Good morning! Last week I was saying how I (Bridget) have been on a hunt for quick and easy breakfasts. I found another recipe with oats on Pinterest. I liked that you can make this recipe with different ingredients. Although, I decided to just make them all one way for the first time.
This recipe comes from The Wholesome Dish. After reading through her ingredient list, I immediately said, oh, these should be good. They have brown sugar! ha! Last week’s breakfast cookies didn’t have sugar so I had high hopes for these baked oatmeal cups!
The ingredients (my alteration is bolded):
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1 1/2 cups skim milk (or whatever milk you like) (I used 2%)
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- Optional: your favorite toppings (fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.) (I used chocolate chips)
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 350. Place muffin liners in your muffin tin. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add applesauce, milk, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk until well combined. Sir in the oats, baking powder (and if using one topping like me, you can add it in now). Mix well. Add 1/4 cup of the oat mixture to each muffin cup. If you’re adding more than one topping, here is where you will add your favorite toppings to each cup. Push the toppings down into the mixture with a spoon. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool for at least 5 minutes (I’d say more like 15 minutes to get a clean liner). Store in an airtight container or freeze in a freezer zip lock bag.
You guys. These were SO good! I put 6 in the fridge and the rest in the freezer. I can have one in the morning and I didn’t get hungry all morning. These were perfect for my quick and easy breakfast I was on a hunt for.
