The oatmeal cup of all oatmeal cups is here! You must make these peanut butter chocolate chip baked oatmeal cups for a healthy breakfast idea all week long.
There is something about the peanut butter + chocolate combo that just never gets old. Some of my favorite recipes with this combo include Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Soft Serve, Healthy Peanut Butter Cups, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Yogurt Dip.
These are Healthy!
Now, this is a baked oatmeal cup you are absolutely going to love. Not only are they made with both chocolate and peanut butter, but they’re healthy!
- whole grains: this recipe only calls for 100% whole grains.
- fiber: because they’re made with rolled oats and ground oat flour, these little guys have a whopping4g fiber/muffin!
- protein-packed: these little oatmeal cups have 7g of fiber per cup. This makes them an excellent snack or breakfast!
- healthy fats: the fat content in this recipe comes mostly from the peanut butter because mashed banana helps moisten things up. In addition, we only used 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for additional added fat.
Easy Prep for the Week
One of the things I love about oatmeal cups is that they are super easy to put together. And, you can easily double or triple this recipe if you’d like to make more (or free for later!).
Mix Dry Ingredients
Begin by mixing all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. W
Mix Wet Ingredients
Then in a separate bowl, mash your banana. Then, whisk in your eggs and the rest of ingredients (minus the coconut oil).
Coconut oil tip: always add the melted coconut oil last..after you mix together the wet and dry ingredients. We do this so that the melted coconut oil does not harden with the rest of the wet ingredients!
Combine wet and dry ingredients and finally, add in melted coconut oil and mix again.
Transfer batter into a greased muffin tin (about 2 heaping tablespoons per muffin). And top with more chocolate chips. Bake at 350ºF for about 17 minutes.
Can I add protein powder?
Feel free to add about 1/4 cup of protein powder in place of 1/4 cup of oat flour. Either whey or plant-based will work!
How do I make these lower in fat?
To make these oatmeal cups lower in fat, omit the coconut oil. Assess how wet your batter is and add a splash more almond milk if it feels too thick.
Can you freeze these?
These oatmeal cups can easily be frozen. Let them cool completely and then transfer them onto a baking sheet. Freeze for 2 hours and then transfer into a freezer-safe gallon-size plastic bag.
Can I make these vegan?
We have not tried to make these vegan personally, but we suggest swapping the 2 farm eggs for flax eggs.
How long will these last?
These baked oatmeal cups will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Where should I store these oatmeal cups?
Store oatmeal cups in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Alternatively, you can store them on the countertop in an airtight container for around 2 days.
Storage tip: always let your oatmeal cups or baked goods fully cool before transferring into their storage container.

Super yummy and easy to make and healthy!
I love ANY excuse to get some chocolate in at breakfast. These are a great balance of pb, chocolate, and oats that taste hearty and not too sweet. My go-to meal prep breakfast for the week!
These have become a weekly go-to. I usually eat one as a pre-workout snack in the morning. I’ve never liked warm oatmeal (something about the texture) but I love eating these cold out of the fridge. Thank you!
Are these mini muffins or regular size? I can’t really tell from the pictures!
Can i ask how much is one cup here? Coz one cup can refer to different amount in different areas. I tried to search in the website but didn’t find an instruction. Would appreciate it if you could specify it. Many thanks!
Hey Evey! If you are referring to the serving size, one cup is “one baked oatmeal cup.”
These are SO good! I have made these a few times over the last few months. Such a good, healthy snack. I typically just freeze them from the start, taking a few out every couple days to keep in the fridge. Highly recommend microwaving them for 20 seconds before enjoying 😉
I was wondering about microwaving them when taking out of the fridge!! Thank you!!
Can’t wait to make these
The whole family loves these! Combines my favorite combo – banana, peanut butter and chocolate!
Baked this week! Used two medium bananas, and added vanilla extract/maple syrup for a little more sweetness. Omitted coconut oil because I didn’t have it – turned out great and tasted healthy! Love that it has 3 cups of oats
What can I use besides banana? My husband is allergic.
Apple Sauce. I’m also intolerant to bananas.
I’m allergic to coconut. What other oil and how much would you recommend?
I wonder if you could use extra virgin olive oil. It’s also a healthy oil to cook with. I use it often in my recipes that call for oil.
3 cups rolled oats???
I can taste them. Scrumptious!😋😋
love these a LOT. i was babysitting today and quickly whipped them up for the kids’ snack as well as my sis’s after school snack. they gobbled them up.😁 mom thought they weren’t quite sweet enough. personally i thought they were perfect. i used 2% milk. thanks again!
Just made them. They are delicious!! I used regular 2% milk, olive oil and almond flour.
Muy interesante artículo y deliciosa receta!!
Hi! I’m about to try this recipe and was curious how much oats i would need to blend in my own to get 1/2 cup? Thanks for your help!
