Baked Oatmeal Muffins

oatmeal, muffin, gluten free

I’m telling you… oats make the best breakfast. When I’m not eating overnight oats, I’m eating warm oatmeal. When I’m not eating traditional warm oatmeal, I cook my oats and then top them with eggs over-easy, avocado and salsa.

In this case, my oatmeal is baked in a muffin tin. I was a little nervous about this one because I didn’t think it would fill me up. But, two muffins held me off until lunch time. The ingredients are essentially identical to what I put in my overnight oats (+eggs) — so DUH, it filled me up.

This recipe makes six servings. Double the ingredients if you are cooking for two people or if you want to freeze a ton. These baked oatmeal muffins are good to store in the fridge for 4-5 days, but longer in the freezer.

Baked Oatmeal Muffins

Serves: 6

Ingredients

2 Tbsp nut butter

2 bananas

3 eggs

1/2 cup almond milk

2 Tbsp ground flaxseed or chia seeds

1.5 cup oats

1 tsp cinnamon

Optional: sweetener like honey, stevia or maple syrup; chocolate chips; blueberries; cacao nibs

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.  In a mixing bowl, mash the banana and nut butter together (using a fork works). I like to leave a few chunks of banana.
  2. To the mashed banana, add the eggs and milk. Combine well .
  3. Stir in the oats, flaxseed and cinnamon (plus any optional ingredients), and then let the batter rest for 5 minutes. Resting the batter lets the flaxseed absorb some of the liquid.
  4. Pour batter into 6 large muffin molds or 12 cupcake-sized molds. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

Store in the fridge and eat two for breakfast. Serve warm or cold with yogurt or a piece of fruit! What is your favorite on-the-go breakfast?
