Ingredients for Cookie Baked Oatmeal
Rolled Oats - For this recipe I used Gluten Free Whole Grain Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. You can also use steel cut oats or even the instant oats for this cookie baked oatmeal recipe.
Vanilla Almond Milk - Califia Farms makes one of the healthiest almond milk's with no chemicals or preservatives. I recommend using the free Yuka app to scan your products in order to get clear information on the health impacts of the products you consume.
Coconut Sugar - I like to use coconut sugar as it contains less sucrose than table sugar. Table sugar is pure sucrose and coconut sugar contains about 75 percent sucrose. The other 25 percent is composed of nutrients, fiber, and other good stuff. Perfect for healthy desserts.
Chocolate Chips - If you want to keep the sugar down use the Lily's Stevia sweetened chocolate chips. They do contain erythritol which does not sit well with some people..just a little fun fact. Feel free to use Nestle's Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips as you only need about 10 chips for this recipe so it will not increase the sugar and calories that much.
How to make Oatmeal Cookie Cups
1: Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees F. Add your mashed banana, rolled oats, egg, almond milk, coconut sugar and baking soda into your blender. I used the Ninja Foodi Smoothie Maker to blend for about 1 minute.
2: Pour your batter into two 6 ounce ramekins.
3: Top with chocolate chips and sea salt.
4: Place your ramekins on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
5: Remove from oven and serve warm...so yummy!!!

Baked oats are definitely a healthy option to enjoy for a quick easy breakfast or even a dessert . Rolled oats are especially healthy as they contain a type of soluble fiber, called beta gluten, which lowers blood glucose and cholesterol levels which can help reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Oats are a filling food due to their high fiber content and can increase that feeling of fullness with meals. This can help to control hunger levels and reduce overeating.
Oats are super rich in fiber content, which helps you remain full and prevents overeating and binge-eating. Proteins keep blood sugar levels stable and prevent insulin spikes that may lead to fat storage. Oats are super low in calories, making them great for aiding in weight loss.
- Try adding a teaspoon of PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter to your batter to make Peanut Butter oatmeal cookie cups.
- For extra protein you can add a scoop of Orgain Chocolate Fudge protein powder.
- Swap your chocolate chips for some fruit like blueberries or sliced bananas or use both chips and fruit to create a banana and chocolate chip oatmeal cup. The ideas are endless!
