We are always looking for new recipes for breakfast that can double as a snack. These baked oatmeal cups are the perfect solution! I usually take the word oatmeal right out of the title since my kids think they don’t like oatmeal.. 😉 I just call them muffins and they are a HUGE hit! Plus my kids love that they can choose what toppings they like.
You can eat them like a muffin for an easy grab-and-go breakfast or you can eat them like oatmeal by simply putting in a bowl and stirring in a little warm milk. I store leftovers in the freezer, take one out the night before to thaw in the fridge and reheat in the microwave for about 60 seconds.

2 1/2 cups, Old Fashioned rolled oats
1/8 cup chai seeds (optional)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and honey together in a bowl.
Add in oats, chai seeds (if using), cinnamon, baking powder, salt and mix well with wet ingredients.
Finally pour in milk and combine.
Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners.
Divide mixture evenly into muffin tin cups. I used a 1/4 measuring cup, measure just a tad under 1/4 cup to make 12 servings.
Bake 30 minutes until a toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool and enjoy or freeze them in gallon freezer bags.
We like strawberries, blueberries, chocolate chips, bananas or a mixture.
