Blueberry Almond Baked Oatmeal Cups are perfect for breakfast and snack time. This is a breakfast recipe the whole family loves and I feel good about making for them!
WHAT ARE OATMEAL CUPS?
Oatmeal has been a staple food item for centuries and has a strong history in Scotland. Oats have been used in traditional porridge and gruel for many, many years for humans. Raw oats have been fed to animals for as long as people can remember.
Oats used to be considered food for the poor because they were cheap and were typically fed mostly to animals. Fast forward to the past 100 years when people began to eat oats in many different ways.
Now people recognize the high fiber content and health benefits of oats and they are very popular!
Traditional oatmeal gets boring and it is fun to experiment with new ways to eat oats. Oatmeal cups are a version of oatmeal that is baked in the oven in muffin cups.
These blueberry almond baked oatmeal cups are similar to a muffin when they are done cooking and are perfect for a grab and go breakfast for busy mornings.

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY ALMOND BAKED OATMEAL CUPS
I love recipes that freeze well and this one does! It is so easy to make up several batches of these over the weekend and we will be set for weeks to comes.
STEP ONE: PREPARE PAN
Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grab your regular size muffin pan (I love silicone muffin pans for how easy it is to remove the muffins!) and grease the muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
STEP TWO: DRY INGREDIENTS
Take a large bowl and add the following dry ingredients: old fashioned oats, sliced almonds, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.
Stir these to combine.
STEP THREE: WET INGREDIENTS
In a small bowl add the egg, vegetable oil, milk, maple syrup and the vanilla extract. Stir to combine these ingredients well.
STEP FOUR: COMBINE
Now pour the wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Mix these together well.
STEP FIVE: ADD BANANA
Now add the banana to the bowl and stir it into the mixture.
STEP SIX: ADD BLUEBERRIES
Now stir in the blueberries very gently.
STEP SEVEN: ADD TO MUFFIN PAN
Pour the mixture evenly into the twelve muffin cups.
STEP EIGHT: BAKE
Place the muffin pan into the oven and bake for 23-25 minutes until they are nice and golden brown.
When the blueberry almond baked oatmeal cups are done baking remove them from the oven and let them cool in the pan before serving!
Keep any leftovers in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. You can reheat these in the microwave when you are ready to eat them.
