I have another baked oatmeal cup recipe for you. My plan was to share this later in the week but I keep getting LOTS of emails asking for the recipe so your wish is my command. I will share this recipe today.

This recipe was inspired by a lot of overly ripe bananas sitting on my counter. I know groundbreaking. Most of them I froze for smoothies but decided to keep a couple out for because I had the urge to make a banana recipe. At first I thought banana bread. But then I thought if I make banana bread we will eat that loaf by the end of the day and I wanted to make something that would last a little longer than that. I also thought breakfast cookies but again those would be gone by the end of the day. My kids can’t resist any cookie and quite frankly neither can I. Then my recipe light bulb went off. Banana and chocolate chip baked oatmeal! My kids love baked oatmeal but for some reason they know this is just a breakfast food so they don’t inhale it all in one sitting.

This baked oatmeal recipe is scrumptious! It definitely has the flavors of banana bread and a breakfast cookie wrapped up in a wholesome baked oatmeal cup. I used two ripe medium bananas for this recipe. When I mashed them up they equaled about 1 cup.

The chocolate chips are obviously a treat, especially for breakfast. If you want to leave them out then go ahead. However, there is only ½ cup in the recipe so if you need a little chocolate fix then throw some in. Go ahead and throw them in, you will be happy you did.

Just like my other baked oatmeal cup recipes these freeze wonderfully. After they are cooled wrap individually in plastic wrap then place in a large freezer bag. I warm mine up in the microwave for 2 minutes on high. I recommend heating up along side a coffee mug of water. This little freezer cooking tip will keep the texture of the baked oatmeal cup soft and moist.

The banana and pure maple syrup in the recipe adds a good amount of sweetness. But if you want more then pour a little extra maple syrup over the top before you eat it.

Each baked oatmeal cup is 202 calories and 6 weight watchers points plus.

Some readers ask about the type of muffin pan I use and recommend. I like this Wilton 12 Cup Muffin Pan. It’s inexpensive, a #1 best seller on Amazon, and has good reviews.

Notes
Make ahead instructions


Bake oatmeal cups completely and let cool. Then wrap each one individually in plastic wrap, place in a freezer bag, and freeze. Warm up in the microwave. First, remove plastic wrap. Then place on a microwave safe dish and heat up for 2 minutes on high. Put a coffee mug of water in while it heats up. This keeps it from drying out.

  1. What could I use in place of coconut oil ?

  2. Yay! Thanks for sharing. These look so good! Anything with chocolate and banana I’m in!

  3. sarah van drunen says:

    Since you emailed all 3 kinds of the oatmeal cups I have made all 3!! The banana & ch.chip are in the oven now. My kids LOVE them! I use them as a snack.

    Thanks!!

  4. These look delicious and are such a fun twist on oatmeal! 🙂

  5. what is the secret to measuring coconut oil?
    since the recipes call for it melted, last time I ended up with a mess trying to measure it out correctly before melting it.
    dumb question?

  6. These look really good, but are they really 25 Weight Watchers Plus points?

  7. Wow! These look great! Thanks for sharing the recipe. 😀

  8. Hi! I decided to make this recipe and have a serving for breakfast. They were very delicious and i enjoyed them, but when i input it into the app myfitnesspal one serving showed up as 957 calories! It is not a mistake because i tried multiple times. Why does this seem so much higher than what you have listed?

  9. Just made these this morning…so delicious! I used almond milk and added 2T of PB2 (powdered peanut butter), will add more the next time.

  10. Marti Schmidt says:

    The recipe list 25 WW+ points per muffin. The actual number is 10 and if you cut the chocolate chips in half it comes out to 7 1/2 points.

  11. Just came out of the oven and finally got a chance to taste after letting them cool. These are def “healthy”. Nothing bad about it but don’t think you’ll be eating a oatmeal cookie lol. First bite, they are oatmeal-y but have a crunch from the top layer too. I added choc chips and some walnuts. Walnuts were perfect bc it made my brain think they were a muffin 😉 Great breakfast on the go but I’m curious what my anti-health nut husband thinks about these. Thanks for the recipe!

  12. Hi! I made the oatmeal cups yesterday. I followed your recipe to the T and it was runny. Is that how it is suppose to be? I cooked the cups 10 minutes longer than suggested. I am going to try some of your other muffin recipes. Thanks!

  13. P.S. I added raisins instead of the chips. I was craving oatmeal raisin cookies. I thought this recipe was healthier! ; )

  14. I made these and they’re very good. Are they seriously only 202 calories each? Seems too good to be true, LOL – especially with chocolate chips!
