Banana Bread English Muffins

I've been searching for an easy recipe for making
banana bread with the texture like English muffins.
Some recipes call for one whole stick of butter,
I lightened it up using apple sauce and less sugar.
this is easy enough to make with simple ingredients.
I added in some fresh blueberries as a flavor boost.

1/2 cup milk 110 degrees F.
1 packet instant yeast
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 really ripe bananas
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup fresh blueberries

In a mixing cup stir in yeast into warm milk,
set aside to proof while mixing other ingredients.
In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking soda,
ground cinnamon and salt, set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine bananas, applesauce,
sugar, egg and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients.
Stir in yeast proofed milk to make a batter.
Stir in blueberries and pour batter into a pan or
muffin tins to bake for appropriate times until done.
Muffin tins take half the time, loaf pan will be 1 hour.
Let cool before slicing, toasting and serving.
