything combined. Add the chopped apples and chopped pecans. Have the girls put the liners in the muffin pan. Spoon the batter (after the girls have tasted it, of course) into the muffin pan. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Enjoy!
