Healthy Registered Dietitian Breakfast Recipe for Oatmeal Lovers!
Calling all oatmeal lovers! This Registered Dietitian approved make-ahead breakfast (or snack!) recipe works great eaten fresh or pulled out of the freezer and reheated for busy mornings. Although you may think this is a muffin recipe, think of this more like oatmeal, conveniently baked into a cup.
Makes 12 baked oatmeal cups
What you need:
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or any other of your favorite nuts)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon (or other spices, add more or less to taste)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup real maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup blueberries
Preheat oven to 350. Grease or line a 12 cup muffin tin with muffin cups.
Mix oats, pecans, salt, baking powder, and spices. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, milk, syrup, and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients over dry, and mix well to combine. Fold in blueberries.
Fill muffin cups about halfway, and bake until just set – about 30 minutes. Cool for 10-15 minutes and remove from tin.
Can be kept in the fridge for 3 days, or in the freezer for a month.
Serve warm on their own or with plain Greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.
