Baked Oatmeal Cups

It's gloomy and rainy today and my mind is spinning with an endless task list. I fell like I want to throw away 98% of what we own and start over. I want three shirts in my closet and less than 10 wooden puzzles in the living room. I am getting rid of all high heals - I'm tired of them mocking me. I made a list this afternoon of things to clean out and seriously, if it isn't something I'd grab in a house fire, it has very little luck of surviving.

In the midst of this chaos Dylan surprised me with an epic nap yesterday. I decided to take a break and make something special for him. I want him to still feel at home in the middle of these changes. And if I know Dylan, he loves a good snack, especially one with a big raisin smile.

Baked Oatmeal Cups

2 eggs

2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt

  1. these look amazing! definitely adding to my "must make" list.

  2. Thank you! I was literally just looking for exactly this type of recipe recently!

  3. heads up: oats are not gluten free unless they are certified gluten free & the same goes for the chickpea flour.

  4. Mmmm! This sounds like the perfect travel time munchies buster snack for my husband and our our 7 year old daughter!

  5. I made these last night. I used brown rice flour and 2 bananas with only 1 and half cups applesauce. They turned out very tasty... although i have no idea how you only ended up with 12 muffins. I yielded 24. Thanks for sharing!
