Oatmeal Banana Cupcakes Recipe

I am always searching for different fun recipes that I can make for my family. I found a bunch that had both the oatmeal and banana ingredients that I was looking for  but none seemed quite right to me. So I decided to make my own. While these could very well be morning muffins- they are so moist and fluffy, the word cupcake is way more appropriate. I don’t like too much frosting, so I just opted not to make one- although a simple cream cheese or butter cream would work.

Give it a try and tell me what you think!

Oatmeal Banana Cupcakes


1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/3 cup honey
dash or two vanilla

2/3 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

6) Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until cupcakes test done.

    I have a question about the ingredients “1-1/4 eggs”? I’m not sure what that means. I can’t wait to make these.
