Updated: Apr 30, 2021

Got a sweet tooth but don't know what to do about it?

This recipe is a low-impact, low-effort baked good that you can make within half an hour to satisfy your cravings - without making a mess, or buying tons of ingredients!

Even better?

Vegan and gluten-free options available!


Quite a lot of waste is generated by folks who have a craving for something (usually something sweet or salty) and buy last-minute ingredients that they may never use again. Get around this issue by using what you already have!


  • 1 Cup of rolled oats -1/4 Cup of maple syrup or honey sweetener - or use a banana instead for no refined sugar! -1/2 Cup of water or milk or non-dairy milk substitute


  • 1 Egg (for a closer, spongier bind)

  • 1 Banana instead of sweetener. Banana also binds in lieu of an egg!

  • 1/4 Cup of chocolate chips or nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.

  2. Combine all ingredients. Mix well.

  3. Scoop mixture into muffin tin so that the mixture rises a little over the edge of the tin cavities.

  4. Bake at 350˚ for 20 minutes, checking that the interiors are dry with a fork or toothpick.

  5. Let sit for 10 minutes or so until settled. Serve with jam, or nothing at all!
