What’s In Baked Oatmeal Cups?
One of the best parts about these baked oatmeal cups is that they are endlessly customizable to what you already have on hand in your fridge of pantry.
Here’s the exact ingredients we used for ours:
- Rolled Oats (Quick oats would work as well)
- Peanut Butter (Try almond butter, or a nut free alternative like Wow Butter)
- Maple Syrup (You can sweeten with any of your favorite liquid sweeteners like agave or brown rice syrup)
- Vanilla Extract (Sorry, don’t have a swap for this one)!
- Spelt Flour (Whole Wheat, Gluten Free… They will all work)!
- Your favorite jam (We used Bonne Maman’s intense spreads and they worked AMAZING)!
That’s it. You just need six simple ingredients to have a delicious breakfast or snack ready to go for the week.
Do You Need To Refrigerate Baked Oatmeal?
Since this Vegan Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe contains no eggs or dairy, you really don’t need to refrigerate these. We suggest storing on your countertop for quick access, in an air tight sealed container.
These oatmeal cups will last you about seven days, but I really doubt they’ll last that long! My fiance Jesse ate our first batch within TWO DAYS.
If you’re wanting to store these away for a busy week, you can also freeze oatmeal cups. Simply freeze again in an airtight container or ziplock, and thaw on your countertop.
What Jam Should I Use For These Baked Oatmeal Cups?
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’d know I’m literally obsessed with Bonne Maman’s jams! They are made of entirely real fruit, and are one of the most successful food brands in the world for a reason. The quality and taste of their jams are truly unmatched.
Should I Heat Up These Baked Oatmeal Cups?
We wouldn’t suggest reheating these baked oatmeal cups in the microwave because of the jam. Things can get really drippy and messy. But if you do they are also delicious heated! Just enjoy them with a fork and knife.
