Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cups

Chocolate chip baked oatmeal cups are healthy with a hint of decadence thanks to the mini chocolate chips. If you love the thought of having chocolate for breakfast, these are for you!


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon 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
  • 2 mashed bananas (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips, divided (dairy-free, if needed)


  1. 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.
  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: mashed banana, maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Gently stir to combine and fold in 1/8 cup of mini chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop mixture evenly into muffin tin with liners and top each cup with remaining mini chocolate chips.
  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.


  1. 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.

      Really good! I used vanilla soy milk because that’s all I had! Ran out of maple syrup so put a bit of brown sugar in. Looking to see how well these freeze and reheat. Thanks for those tips!

      Such a delicious quick little treat. My boyfriend is allergic to nuts so I had to make a few adjustments and they still turned out so good! Coconut milk instead of almond with 1/4 C less milk, no peanut butter (didn’t need a sub since amount was small- just backed off on some of the liquid) and an egg instead of flax since I’m not vegan. Definitely added extra choco chips. Out of the oven I put scoops of peanut butter on top of mine and highly recommend!

        Oh yay!! So glad these oatmeal cups turned out with the subs you made. Thanks for the review and for sharing. It’s super helpful for other readers. 🙂

      A not-too-sweet snack or (with a couple of cups) breakfast for oat-lovers. Very cute presentation, too. I added an extra Tablespoon of peanut butter and still didn’t feel I could taste it beyond the oats and banana, so I might try more next time and see what happens. I look forward to trying many different flavors using this base. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Can we use chia seeds instead of flax seeds? and organic honey instead of maple syrup?

        Hey Aya – Yes, you could use chia seeds or even a regular egg instead of the flax. And yes, you can use honey instead of the maple syrup. 🙂

      Can I leave the banana out of the chocolate chip oatmeal cups? My son will taste it right away.

        You can use applesauce instead. I’d do 1/2 cup. Let me know how they turn out. 🙂
