Ingredients You’ll Need for the Baked Oatmeal Cups:

  • Old Fashioned or Classic Rolled Oats
  • Baking Powder
  • Ground Cinnamon and Kosher Salt
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Milk – I used skim milk but dairy-free milk would work too!
  • Mashed Ripe Bananas
  • Maple Syrup
  • Chocolate Chips – optional
oats, milk, banana, maple syrup, and spices in glass bowls

How to make the Banana Oatmeal Cups:

  1. Preheat the oven and prepare the pan. First, preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a standard muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper muffin cups.
  2. Mix up the Batter. Place all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a large bowl and mix to combine until well blended. Allow to sit and rest for a few minutes. Then either fold in the chocolate chips or you can sprinkle on top.
  3. Pour Batter into Muffin Pan. Evenly transfer batter into prepared muffin pan. There will be 12 oatmeal cups.
  4. Bake the Oatmeal Cups. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until the cups are set and the edges are lightly browned.

Yes! The cups can be frozen for up to 3 months. You can thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating or even reheat from frozen. You can reheat using the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute or in the oven at 350F for 5-10 minutes (depending if thawed or not) until warmed through.
