  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips (optional)

Wet ingredients:

  • 2 overripe bananas mashed (about 2/3 cup mashed banana)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk use whole milk for babies and preferred milk for older children and adults
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries or about 3 raspberries per cup


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bow, mix all of the dry ingredients together.
  3. In a medium bowl, mash the banana until mostly smooth. Add the remaining wet ingredients other than the raspberries. Mix to combine.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
  5. Evenly distribute the mixture among approximately 16-18 silicone heart-shaped cups or regular silicon muffin cups, filling each cup almost to the top. You can also bake the mixture in an 8×8 inch baking dish if you prefer to cut the mixture into bars.
  6. Top the cups evenly with the raspberries pressing gently so that they sink into the oatmeal mixture. If the raspberries are large, you may wish to break them into smaller pieces before pressing them in.
  7. Bake for 20-23 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cups to fully cool before removing from the muffin pan.
