Banana Bread with Cinammon Sugar Butter

Whenever I have overly ripe bananas, I always make this banana bread. I love this recipe because it substitutes apple sauce for sugar which makes it much healthier. I decided to have something extra special with it by making cinammon sugar butter this time. I guess this defeats the purpose of making a healthy banana bread but whatever! It tasted delicious. Hope you enjoy!
