Prep breakfast ahead of time

As i’m sure you probably already know, i’m a huge fan of oatmeal. There are so many different ways that you can make it, and it’s never the same and never boring! I love overnight oats, baked oats, baked oatmeal, etc! This year, I wanted to focus on simple meal prep breakfast ideas for all my busy people out there.

These oatmeal cups, made four different ways are the perfect breakfast idea to make Sunday night. Store them in your fridge or freezer and pop them in the microwave to warm them up for a quick and healthy breakfast that is ready to go.

Ingredients in oatmeal cups four different ways

These easy oatmeal cups have super simple ingredients but pack plenty of delicious flavor from the mix-ins. They’re dairy free, naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and easily made gluten free with the use of gluten-free oats. Here’s everything you need:

Base: ripe bananas, almond milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and old fashioned oats- I use organic.

Mix in’s: Fresh blueberries and toasted coconut, chopped apples, dairy free chocolate chips, frozen mixed berries

Can I use steel cut oats?

I would not recommend using steel cut oats in this oatmeal cup recipe because the texture will be much different. You would need to completely change the recipe to receive the same outcome.

Can I add protein to these oatmeal cups?

Absolutely!! These oatmeal cups are 100% customizable, feel free to add in eggs or protein powder for some added protein. You can also add in whatever mix-in’s that you’d like. Try using peaches, pears or any other type of fruit.

How to store & reheat oatmeal cups

These healthy oatmeal cups make such a great meal prep breakfast for busy weeks.

  • To store: you can make these healthy oatmeal cups ahead of time and keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, or the freezer for up to one month.
  • To reheat: Once ready to eat, just reheat them in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. If frozen, reheat for 2-3 minutes.

How to make oatmeal cups four different ways

The best part about these healthy oatmeal cups is how easy they are to make! Let’s go over it briefly, but remember to always refer to the recipe card below for full details on how to make them.

  1. Prep your pan. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with muffin liners, I like to use silicon liners for sustainability and easy clean up.
  2. Mix the base ingredients. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the mashed banana, almond milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and old fashioned oats.
  3. Add in the mix in’s. Add the batter to the prepared liners and then top with the mix in’s: blueberry, coconut, apples, dairy-free chocolate chips, and frozen mixed berries.
  4. Bake & enjoy! Using a spoon, gently mix the toppings into each muffin, then bake for 25-30 minutes. Drizzle with your favorite nut butter before serving, if desired and enjoy!
