I love when we have a batch of these meal-prepped at Fit Foodie HQ because I eat them at all hours of the day. You may think this baked oatmeal with apples is strictly a breakfast only food, but they make for a great snack or dessert.
Here’s what you Need
Lucky for you these delicious baked oatmeal cups are ready in no time and with just a few ingredients. And, even if it’s not fall, apples are available year-round for your delight!
- rolled oats: we recommend using rolled oats, but you can sub quick cooking oats in any of our baked oatmeal recipes.
- homemade chai spice: Making your own chai spice is super simple. Check out the spices you need below!
- apple: green, red…you choose! Any kind of apple will work for this recipe.
- eggs: you need 2 large eggs for this recipe. If you’re looking for a baked oatmeal recipe sans eggs, check out our vegan baked oatmeal HERE.
- maple syrup: maple syrup gives these oatmeal cups a warm, fall flavor. Option to sub for another liquid sweetener.
- coconut oil: A little coconut oil goes a long way for this recipe! Make sure that you melt your coconut oil before measuring it to get an accurate measure.
- banana: Mashed banana helps sweeten this breakfast a little bit more. Option to sub applesauce, however, you may need to add a little bit more maple syrup!
- almond milk: for this recipe, any kind of milk or liquid will work.
