Ingredients

  • 1 heaping cup ripe mashed banana
  • ½ cup creamy or crunchy natural peanut butter (just peanuts + salt)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or honey)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats, gluten free if desired
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • cup dark chocolate chips, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top (dairy free if desired)
  • Optional: ⅓ cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with muffin liners and spray with nonstick cooking spray to prevent oatmeal cups from sticking.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the mashed banana, peanut butter, eggs, maple syrup, almond milk and vanilla until smooth and well combined.
  3. Next stir in dry ingredients: oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; stir well to combine. Fold in ⅓ cup chocolate chips into batter.
  4. Evenly distribute oatmeal batter between muffin liners. Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top and bake for 20-25 minutes. Drizzle with your favorite nut butter before serving, if desired. Serves 12.

Recipe Notes

To make dairy free: be sure to use a dairy free milk and to also use dairy free chocolate chips.

To freeze oatmeal cups: simply allow them to cool completely after baking, then place them in an airtight container or reusable bag such as these and freeze for up to 3 months. Once ready to eat, you can microwave them for 45 seconds-1 minute or until warm
