Baked Oatmeal Cups (Gluten Free & Diabetic Friendly)

  |  in Blog, General, Healthy RecipesNo Comments

These grab and go breakfast cups are perfect for those who “don’t have time” for a nutritious breakfast.  You can please your entire family with this dish as they can each choose their preferred topping. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 6 packets of stevia or 1 1/2 teaspoons stevia powder or use 1/2 cup honey
  • 5 cups, Old Fashioned rolled oats { I used Bob’s Red Mill}
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 3/4 cups milk (I used 1%)
  • Optional toppings: raisins, walnuts, chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and Stevia together in a bowl.
  3. Add in oats, flax, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and mix well with wet ingredients.
  4. Finally pour in milk and combine. The batter will look runny, don’t worry!
  5. Spray a 12 and 6 capacity muffin tin with cooking spray or use cupcake liners (spray cupcake liners with nonstick cooking spray too).
    Pour mixture evenly into muffin tin cups.
  6. If using toppings add them onto the tops of muffins now. If using fresh or frozen fruit, drop it right into the batter.
  7. Bake 30 minutes until a toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool and enjoy or freeze them in gallon freezer bags.

Additional Notes:

  • Use a half cup to one cup of honey in place of stevia if you don’t have any.
  • Nutrition info is without any toppings.
  • Freeze them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag after they have cooled. Thaw overnight in refrigerator for morning you want them. Reheat 45-60 seconds.
  • If you are gluten free, make sure you are using certified gluten free oats and baking powder.
  • I used a 1/4 cup to fill each muffin and the extra batter I had was about a half cup and I “topped” off some that looked smaller.
