Banana-Oat Breakfast Bites


We usually go through about 10 bananas a week in our house, but somehow we ended up with a few sitting around that were past their prime. Solution? A totally made-up recipe starring overripe bananas!

Okay, so I actually made these last weekend but wasn’t satisfied with how they turned out (I mean, we ate them all they were just a little undercooked). Fear not! I tried again this weekend and they turned out great…second time’s the charm?


The first time I made these, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to use. So, the above picture isn’t fully representative of the final ingredients used in the recipe. These were super easy to whip up and will be great for those mornings you don’t quite have enough time to make a breakfast sammie.


The first time I made these, the batter was enough for 6 muffins; the second time I made them, the batter was enough for 8 muffins. Hm. I’m thinking my bananas must have been bigger the second time around? And maybe I didn’t fill the cups quite as much?


First batch.


Second batch.

I recently bought Trader Joe’s maple sugar and used it for the first time in this recipe. If you don’t have a TJ’s nearby, you could certainly sub maple syrup, honey or some other sweetener here. Also, I used pumpkin pie spice but any mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice etc will work just fine.
