I was looking for a healthy alternative to egg cups for weekday breakfasts on the go, and this is perfect! I based it on a “Baked Oatmeal To Go” recipe found on FaceBook, but made it even healthier. They’re not very sweet as a result, though I plan to add a touch of honey (or maybe maple syrup) next time. Still quite good!
ETA: Tried making these with steel cut oats since they are healthier and lower on the glycemic index…and it was a disaster! I think this recipe requires whole oats to absorb the moisture. They didn’t cook evenly, plus they tasted bitter. Won’t make that mistake again.
3/4 cup coconut palm sugar (or low glycemic organic can sugar)
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup (optional)
1 1/2 cups almond milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
3 cups rolled oats
2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients in the order listed, whisking after each addition to combine well. Let sit 20-30 minutes. Grease 12-16 muffin tins with butter or coconut oil and fill evenly. Top with fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips if desired. Bake for 25 minutes.
