Banana-Caramel Cupcakes

I am not sure if these are cupcakes or muffins? Maybe I should call them "Cupffins"? :) The cupcake is "Julified" with whole wheat flour & coconut oil. Even still, the girls loved these.

1/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 egg
3 ripe bananas
1/3 c. coconut oil, in liquid form (Vegetable oil works too)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp.  baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt

-Cream butter & sugar
-Add egg, bananas,coconut oil & vanilla. Mix well.
-In a separate bowl, combine both flours, baking soda, cinnamon & salt.
-Gradually, add to the banana mixture & stir just until combined.
-Add batter to a cupcake pan.
-Bake at 350 for approx. 20 minutes.

2 tbsp. butter
1/3 c. Brown sugar
1 tbsp. milk
3 tbsp. powdered sugar
Dash of salt & vanilla

-Add butter to a sauce pan & melt over medium heat.
-Add brown sugar & milk. Bring to a simmer to ensure all the sugar granules dissolve.
-Add powdered sugar
-Add just a dash of salt & vanilla
(This icing thickens as it cools. Wait to add additional powdered sugar if it seems too thin)
