Baked Oatmeal Cups with Raisins and Walnuts

Baked Oatmeal Cups with Raisins and Walnuts

Whether you wake up and head straight for a morning workout or prefer to snooze your alarm a few times, a solid breakfast can help you power through your to-do list before lunch. But you need to choose wisely. Muffins and other sweet pastries might be tempting, but they’ll pick you up and let you down just as quickly. For a smarter choice, try these baked oatmeal cups that are equally (or more) delicious.

For smart eaters, a nourishing bowl of oatmeal is a go-to option because it’s loaded with soluble and insoluble fiber. Why’s that so great? Fiber helps you feel fuller for longer, so you don’t need to reach for a mid-morning snack to tide you over until lunch. The only problem with oatmeal is that on its own, it can be kind of…bland.

Welcome these Baked Oatmeal Cups with Raisin and Walnuts into the “breakfast of champions” arena. Without much effort, these healthy baked oatmeal cups tick off all the boxes for a morning meal done right. They’re tasty. They’re convenient. They’re almost too easy to make.

To whip up this baked oatmeal cups recipe, you barely need any kitchen utensils, no baking know-how, and less than an hour to prep for a full week of breakfasts for yourself —and maybe even your best workout pal, if you want to share. You can eat baked oatmeal cups hot or cold. You can even freeze them for another week!

Each serving has around 150 calories, 4 grams of protein, and 3 grams of fiber, for an attractive balance of macros that you wouldn’t get from just oatmeal alone. Eggs, unsweetened almond milk, and walnuts all come together to amp up the protein and healthy fat content in this recipe. And they’re not heavy on the sugar, either, since they’re sweetened with just a touch of honey, bananas, and raisins. And with just 150 calories, if you feel the desire to have 2 oatmeal cups, go for it!, you will still be way below the calorie and sugar content found in muffins and pastries.

Add in some delicious-smelling baking spices, like cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla and it makes this recipe like a combination of your favorite breakfast indulgences: a hint of banana bread, a touch of cinnamon bun, a whiff of oatmeal cookie—rolled into one healthy treat, without the sugar hangover.

Beyond breakfast, they’re a great midday pick-me-up or an after-school snack instead of cookies. Ready to get baking? Follow the recipe below, and then check out some other ways to spice up your morning oats!
