Homemade Oatmeal Cups

I've gotten sick of eating pre-packaged granola bars at work for breakfast. They always seem to upset my stomach and never fill me up. I did a search on Pinterest for oatmeal breakfast bars and couldn't find ones with enough "umph" in them. I've added quite a bit of extra healthy parts to sub out some of the not so healthy parts.

Oatmeal Breakfast Cups (24 cupcakes)
2 eggs
1 and 1/2 banana, the riper the better!
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups applesauce
~4 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cups flax meal
1/4 cup chia seeds
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup flour
~2 and 1/2 cups soymilk

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Combine eggs, vanilla, banana, applesauce, and sugar until smooth.
3. Add oats, chia, cinnamon, baking powder, and flour.
4. Add enough soymilk to make the batter a slightly liquidy consistency; it took me about 2 and 1/2 cups.
5. Add by 1/4 cup to lined cupcake tin.
6. Before baking, top as desired. Suggestions: frozen berries; chocolate chips; butterscotch chips; coconut; dried cranberries; any combination of them. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
