How to Make Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal cups

 

This One Bowl recipe not only requires you 5 seconds to prepare, there is also no additional cleaning needed. That’s right. Because all you need is one bowl, no blender or mixer needed.

 

 

First, combine all the wet ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk the oats, apple spices and baking soda in a separate bowl.

Second, add the dry ingredients in the wet ingredients, and mix well.

Then, fill the greased muffin pan with ¾ way full.

Bake 25 – 30 minutes or until tooth pick come out clean.

Last but not least, wait until the oatmeal cups cool (15 – 20 minutes). Use a butter knife or spoon to scrape the wall around the muffins and take them out of the muffin pan, in case the muffins have had any sticking to the pan.

 

Tips for Making the Best Baked Oatmeal Cups

 

 

  1. First of all, coat a muffin pan with a generous amount of coconut oil. Or use a silicon non-sticking muffin liner. Otherwise, it will be pretty hard and messy to get these cups out of the pan.
  2. Sauté the apples in cinnamon and coconut oil lightly before mixing in the batter.
  3. Wait until they are cooled enough before taking them out of the muffin pan (I know, it’s hard).
  4. The batter will be more liquidy than our normal muffin or cake batter. Trust, me the oats will soak up the liquid. And it will turn out so moist, soft and chewy.
