Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Cups

These are the perfect meal prep breakfast idea that can be created on Sunday and used as a quick grab-and-go breakfast or snack throughout the week. They are incredibly easy to make, and fully customizable – meaning you don’t have to make a dozen of the same recipe, you can make two of each flavor using the same oat base.

How To Make 6 Baked Oatmeal Cups Flavors

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or add cupcake liners.

STEP 2: In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients thoroughly: 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ tsp nutmeg, and ½ tsp salt.

STEP 3: On a plate mash the two ripe bananas with a fork until very mushy.

STEP 4: In a medium bowl, beat the 4 eggs with a fork. Add in the mashed banana, 1 cup milk, ¼ cup honey and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix everything together.

STEP 5: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl, and combine thoroughly. Let this mixture sit for 15-20 minutes to allow the oats to absorb as much liquid as possible.

STEP 6: Add ½ cup of the oat base to a small bowl. Stir in the flavor additions using the ingredients list below:

  • Double Chocolate: 1 Tbsp cocoa powder, 1 Tbsp chocolate chips
  • Apple Cinnamon: ¼ cup apple, 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Coconut Blueberry: ¼ cup blueberries, 1 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • Cranberry Orange: ¼ cup dried cranberries, 1 Tbsp orange zest
  • Peanut Butter & Jam: 2 Tbsp peanut butter, 2 tsp strawberry jam

STEP 7: Now scoop ¼ cup of batter into one muffin cup and pour the rest in another. Repeat step 6 with the other flavors until all muffin cups are full.

STEP 8: Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350℉ or until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when poked in the center. Let cool for 10 minutes, then transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

Recipe Tips

  • Make the banana bread oatmeal cup base first. I’ve designed these oatmeal cups to be created using the same base. That way you’re not starting from scratch every time. It’s easy to make the base, and once you do be sure to let the base sit for 10-15 minutes to help oats soak up the excess liquid.
  • Each muffin requires ¼ cup of oat base. To make two of each flavor, I recommend scooping ½ cup of the base into a small bowl and then adding the additional flavor ingredients.
  • Create new flavors. It’s easy to add ½ cup of the base to a bunch of bowls and let kids have fun! You could lay a bunch of ingredients on the counter for them to experiment with: dried fruits, shredded coconut, nuts and seeds, cinnamon, dark chocolate chips, cacao powder, nut butter, and soo much more! I recommend ¼ cup of dried fruits or berries, and 1 Tbsp max for things like cacao powder, shredded coconut, seeds, etc. This would work best for two muffins.

How To Store Leftovers

These muffins can be pulled out of the fridge and eaten cold, or popped in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to warm them up. If you’re pulling them out of the freezer, I would defrost for 30 seconds in the microwave while wrapped in a paper towel.

Breakfast cups can be stored in fridge or freezer. Try this recipe out and if you end up really liking it, then make a double batch and freeze half for later.
