I posted a pic of these and people sent requests for the recipe, so here it is.
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 cups milk (whatever you like)
- 1 cup mashed banana or applesauce
- 1/4 maple syrup (whatever you have)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4-1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
I made the first batch like this, but I wanted to change it up and for the second batch I used dried blueberries, instead of chips, and I added 1/4 tsp almond extract for Blueberry Almond Cups.
Mix it all together. No particular order. I mix wet and then add dry, but for this recipe it doesn’t really matter.
Add chips or dried fruit.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes. I let mine rest for 10 or more. I use GF oats and I think they respond a bit differently than traditional oats.
I scooped with a 1/4 cup measuring cup into my muffin pans. My pans release without spray or paper cups, but do what you think is best. I filled each well….and then added whatever was left to each cup, especially the liquid that was at the end. You could possibly get more than a dozen. I just wanted an even 12.
Bake for 30 min in a 350° oven.
Cool and eat. We sometimes add a drizzle of syrup on top.
I keep mine in the pan and cover with foil. They last a couple of days here….so not sure what the shelf life is.
Note: Banana works better, but applesauce was all I had round 2, so I was happy with the results.
I hope these are easy and delicious for you! I am not a professional food blogger, so I apologize for the lack of picture steps. I also make sure all my ingredients are gluten free.
