Calories 150 kcal


  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • cup honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup milk (any kind)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a muffin tin or line it with paper liners.
  • In a large bowl, mix the mashed bananas, honey or maple syrup, milk, egg, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix well.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Don’t overmix, as this will make the muffins tough.
  • If you’re using nuts or chocolate chips, fold them in now.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the muffins cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. For extra flavor, you can caramelize the bananas before adding them to the batter. Simply slice the bananas and cook them in a pan with a little butter or oil until they are golden brown and caramelized.
  2. If you don’t have any honey or maple syrup, you can use another sweetener, such as sugar or agave nectar.
  3. You can use any type of milk you like in this recipe, such as cow’s milk, almond milk, or soy milk.
  4. If you don’t have any all-purpose flour, you can use whole wheat flour or a gluten-free flour blend.
  5. If you don’t have any baking powder or baking soda, you can use 1 teaspoon of baking powder instead.
  6. For a richer flavor, you can use melted butter instead of oil to grease the muffin tin.
