Banana Apple Cupcake Muffins


1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup apple sauce
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3 bananas, mashed
1 Granny smith apple, peeled and diced small

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line two cupcake/muffin tins with 17 paper liners.

In a large stand mixer, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix.  Add the yogurt, apple sauce, and vanilla extract, and mix until incorporated.  Sift in the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.  Turn mixer on low and mix just until combined.  Remove the mixing bowl and fold in the mashed bananas and diced apples.  You can also stir in some golden raisins or dried cranberries.

Use an ice cream scoop to fill the cupcake liners almost full.  Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until toothpick comes out almost clean.  Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack to cool completely before icing.
