How To Make Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal Cups
Prepare for baking: Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit. Prepare a 12 hole muffin pan by greasing with nonstick cooking spray, or by lining with muffin liners.
Combine the oatmeal cup ingredients: Grab a large bowl, then add in the wet ingredients; bananas, egg, coconut milk, and maple syrup. Whisk to fully combine, then whisk in the baking powder, vanilla extract, and cinnamon.
Add the oats: Once the base of the mixture is combined, stir in the oats, blueberries, bananas, and coconut shreds making sure the mixture is evenly distributed.
Bake the banana-baked oatmeal: Spoon the oatmeal mixture into the prepared muffin tins making sure each muffin cup is ¾ full. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the muffins are fully cooked through. Let them cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
- Use rolled oats. Make sure you purchase rolled oats and not instant oats as instant oats will change the texture of the oatmeal cups.
- Reheating: To reheat oatmeal cups that have been in stored in the fridge, simply preheat your oven to 325F and add the oatmeal cups to a sheet pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are warmed through.
- Gluten Free: To make gluten free baked oatmeal cups, you can use certified gluten free oats to make this recipe. Also be sure to check the ingredients on any seasonings to make sure they do not contain wheat ingredients.
- Vegan: To make a vegan version, you’ll need to use an egg substitute such as a flax or chia egg to bind the ingredients together.
- To add a bit of sweet chocolatey flavor, mix a ½ cup of mini chocolate chips into the batter or sprinkle some on top before baking.
- Add some chopped nuts for extra crunch and texture. You can use chopped pecans, walnuts, or sliced almonds.
- Change up the fruit by replacing the diced banana with your favorite diced apples or additional berries.
