Easy Breakfast Oatmeal Cups

The month of May brought the Novalises lots of crazy – graduations, weddings, vacation, and what seemed like endless hours on the road. When June came, it felt like a breath of fresh air. I thought, “Finally! Time to be home—to relax, to enjoy time alone, and to meal prep.” I know, I know, it can be an absolute pain, but I am one of those weirdos who LOVES meal prepping. Through years of trial and error, I’ve learned that if I don’t plan ways to make the week easier on myself, I may just end up in the fetal position in a corner of the room. For us, meal planning and prepping is a must for a smooth week. Each week on Sunday evening, we’ll take a few hours to prepare our lunches for the week, plan out dinners, and sometimes even make an easy batch breakfast item. I can’t wait to share more about meal planning and prepping in the future, but for today, here’s a yummy (and super easy) recipe for on-the-go granola cups. J started a new job a few weeks ago, and Summer Camp started for me this week, so easy, grab-n-go breakfasts have been life savers on busy mornings!

They can be modified to fit any flavor preference and are so satisfying to my fellow oat-lovers out there. I dressed mine up a bit with a few different combinations, but think of just about any flavor combination you like and it could work! Wrap them up in foil or place them in a container, and you’ve got your on-the-go breakfasts/snacks for the week!

Enjoy!

 

Easy Breakfast Oatmeal Cups

What you’ll need:

  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup olive oil

 

  1. In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. In another bowl, combine eggs, milk, and oil. Whisk well.
  3. Combine dry and wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Divide baked oatmeal mixture evenly into your muffin tin, and add any desired toppings. (I also used muffin liners to make them easier to take on the go.)

*I used blackberry and flax seed, bananas and dark chocolate chips, and dried cranberries and coconut.

  1. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

And enjoy! I LOVE new ideas for batch breakfast items. I could eat breakfast for every meal of the day if my husband let me. 😉 What are some of your favorites? Any things you do to make your mornings go smoother?
