When my 5 year old son tried these he said, “Mommy, with this you will win Chopped champion!” I’m not so sure about that, but these are a quick and tasty breakfast or after school snack!  You can bake them on the weekend and have breakfast all week, but they are also pretty quick to whip up on a weekday morning!

I used simply fruit strawberry jam because I didn’t want a bunch of added sugar, but any jam would work.  Add some fun toppings or mix ins like; chopped peanuts, coconut flakes, mini chocolate chips, fresh/frozen fruit, and anything else that sounds good to you!  I topped ours with another small scoop of jam, some melted peanut butter, and a tiny bit of honey!  I hope you enjoy them!

Here they are before I baked them!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Baked Oatmeal Cups

(makes 12-15 cups)

2 cups of old fashioned oats

3 heaping teaspoons of peanut powder (look for one without added sugar)

1/2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/4 tsp of salt

1 cup of almond milk

1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce

1 egg or 2 egg whites

1/3 cup of peanut butter

1/3 cup of low sugar or no sugar added jam (I used simply fruit strawberry!)

1 tsp of melted coconut oil

*optional 1 cup of chopped fruit (I used fresh strawberries) or any other mix ins you’d like!

Here they are fresh out of the oven!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a muffin tin.  I just used coconut oil spray because I was out of liners, but I think the foil liners would work great!

In a large bowl combine all ingredients and stir.  (yes, it’s that easy!)

Scoop evening into prepared tin.  If you’d like, add some chopped peanuts, coconut, fresh fruit, or whatever topping you like on top!

Bake for 14-17 minutes depending on how big you made them etc.  Let cool then remove from pan.  Store in the fridge and eat cold or heat up!

Enjoy!

  1. Hi, Allison! Peanut powder? What’s that and where would I find it? Thanks! Kath

    • Hey Kathy! You would find it next to the peanut butter. I know Jif makes one. It just looks like powdered peanut butter! Nice to cook with because it has the nice flavor but less calories :)
