Baked Oatmeal Cups 4-Ways

 As you probably know from my countless oatmeal recipes… I’m a BIG fan of oatmeal. I love overnight oats, steel cut oatmeal, slow cooker oatmeal, baked oatmeal, alllll the oats! Today, I wanted to focus on baked oatmeal cups! I’ve posted about baked oatmeal cups before sharing this original recipe for banana oatmeal cups and these pumpkin oatmeal cups, but I wanted to put together a full post about baked oatmeal cups because they’re pretty special and perfect for meal prep. Here’s why:

Oatmeal cups are very similar to muffins. The main difference is that oatmeal cups are flourless because you’re just using oats and they have more liquid added to the batter. In addition, muffins (especially bakery-style muffins) often have a lot of processed flour and sugar, but oatmeal cups are made with the same healthy ingredients you’d would put into a bowl of oatmeal! Huge win!

Oatmeal Cups Base

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed (see subs below)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Chip 


2 Tablespoons peanut butter

2 mashed bananas (about 1/2 cup)

3 Tablespoons peanut butter

2 mashed bananas (about 1/2 cup)

INSTRUCTIONS

Oatmeal Base



Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 12-cup muffin tin with silicone liners. Paper liners work too. Spray liners with non-stick spray.

In a large bowl, mix rolled oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.

In another bowl, whisk together almond milk, maple syrup, ground flaxseed and vanilla. Let sit for about 5 minutes before adding remaining wet ingredients which will vary based on which type of oatmeal cup you’re making.

Chocolate Chip 



Add peanut butter, mashed bananas and 1/8 cup of mini chocolate chips into the bowl with the ground flaxseed and almond milk.

Pour wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients.

Scoop mixture evenly into muffin tin with liners and top each cup with remaining mini chocolate chips.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until the center of the cups has set and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cups to cool before transferring to a storage container and placing them in the fridge or freezer.

Apple Cinnamon


Add extra cinnamon, almond butter, applesauce and 1/8 cup of diced apples into the bowl with the ground flaxseed and almond milk.

Pour wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients.

Scoop mixture evenly into muffin tin with liners and top each cup with remaining diced apples.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until the center of the cups has set and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cups to cool before transferring to a storage container and placing them in the fridge or freezer.

Blueberry Almond


Add almond butter, applesauce, almonds and 1/8 cup of blueberries into the bowl with the ground flaxseed and almond milk.

Pour wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients.

Scoop mixture evenly into muffin tin with liners and top each cup with remaining blueberries and almonds.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until the center of the cups has set and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cups to cool before transferring to a storage container and placing them in the fridge or freezer.

Peanut Butter Banana
