  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

Preheat the oven and prepare the pan. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a standard muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper muffin cups.
Mix up the batter. Place all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a large bowl and mix to combine until well blended. Allow to sit and rest for a few minutes. Either fold in the chocolate chips or you can sprinkle on top.
Pour batter into Muffin Pan. Evenly transfer batter into prepared muffin pan. There will be 12 oatmeal cups.
Bake the Oatmeal Cups. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until the cups are set and the edges are lightly browned.


  • Milk: I typically use skim milk or almond milk. You can use any kind of milk.
  • Maple Syrup: You can substitute a different sweetener – such as honey.
  • Leftovers: Cups can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
