Here is another quick and easy breakfast idea for those busy mornings!  You can bake these ahead of time and heat them up on your way out the door or even eat them cold.  I like to eat them like a muffin, but you could also heat them up in a bowl with a little milk, sliced banana, and a drizzle of peanut butter!  I used PB2 and got a light peanut butter flavor, so if you want more of a peanut butter punch add another tablespoon or so.   With no flour, oils, or added sugar you can feel good about starting your day with these baked oatmeal cups!

Banana PB2 Baked Oatmeal Cups

(Makes 12 cups, 6-12 servings)

3 large ripe bananas, mashed

1 cup of milk (you can use almond milk or coconut milk if you’d like)

1 egg (or 2 egg whites)

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 3/4 cups of old fashioned oats

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1/4 teaspoon of salt (optional)

3+ tablespoons of PB2, you can use the chocolate or regular flavor (add more if you want a stronger peanut butter flavor)

1/3 cup of mini chocolate chips

Some optional mix in ideas are: chopped nuts, coconut, peanut butter chips, diced apple, flax seed meal, etc.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with foil liners.  I sprayed coconut oil spray very lightly over the whole thing to ensure my oatmeal wouldn’t stick!

In a large bowl mash your bananas.  Add milk, egg, and vanilla and whisk until smooth.  Add in oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and PB2.  Mix well then add your chocolate chips or whatever mix ins you would like.  Divide evenly between your prepared baking cups.  Bake for about 20 minutes until they are set.  I like mine a little more firm so I baked them closer to 22 minutes, if you want more of a traditional oatmeal texture bake for closer to 20 minutes.   Let sit before removing from foil wrapper.

Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.  Can be eaten cold or reheated!

  1. These look wonderful. Have you tried freezing them?

    • Thanks! I haven’t tried freezing them yet, but I think they’d do fine. I was planning to make some more this weekend so I can try and let you know! :)
