I thoroughly enjoyed our extra hour today! It was nice to relax for a bit and get prepared for the week. And these baked oatmeal cups were a perfect addition to meal prep.

This is one of those staple recipes. Nothing trendy. Nothing really unique – just a simple answer to breakfast. Most of the ingredients are pantry staples. The bananas are the one exception. And not pretty yellow bananas. They need to be ripe – like about to turn to mush, heavily spotted ripe bananas. The overripe bananas will lend lots of sweetness and moisture to the oatmeal cups, which means you can also cut back on added sugars.

I’ve made this recipe several times. Instead of banana bread, it’s become my go-to recipe to use up extra bananas. Here, I’ve used sliced almonds and almond butter, but you can swap those out for different nuts or seeds. You can add dried cranberries or blueberries to the mixture too. Once the oatmeal cups are done, enjoy them warm (my fave) or at room temperature. Add a smear of nut butter or toast them up to enjoy with some yogurt for a filling breakfast.

      Yes. With the banana and just a quarter cup maple syrup, they just sweet enough to pair up with coffee or tea. Reply
