Servings: 12


  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons flaxseed
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans plus more for topping


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and spray one 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners. Silicone liners work great!
  • In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients together except for the pecans.
  • Gently stir in pecans.
  • Pour batter evenly into muffin tin.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes or until the center of each baked oatmeal cup is set and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cups to cool before eating (the cupcake liners are much easier to get off once they have cooled).
