Culinary Tips for Blueberry Oatmeal Cups

When you mix all of the ingredients together, some liquid will pool at the bottom of the bowl. Try to evenly distribute it when portioning. You might scoop the oats and then pour any remaining liquid on top of the cups.

Use ripe bananas for sweetness and texture. If your bananas are still greenish yellow and you really want to make this recipe, try roasting them!

Gently fold the blueberries into the oat mix – you don’t want to squoosh them!

The darker the muffin pan, the quicker the baked oatmeal cups will cook.

Serve warm or cold.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Oats: old fashioned, rolled, or quick will all work. We don’t recommend using steel cut oats in this recipe.
  • Milk or Milk Alternative: use any milk or milk alternative of your choice. We have used cow’s milk, cashew milk, soy milk, and almond milk, and all yielded great results. We recommend plain varieties to reduce added sugars.
  • Banana: substitute equal parts unsweetened apple sauce, mashed sweet potato, or pumpkin puree.
  • Honey: substitute agave, maple syrup, cane sugar, or brown sugar.
  • Cinnamon: substitute pumpkin pie or apple pie spice.
  • Vanilla Extract: substitute almond extract, but use half the amount.
  • Blueberries: use fresh, frozen, or dried.

Blueberry Oatmeal Cups Variations

Add toasted pecans or almonds to the mix or sprinkle raw nuts on top before baking.

Add a dash of nutmeg or cardamom for more spice.

Are Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups Healthy?

Yes! These homemade oatmeal cups are a great way to start your morning or are a healthy snack. This recipe features bananas, oats, and blueberries.

Bananas

Bananas contain prebiotic fiber, vitamins, and minerals – important for digestion, steady energy, and metabolism. Greenish bananas are firm and higher in prebiotic fiber. Brownish bananas are soft and higher in natural sugar, making them a bit sweeter.

Oats

Oats are a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. Fiber is important for digestion, satiety, stable blood sugar, good cholesterol, and healthy gut bacteria. Carbohydrates are important for energy and focus. 

Blueberries

Blueberries are rich in nutrients and phytochemicals which may promote cardiovascular health, decrease cancer risk, and improve cognitive function. (1, 2, 3) Including them as part of a balanced diet is a good step to take towards health.

How to Store Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Cups

These blueberry baked oatmeal cups will store in an airtight bag or container for 7 days in the refrigerator.

We love wrapping them individually in plastic wrap, dropping them in a freezer bag, and storing them in the freezer (for up to three months) for busy mornings. Thaw overnight or defrost in the microwave.
