Banana Walnut Oatmeal Cups

I love eating oatmeal because it’s so versatile. It’s like a blank canvas and you can add just about anything to it for a delicious meal. These oatmeal “cups” are so moist and are a miniature version of your classic bowl of oatmeal. The ripe bananas give a sweet flavor, while the walnuts give a bit of crunchiness. These are perfect to make ahead for a healthy breakfast throughout the week or take on the go for a nutritious snack!

Yield: 14-15 cups

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup mashed banana, about 2 1/2 medium sized ripe bananas
  • 1 egg, pasture raised/and or organic, if possible 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup unsalted whole walnuts, roughly chopped

  5. Add chopped walnuts to mixture and stir again.
  6. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into each muffin liner.
  7. Place in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes- until toothpick comes out clean.
