How Do You Make Oatmeal Cups?

You won’t believe how easy these yogurt cups are to make.

Start by putting the quick oats, applesauce, honey, chia seeds, ground cinnamon, and salt into a large bowl. Mix it to combine. Then evenly divide the mixture between 6 muffin cups in your muffin pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Press the mixture into each tin, forming the cup shape.

If you wanted you could switch the honey for pure maple syrup. If you wanted additional protein, you could add a scoop of vanilla protein powder. You would need to up your applesauce to a third of a cup. You could also add a splash of vanilla extract to the mixture.

Then bake in a preheated oven. Let them cool a few minutes in the pan before removing them to cool completely. You can make these oatmeal cups the day before and just keep them in an airtight container at room temperature until you need to use them.

    I am late with this (since I made it for a Christmas Brunch) but these were a hit! I used a mini muffin pan and they were beautiful, healthy and delicious! I shared the recipe several times!

    1. if you used them in a muffin tin, how does it stay in that shape, doesn’t if flatten out for a brunch?

      1. They are baked in the tin and that’s what gets them to hold their shape.

  2. I just made 66 of these for my daughters wedding brunch! Can’t wait to taste one. 😀 Do they need to be refrigerated or can they be stored at room temp?

  3. 3 stars
    These got mixed reviews from my family. Most thought they tasted ok- one said really good- but the texture was odd. I expected these to be crispy, but they are an odd chewy texture.

  4. Hi. The oatmeal cups look very tasty. Do you have the nutritional information … calories, sugar, fat, sodium, etc.?

  5. Can you use Old fashioned oats instead of Quick oats in the oatmeal yogurt cups? They look wonderful by the way!

    1. Hi Colleen! I’ve never tried, so I’m not certain. My guess is that you’d need to cook them longer though.

    1. I did! Made them Friday for a Sunday brunch. I kept them in a glass dish covered right with aluminum foil then after the brunch I put them in a Tupperware container. It’s Monday and they’re still soft and so delicious!!

  7. I am currently making these for Teacher Appreciation Breakfast Pitch-In in the morning. I altered the recipe for mini bite size cups. Just baked at 350° for 6 minutes. Filling with yogurt in the morning to prevent them from getting soggy. Topping with cut up berries (raspberries and blackberries, blueberries and strawberries).

  8. This is such a great idea, Maryann! I can’t wait to try it. I think this would be a good, healthier snack at the office instead of donuts and cookies.
