When our boys wake up, they go straight to the kitchen and ask what is for breakfast. I have learned to be prepared so there are no tears in the morning. They wake up hungry and want food ASAP. I always keep Banana Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups in the freezer so I can pull them out for my hungry boys. They reheat in seconds and Caleb and Maxwell love them…and so do I. I always heat up one for me too:)

We are big baked oatmeal fans and I love making a big pan, but sometimes it is fun to switch things up. These baked oatmeal cups are easy to make and fun to eat! They are made with oats, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, pure maple syrup, coconut oil, bananas, and blueberries. I always have these ingredients on hand so I can whip these baked oatmeal muffins up all the time and anytime. I like to use Almond Breeze shelf stable AlmondMilk because I always have it in the pantry. The unsweetened vanilla is my favorite and is perfect in these oatmeal cups!

I love the individual portion sizes. They are super cute and make the perfect grab and go breakfast. I keep a batch in our freezer at all times so I can pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds for an easy and healthy breakfast.

The oatmeal cups also make a great snack. You can pack them in lunch boxes, take them on road trips, plane trips, hikes, or picnics! They are an all day, good for you snack! I took a few muffins on my trip to Sacramento a few weeks ago and they were the perfect plane pick me up!

Almond Orchard Tour

So what did I do in Sacramento? I toured an almond orchard with Almond Breeze. We have worked with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze for years, so I was super excited to see the almond orchards up close and personal. Plus, I got to hangout with some of my favorite blogging friends.

Almond Orchard Tour

We visited a family farm that was covered with beautiful almond trees. The trees were in full bloom and we lucked out with a beautiful, sunshine day. We walked through the orchard and learned all about almond growing. To be honest, I didn’t know almond trees were so beautiful. Now, I love almonds even more:) The grower we visited is a third generation almond grower and is very passionate about almonds and his orchard.

It was such a fun trip! Thanks Almond Breeze!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed plus 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats  gluten free if necessary
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 large ripe banana mashed (½ cup mashed)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1 cup Almond Breeze Almondmilk Unsweetened Vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or 2 tablespoons brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the ground flaxseed and water. Let sit while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the mashed banana, flaxseed mixture, melted coconut oil, almond milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Gently stir in the blueberries. Pour the mixture into the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup evenly. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until the cups are a golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Remove from the pan and serve warm.
  • Note-if you don’t need the recipe to be vegan you can use one egg instead of the flaxseed and water mixture. The oatmeal cups will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days in an airtight container or in the freezer for up to 1 month. Reheat in the microwave.

    These are excellent!  Not too sweet, just the right amount of banana. I liked your addition of blueberries, but I also make them with lots of cinnamon, a variety of nuts, pumpkin, sunflower and chia seeds and raisins. Everything but the kitchen sink. hehehe
    Thank your for a healthy recipe.
     Absolutely delicious.

    This is my go to recipe. I love making and freezing these for my toddler son (and myself!). Pretty healthy with berries, flaxseeds, and oatmeal but ridiculously tasty. Thank you so much for making this recipe. Its the only one of its kind that’ll do.

  3. 5 stars
    Yes ,it tastes good for me. Now I’ll c if the little kids like them??? It’s definitely a great way to eat some oats everyday. Thanks. 

  4. Can’t wait to try these! I teach art to children and in my last class I have always brought a cupcake or donut for the kids to draw and paint before they eat it. I have become a healthier eater so…I am going to make these for them instead of sweet processed food! I’ll give them the recipe too, win win!!

  5. What a great breakfast treat! I used the flax seed and butter combo and the muffins turned out well. I used a small spatula to get them out of the muffin tin. Thanks for the recipe!

    YUM! I tried to rate these with the stars, but I wasn’t able to click on them FYI! I made these yesterday for my toddler- I used a regular egg instead of a flax one and whole milk. They’re a hit! I stashed a bunch in the freezer for quick breakfast and snacks! I might try adding some flax and chia seeds in future batches for an extra boost of nutrition. Thanks for the mama and baby approved recipe!

    Note to those making these for babes: don’t forget to halve or quarter the blueberries!

  7. How can I make these come out a bit more on the crispy side instead of a cake/muffin like texture. Should I just bake them a bit longer?
    Thank you!

    Awesome Maria! Made a batch for my husband to take to the ranch in the morning and he loved them! Not overly sweet and a great texture from the oatmeal. Grab and go foods like these for mornings are a life-saver! Another winner Maria!!
