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
Preheat oven to 350˚.
Combine all ingredients. Mix well.
Scoop mixture into muffin tin so that the mixture rises a little over the edge of the tin cavities.
Bake at 350˚ for 20 minutes, checking that the interiors are dry with a fork or toothpick.
Let sit for 10 minutes or so until settled. Serve with jam, or nothing at all!
