For the Cupcakes

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup very ripe banana smashed (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Quaker Quick Oats

For the Frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in banana, eggs, vanilla and milk.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients along with the oatmeal to the wet and stir just until combined.
  • Line a muffin tin with cupcake papers and fill them 2/3 full with batter. Bake at 350 F for 17-18 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
  • To make the frosting, beat the cream cheese and butter in a mixer until fluffy. Beat in the vanilla, powdered sugar and enough of the cream until spreadable.
  • Pipe or spread the frosting onto the cupcakes and enjoy!
