Oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast for as long as I can remember. Mind you, I didn’t always take the time to bake it. I would cook it in water and then I would stir in a little cinnamon and brown sugar (and maybe a little milk).
There are so many wonderful and delicious ways to prepare old fashioned oats. They can be baked or prepared the night before. Overnight oats can be a real deal changer, and they don’t need to be boring either. Have you tried my Neapolitan Overnight Oats? I’ve even made oatmeal chocolate chip cookie cereal. You can make savory oats too…so yummy!! The possibilities are endless!
- 2 ¼ cups (200 grams) old fashioned oats, divided
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon fine kosher salt
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
- ¼ cup honey (84 grams)
- ½ cup almond milk (120 grams)
- ½ cup banana (130 grams) mashed
- ½ cup *raspberries (61 grams)
- ½ cup *blueberries (74 grams)
Prepare muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside until ready to use.
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Blend ¼ cup (40 grams) of the oats into a flour consistency.
In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 cups (160 grams) of oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mash the banana. To the same bowl, add the beaten eggs, honey, almond milk and vanilla. Whisk to combine.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until everything is completely mixed.
Add the berries and gently mix until combined.
Using a large scoop (or ¼ measuring cup), fill the muffin cups and bake for 16-18 minutes. Makes 12
Remove from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes in the pan. Remove the oatmeal berry cups and eat. I like to drizzle them with a little agave syrup (maple syrup or honey works great too!).
*You can use fresh or frozen berries.
Extra oat cups can be frozen or stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Heat in the oven before eating.
I hope you make these yummy oat cups, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi. I would love to hear from you and see your photos.
