There are days when I need to grab breakfast and head out the door, pronto! A friend shared this recipe with me several months ago and said these little oatmeal cupcakes are super easy to make and are great for those rushed mornings when you are trying to get out the door. I made a batch and she was right! These baked oatmeal cupcakes are simple to make and taste amazing! And guys…these even freeze well!
This recipe is fun because you can mix things up a bit and add so many different types of ingredients. For example, my friend made a batch with chocolate chips and shredded coconut. I chose to make this recipe with fresh blueberries and pecans. The variety of substitutions are endless! Here are some fun ingredients for you to try in this recipe:
- Chocolate chips
- Shredded coconut
- Ground flaxseed
- Dried fruit
The thing I love about this recipe is that these baked oatmeal cupcakes are naturally gluten free and they don’t contain any yeast. If you look back at My Story, you’ll understand my issue with yeast. We stay away from yeast in our house. These are yeast free!
So, stop skipping breakfast and make a batch of these baked oatmeal cupcakes! These are perfect for a “grab and go” breakfast or even as a mid-morning snack. You can literally grab a couple and throw them in your bag as you head out the door or head to your next meeting or event. Super convenient option here!
Oh…and these Baked Oatmeal Cupcakes go so wonderfully with a nice hot cup of fresh brewed coffee. Are you sold yet? Remember – you can freeze these and pull them out for another day! Ummm…so yummy! Happy Eats!
