Baked oatmeal cups: dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, and portable! An easy grab-n-go breakfast made with healthy ingredients.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients: oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: milk, applesauce, honey, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in up to 1 cup of add-ins of choice (see note below for options).
Divide the oatmeal mixture evenly among the muffin cups. I use an ice cream scooper and gently press the mixture down in the muffin cup with my fingers.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the centers are firm to the touch.
Let the pan cool, preferably on a wire rack, for at least 15 minutes. The oatmeal cups will firm up as they cool and shouldn’t be removed from the pan too quickly.
Enjoy the baked oatmeal cups within a few days (stored in the fridge) or store in the freezer for up to 3 months. Check out my favorite food storage containers here.
Options for add-ins: mini chocolate chips, fresh or frozen blueberries, shredded coconut, chopped nuts, freeze-dried fruit, dried fruit. Use up to 1 cup of add-ins total. You can use 1 cup of one add-in or mix a couple of add-ins to equal 1 cup total.
