MY BANANA-ALMOND-VANILLA-NUTMEG and CHOCOLATE-BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS CUPCAKES FOR YOUR LOVE ONES IN ST. VALENTINES DAY
This is a day to celebrate the people that you love. To me that should include everyone; your husband, wife, children, neighbors, co-workers and anyone in between. Why not taking a batch of these cupcakes to your nearest homeless shelter for women and children? That’s an awesome idea. Time to bake my friends, from scratch! SMILE.

In a med size bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients: the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground nutmeg, sugar and salt.
In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients: First, mash the bananas.
Mix in the egg whites, the applesauce, melted unsalted butter at room temp, vanilla and almond extracts and add them to the bananas.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened and incorporated.
And now the fun part. Divide the mix into 3 separate small bowls and mix into each bowl the chocolate chips, the butterscotch chips and leave one bowl without chips to have 3 different options to offer to your families.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes depending on your oven calibration.
