Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Cups

These apple cinnamon baked oatmeal cups are loaded with cinnamon flavor and studded with small pieces of diced apple.

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

  • rolled oats
  • milk – I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
  • ground flaxseed
  • apples
  • 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!

Description

These apple cinnamon baked oatmeal cups are loaded with cinnamon flavor and studded with small pieces of diced apple.


Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons natural almond butter (look for one that’s drippy)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup diced apple, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 12-cup muffin tin with silicone liners (affiliate link). Paper liners work too. Spray liners with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix rolled oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together almond milk and flaxseed. Let sit for about 5 minutes before adding remaining wet ingredients: applesauce, maple syrup, almond butter and vanilla.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Gently stir to combine. Fold in 1/4 cup of the diced apples.
  5. Scoop mixture evenly into muffin tin with liners and top each cup with remaining diced apples.
  6. 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.

Notes

  • 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.
