Baked Oatmeal Cups
Great for breakfast or a snack on-the-run.
- Canola oil for spraying pan
- 2 cups (500 mL) old fashioned oats (regular or gluten-free)
- ½ cup (125 mL) sweetened flaked coconut
- 1½ tbsp (22 mL) brown sugar, divided
- 1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder
- 3 ripe bananas
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) melted butter or melted coconut oil
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) honey
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) water
- 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
- ¼ cup (50 mL) fresh blueberries, mini chocolate morsels, dried cranberries, or raisins
Combine the oats, coconut, 1 tbsp (15 mL) of brown sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl.
Place the bananas in a medium bowl and mash them with the Mix ‘N Masher.
Add the melted butter or oil, honey, and water to the bananas and stir to combine.
Pour the banana mixture into the oat mixture and stir to combine. Gently fold in your mix-ins.
Use the Large Scoop to transfer a full scoop of the mixture evenly into each well of the pan, packing it down gently with the back of the scoop.
Combine the remaining ½ tbsp (7 mL) of brown sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle it on top of each oatmeal cup.
Bake for 22–24 minutes, or until the oats are golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven. Cool for 5 minutes in the pan before serving.

These oatmeal cups are a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack. You can freeze them in a resealable plastic bag or a Leakproof Glass Container. To thaw, transfer them to the refrigerator until they’re defrosted, or microwave them on HIGH for about 30 seconds.
To turn these oatmeal cups into boats, use the round Boat Press after the cups come out of the oven. Cut 2 Granny Smith apples into chunks. Place them into the Manual Food Processor with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of brown sugar and ¼ tsp (1 mL) of ground cinnamon. Process until the apples are chopped. Spoon the apple mixture into the oatmeal boats.
