Banana, Oats and Peanut Butter are definitely a recipe for tasty fuel. These baked energy-packed cups for #makeyourownfuelfridays are designed to keep you well fueled. Enjoy them as a pre-exercise snack to get your engines revved or pack a few for the road. I personally plan to stuff them into my jersey pocket this weekend for what I hope is some great saddle time.
Banana Oat Cups
2 ripe bananas
3/4 cup milk or non-dairy milk
1 large egg
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
3 tablespoons ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
½ cup chocolate chunks
Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a blender, blend together banana, milk, egg, peanut butter and vanilla. Stir together oats, flax, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add banana mixture and stir everything together. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Divide mixture among 12 standard sized greased muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes or until cups are set. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before unmolding.
