I originally posted this recipe ten years ago. That's crazy talk!
Anyway, I decided to repost it just as is, photos and all after a few people requested it. According to my archive, this post had over 330 comments. I may be the most commented post I've ever had!
By the way, that kid in the Power Ranger PJs is thirteen now, also crazy!

Banana Oatmeal Cups with Chocolate Chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Mix all ingredients except the chocolate chips, and let sit while you prepare the muffin pans.3 mashed bananas, 1 cup vanilla Almond milk, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon Baking powder, 3 cups 240g Old Fashion or Rolled Oats, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Spray a muffin pan and/or liners with non-stick spray.
- Stir the chocolate chips into the oatmeal batter.3 tablespoon 42g mini chocolate chips
- Divide batter into 15 muffin cups. They should be just about filled.
- Bake 20-30 minutes, you’ll see the edges just starting to brown, and they will be firm to the touch.
- Cool for a few minutes in the tin before removing. Otherwise, they stick.
- The riper the bananas the better but I've made them with just ripe and had good results.
- Any milk should work. I just happen to always have almond milk on hand.
- This recipe is very forgiving and very easy to add other healthy things too like flax, hemp seeds, chia. They all make great additions.
