Yogurt and Oatmeal Cup Ingredients
Oatmeal: You will need 2 cups of oatmeal for the base of these breakfast cups.
Peanut butter: Add in ¾ cup of peanut butter to help bind all the ingredients together well.
Maple syrup: Using 5 tablespoons of maple syrup will give these oatmeal cups wonderful flavor and sweetness.
Vanilla extract: To help enhance all the great flavors, add in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Ground cinnamon: For a lovely warm spice, use 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
Coconut oil: Use 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, melted, to prepare the muffin pan and prevent the oat cups from sticking.
Yogurt: You will need about 14 Tablespoons of Greek Yogurt (or yogurt of your choice), this is equal to about 1 cup. I like using Greek yogurt for health purposes, but use whatever yogurt you and your family enjoy.
Fruit: Top each cup with some chunks of fruit, here are a few options that are sure to taste great: Raspberries, mango, kiwi, blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries. Any of these will take these tasty cups to the next level of deliciousness.
Chocolate chips: You can even add a few mini-chocolate chips for a sweet addition to these cups.
How to make Healthy Oatmeal Breakfast Cups
Start by getting the oven preheating to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl add the oatmeal, peanut butter, cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Proceed to stir these ingredients until completely combined.
Next, melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds and then use it to grease your muffin pan. You can also use muffin liners to make it easier to remove them from the tin.
Continue to spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of the oat mixture into each well of the muffin tin. Then use the spoon to create a cup or nest in the oatmeal mixture and press down until firm. This recipe make 7 oatmeal cups, so don’t expect to fill each up.
Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. The oatmeal cups should be lightly golden brown when finished.
Remove the muffin tin from the oven and let them cool for a couple of minutes before removing them from the tin. Then set your oatmeal cups on a cooling tray and let them cool until room temperature.
After the cups have cooled, grab the yogurt and add a couple of tablespoons onto each cup.
Then garnish the oatmeal cups with the fruit and toppings.
Serve immediately and enjoy!

HOW DO YOU STORE THESE OATMEAL CUPS?
These oat cups will keep for up to 1 week if stored in an airtight container or plastic ziplocked bag, at room temperature. If you are not going to eat/serve all 7 cups, leave out the yogurt until you are ready to enjoy them and then add your toppings.
ARE THESE OATMEAL CUPS GLUTEN FREE?
Good question! While oats are naturally gluten free, during the farming process and gluten ingredients could be introduced. However, the Quaker Oat brand does offer gluten free oat options and it is clearly labeled on the packaging. You will also need to swap out the flour for your preferred GF flour option to ensure these bars are gluten free.
CAN YOU FREEZE OATMEAL CUPS?
Yes! These oatmeal cups freeze so well that it makes them a perfect quick snack or breakfast. I recommend individually wrapping each oat cup with plastic wrap and store inside of a Ziploc bag for easy access and good airtight storage. When you are ready to eat, let the cup come to room temperature for about 30-60 minutes and then add your chosen toppings to enjoy.
