Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1 cup milk (any kind of milk will work)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium apple, diced into small pieces
  • Optional: Chopped nuts or seeds for added crunch (e.g., walnuts, pecans, or sunflower seeds)

Instructions:

Warm up the oven to 350°F (175°C) and put paper plates in a muffin pan or spray cooking spray on the cups to lightly grease them.

Old-fashioned rolled oats, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, if you want, and salt should all be put in a big bowl and mixed well.

To make the sauce, put big eggs, applesauce that hasn’t been sweetened, honey or maple syrup, milk, and vanilla extract in a different bowl.

Add the wet mixture to the bowl with the oat mixture and mix it well by shaking it together. Add the apple dices and any chopped nuts or seeds you want for extra crunch.

Fill up each muffin cup about three quarters of the way to the top with the mixture. Because the oven is already hot, bake the oatmeal cups for 20 to 25 minutes, or until they are set and have a light golden top.

Once the oatmeal cups are cool enough, take them out of the muffin tin and place them on a wire rack to cool fully.

Eat it warm or at room temperature, with or without yogurt, fresh fruit, or nut butter on top.

Any food that is left over can be kept in the fridge for up to a week in a container that doesn’t let air in. You can also freeze oatmeal cups to keep them for longer.
