Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Cups

Baked oatmeal cups are an easy and healthy breakfast that can be make ahead of time. They freeze well for weekly meal prep or for a quick on-the-go breakfast.

Last year I was all about overnight oats. And while I still enjoy them, I’ve been wanting a little change. Enter baked oatmeal. Baked oatmeal cups are a delicious way to enjoy oatmeal.

When the oatmeal is baked, they are chewy with a tender interior. I really love the texture.

You can customize with various berries, dried fruit, and nuts. The flavor combinations are endless! So far I’ve made blueberry, banana, almond, cinnamon apple and peanut butter chocolate chip.

I usually make about two dozen at once and store some in the fridge and some in the freezer. I reheat mine in the microwave.

Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Cups

Baked blueberry oatmeal cups can be made ahead of time for an easy, on-the-go breakfast.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk (low fat, fat free, whole are all fine)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking oil spray.
  2. In a large bowl, add oats and baking powder. Stir to combine.
  3. In a separate bowl, add milk, eggs, honey and vanilla. Whisk until everything is evenly blended. Add liquid mixture to oats. Stir until all oats are coated in liquid. It is okay for your mixture to look watery as not all the liquid will be absorbed right away. Stir in blueberries.
  4. Fill each muffin mold to the top with oats mixture, making sure to include the liquid as it will help cook the oats during baking.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes or until tops of oats are a light toasted brown and oats are cooked through. The interior of the oat cups should be soft but not mushy. Loosen oat cups with a spatula to remove from muffin pan. Store uneaten oatmeal cups in fridge or freezer.

  1. When do you add in the blueberries?

  2. Can’t wait to try this!  I decided that I’m not a fan of overnight oats but this looks like a great way to vary my usual oatmeal.  Happy New Year, Kirbie!

    • Happy New Year Sandy! Definitely try this one out. It’s a different texture than overnight oats so you might like this one!

  3. YUMZ. These are so darn cute- and they look pretty darn delicious too. Definitely a top notch on-the-go breakfast!

  4. These baked blueberry oatmeal cups look really yummy Kirby! I’ll be making these as soon as I buy more oatmeal. I need to buy two at a time bc it seems to never last long.  Lol.

    I was also looking for your variations or recipes of the pb choc chip ones and the others you made, but I can’t find anything.  

    It’s always interesting to see what you come up with next. 

    Happy New Year and stay warm! It’s going to be -3 during the day and -20 at night on Saturday!  The coldest it’s ever been! 
    I’m putting down newspaper for my dog to pee on tomorrow night. Lol. 

  5. Do you have the variations or recipes for the pb choc chip, and cinnamon apple ones? These blueberry oatmeal cups look yummy too!

  6. I love plain old oatmeal, but these look so delicious I just have to try them! Yummy!

  7. Do you use the 1 minute, or 5 minute oats?

    • Look for ones labeled old fashioned rolled oats. I buy mine in bulk at my local Sprouts. I believe the 1-minute oats are quick oats, which you don’t want. I’m not sure what the 5-minute oats are.

  8. Would I be able to use frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones?

  9. Oh my goodness. Made these this afternoon and they are so good!! Only had 1/4 cup of honey so 1/4 cup of sugar free pure maple syrup. Thanks for the recipe.
