  • 1 ½ cups boiling water

  • ¾ cup old-fashioned oats

  • ½ cup butter at room temperature

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup mashed overripe bananas

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • 1 (14 ounce) can caramel-flavored sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (Optional)

  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut (Optional)

  • ½ cup butter, melted

  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

  2. Combine boiling water and oats in a small bowl; let stand for 20 minutes.

  3. Combine 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, and white sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add bananas, eggs, and vanilla extract; stir well to combine. Mix in oatmeal.

  4. Sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Fold into the oatmeal mixture. Divide batter evenly among the muffin cups.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool in the tin, about 5 minutes.

  6. Poke 3 deep holes into each muffin using the round handle of a small wooden spoon. Drizzle 1 tablespoon caramel-flavored condensed milk over each muffin. Let cool completely, about 15 minutes.

  7. Mix 1 cup brown sugar, walnuts, coconut, 1/2 cup melted butter, and heavy cream together in a bowl to make topping. Sprinkle topping over muffins.
