- With an electric mixer, beat the peanut butter and applesauce until combined. Beat in the brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla, beating until mixed. Stir in the bananas, baking soda and salt.

These are delicious!! I didn't have applesauce, so I just chopped up one apple and microwaved it with cinnamon for about 5 minutes until soft. I also used less sugar- about 1/2 cup. I had three overripe bananas, so I used them all. These turned out perfect. I can't wait to have them with coffee in the morning. Thanks for posting!
