#FruitSoHard - Baked Oatmeal Cups

Monday, November 21, 2016


So I had a lot of overripe bananas...

I've said this before, haven't I? Probably time and time again. Because I buy a LOT of bananas, and I don't always get through them before they're overripe. I freeze a lot of them and make delicious nice cream too. But I inevitably end up making some kind of muffin or bake with overripe bananas. So here is my latest creation--baked oatmeal cups! I hope you enjoy! 



Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1.75 cups oats
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 pinch Himalayan sea salt 
  • 1/2 apple, chopped (I used pink lady)
  • 1/4 c walnuts, chopped

Directions:

  1. Mix flax and water. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients. Stir well. Then stir in flax/water mixture. 
  3. Fill 9 muffin cups with mixture. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy.

These can be easily modified to suit your tastes. Feel free to add peanut butter, chocolate chips, berries, other nuts, etc. Choose whatever mix-ins you like better and bake! You can even make a base batter and then make several different kinds of oatmeal cups to everyone's liking. Makes breakfast with a family of picky eaters that much easier. :) 

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.
