Muffins meet oatmeal in these moist and tasty grab-and-go oatmeal cups. Feel free to swap out the pecans for any other nut--walnuts would be great--or omit them altogether. Make a batch on the weekend and keep them in your fridge or freezer for quick and easy breakfasts all week. Reheat in the microwave for about 40 seconds.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.

  • Combine oats, milk, bananas, brown sugar, eggs, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Fold in pecans. Divide the mixture among the muffin cups (about 1/3 cup each). Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Tips

Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.

To make ahead: Wrap airtight and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Equipment: 12-cup muffin tin

Thought they were fantastic! But then I love banana bread. Unlike another commenter I tasted lots of banana. Maybe the trick is using really ripe bananas. Read More

These are what I would call "earnest". I eat them because I know they are good for me - not because I wake up and say "yippee, I get to eat one of those cups I made". They are dry and pretty flavourless. Read More

I jokingly told my wife that I was making suet cups. They are very rich and heavy. One is enough to last you until your mid-morning snack. Moist and full of flavor. We both loved them. Made according to the recipe. *REFRIGERATE! They will spoil if you leave them out for more than a few days. Read More

I replaced the brown sugar with a small banana. That gave the muffins a subtle sweetness and probably added to their moistness. Read More

I substituted the 3 cups of rolled oats for 2.5 cups of Oat flour and 1/2 cup rolled oats. Also increased baking powder from 1tsp to 1tablespoon. It turned out great!!! I would add either some raisins or cranberries in next batch though. Read More

I really liked this recipe! Especially yummy with a little bit of peanut butter on the side. Easy to make and baked up like a regular muffin. I may add a few chocolate chips next time, worth the extra calories Read More

I LOVE this recipe!!! It's easy delicious and is my "go to" breakfast! I add more nuts than listed and include some steel cut oats for added texture. I often skip the vanilla because it just gets lost with all the other flavors. I feel off when I don't have these around. Thanks for this earth-shattering recipe! Read More
