Zero-Waste, 3-Ingredient Oatmeal Muffins

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!

Note: 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! Yum!
