I have a kid who likes banana anything and everything…banana cream pie, banana flavored candy, banana bread and of course, bananas. I knew he would love these. I also knew he would probably be the only person in our house who would eat them, but sometimes you just have to bake something for someone because you know they will love it, not because everyone will love it.
2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 single serving cup (or 1 cup) of plain low-fat Greek yogurt
3/4 cup sugar, applesauce, agave, honey…whatever you want to use
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray.
Place all of the ingredients, including bananas in a blender or food processor, and blend until oats are smooth. PUT THE YOGURT IN THE BLENDER FIRST AND PUT THE OATS IN THE BLENDER LAST. (Very important to keep things from getting stuck.)
Pout batter into cupcake pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
What did the family think? He loved them just as I knew he would. He had them for snack and for breakfast for several days. The rest of us didn’t have any.
Where did this recipe come from? I got it from Keeping Up with the Joneses and they got it from Dashing Dish.

I loved the recipes for snacks as children need lots of these throughout the day to keep their mental energy high. We also pack extra snacks for times when they are feeling a little low energy wise. This recipe would be great.
