Banana Toffee Cupcakes

Do you need a different way to use up those old bananas and you are sick of plain old banana bread? Then you should give these a whirl. They were really good. They are not that great for you but you can substitute no sugar all natural applesauce in place of the water and oil. I think next time I am going to do this but if you want a sweet treat with the calories then leave in the oil. These were so easy to throw together. My kids loved them.

Banana Toffee Cupcakes

1 box yellow cake mix
1/3 cup water(or applesauce)
1/3 cup vegetable oil (or applesauce)
1 tsp almond extract
3 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas(2 medium)
1-1 1/2 cups toffee bits

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper baking cup in a muffin tin and spray them with cooking spray. In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, water, oil, almond extract, and eggs with a mixer on low speed 30 seconds then beat on hig for 2 minutes. Add bananas and beat until smooth. Stir in 1 cup toffee bits. Divide batter evenly into lined muffin tins. Sprinkle top of each muffin with additional toffee bits. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove immediately from pan so they can cool.

Note: I baked my at 320 for about 16-17 minutes. My oven runs warmer than most so adjust yours to how you oven cooks.
