  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup packed mashed ripe bananas (about 2.5 bananas)
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and butter a muffin tin.
  2. Combine the buttermilk, mashed banana, melted butter, eggs, brown sugar, maple syrup, and vanilla. Beat together until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix to fully combine. Add to the wet ingredients, and mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Divide the batter evenly among 12 tins, and top with a thin slice of banana (optional) and a few raw oats.
  5. Bake until a cake-tester comes out clean — about 15 minutes.
