  • 1 ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 Ripe bannas
  • ½ cup refined sugar
  • ½ cup plant-based milk
  • ¼ cup corn or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans and walnuts optional


  • Preheat the oven to 400F. Then grease the muffin pan and keep it ready for use.
  • Prepare oat flour and sieve it to get a fine consistency. Place it aside for use later.
  • First, mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Mash the bananas with a fork and add sugar, oil, and the plant-based milk. Stir well. Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
  • Mix well and add the chopped pecans and walnuts. Save a little bit of the nuts to top the muffins later.
  • Use a large spoon or ice cream scoop and pour the dough into the greased muffin tin ¾ of the way – top with chopped pecan and walnuts.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 400F for perfection.



  • Use a greased muffin pan or paper muffin cups. Both options work equally well for this recipe.
  • I used almond milk in this recipe but you can replace it with coconut milk or any other nut-milk/dairy-free milk of your choice.
  • Oats flour can be replaced with all-purpose flour if you do not prefer oat flour. Ripe bananas are key for two reasons - sweetness and texture.
  • A little bit of brown spots on the bananas is what you need. You can also use brown bananas that have been (de-skinned and) frozen. That way you can prepare the recipe when you are ready.
  • These muffins will stay out fresh for 4- 5 days if it lasts that long that is…:-)
