Chunky Monkey Oatmeal Cups

Servings 16 cups


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 3/4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups of your favorite milk or milk alternative
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup peanuts crushed


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 16 muffin cups. Grease well or they will stick!
  • In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add eggs. Mix well with fork until well combined.
  • Add peanut butter, cocoa powder, and vanilla. Continue to mix well.
  • Grab a spoon and mix in remaining ingredients - oats, milk and salt. Stir carefully until combined. Allow to sit for 5 - 10 minutes so the oats can absorb a little liquid.
  • Top each muffin with chocolate chips & crushed peanuts.
  • Bake for 25 - 30 minutes for 16 cups.
  • Remove from oven when center is firm to the touch. Allow to cool slightly before removing from tins. Run a knife around the edges to loosen before removing. Allow to cool on a baking rack.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.


Other Thoughts
  • If you want to increase the protein, use cow's milk or a higher protein nondairy milk such as Ripple or soy milk. The nutrition stats below are based on unsweetened almond milk.
  • You can sub in quick oats or gluten free oats, if needed.
  • These would also be pretty fantastic with almond butter and almonds instead of peanut butter and peanuts.
Athletes: Three of these guys is a minimum serving - they aren't very big. This will give you 45 gm carbs and 12 gm protein. Top that off with some greek yogurt or a side of eggs for your protein + you may need to add a banana or more fruit to meet your training carb goals.
Healthy Eating: One of these guys has 120 calories, 6 gm fat, 15 gm carbs, and 4 gm protein. That's not enough for a meal, no matter what you goals! Adjust the amount and add in other things to get what you need.
Kids: These passed the kiddo test so hopefully you can put these in your kids hands as they run out the door and for a quick breakfast at home.
