As you know, I love baked oatmeal but want to know what I might love more than baked oatmeal? Baked oatmeal cups! They’re so convenient to grab and go when in a rush and the perfect breakfast or snack to meal prep. I’m excited for you to try this recipe! I’m curious to know if you like the full family sized baked oatmeal or these baked oatmeal cups better. 🙂
Ingredients in Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Cups
milk – I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
extra flavors – applesauce, cinnamon, sea salt, maple syrup, and vanilla extract
almond butter – for topping.
How to Make Baked Oatmeal Cups
In a large bowl, mix your dry ingredients together – the rolled oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk and ground flaxseed. Let that mixture sit for about five minutes before adding in the rest of the wet ingredients – the applesauce, maple syrup, almond butter and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently stir to combine. Fold in the chopped apples and then scoop the mixture into muffin a muffin pan lined with silicone or paper muffin liners and top each with additional diced apples.
Storing Baked Oatmeal Cups
Let the oatmeal cups cool completely before storing them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. I like to keep mine in the freezer (because they last longer!). When it’s time to enjoy, you can eat them cold or my personal preference is to pop them in the toaster over to heat them up a bit!
To reheat: Remove cup from liner and wrap in a paper towel, microwave until warm throughout, about 30-60 seconds. Or reheat in the toaster oven by cutting the cup in half and heating on low (250-300°F) for 5-6 minutes or until the cup is warm throughout. You can thaw the frozen cups by transferring them from the freezer to the fridge the night before or cook the oat cups directly from frozen. Just wrap the frozen cup in a paper towel and heat in 30 seconds increments until warm throughout. It should only take 1-2 minutes.
