Hello! Happy Thursday (or whatever day you may be reading this)!
This yummy recipe is a filling, sweet treat that’s perfect for breakfast or as a snack! These easy and tender oatmeal cups are made from simple ingredients with a rolled oats base (no flour), combined together with mashed bananas (no eggs), and loaded with chocolate chips and blueberries (so good together).
They are delicious fresh out of the oven. Melted, gooey chocolate, bursting fresh blueberries, and soft, chewy oats are perfect to serve on a lazy morning or for brunch.
I suggest serving them with a side of yogurt. I like the tangy flavour of plain Greek yogurt to contrast the sweet flavours of the oatmeal cups.
They are awesome cooled down and great to eat as a mid-day snack! Easy to eat by hand or to make a day ahead of time. They heat up well in the microwave or oven too.
I hope you enjoy this recipe for Blueberry Chocolate Oatmeal Cups!
So, how do you make these oatmeal cups? (Full ingredient amounts and instructions in the recipe card down below)
Combine together the dry ingredients (oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt) in one bowl and the wet ingredients (bananas, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract) in another bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix to combine. Fold in most of the blueberries and chocolate chips.
Line a large muffin pan or spray the pan with cooking spray. Scoop the batter three-fourths full in each muffin cup and top with reserved blueberries and chocolate chips.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until firm to the touch and brown on the sides. Let it cool for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy warm or cooled.
How do you store these oatmeal cups?
Completely cool the oatmeal cups and store in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator for up to five days.
If freezing, let them cool completely and store in a freezer bag in a single layer or in a freezer-safe container with parchment paper separating each layer.
Re-heat in the oven at a low temperature (200 degrees F) or in the microwave (heat at 20 second intervals until tender throughout).
