What ingredients do you need to make these Easy Baked Oatmeal Cups?

  • Ripe banana-mashed or unsweetened applesauce. I like to use a ripe banana for the added sweetness it gives the oatmeal cups. The riper the banana-the sweeter the oatmeal cups.
  • Large eggs
  • Low Point Peanut butter– You can use a light peanut butter such as American Dream Nut Butter. I like to use the American Dream Nut Butter “Butter my Cup” or “Just Plain Nutty Peanut.” You can find this nut butter HERE online. Save 10% on your order with promo code: Pounddropper10. If you wanted you could use 1/3 cup peanut butter powder (PB2) mixed with 1 Tbsp water.
  • Zero point brown sugar sweetener- I use Lakanto Golden or Brown Sugar Sweetener. You can find that HERE online. Save 15% when you with promo: POUND15.
  • Unsweetened almond milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Old fashioned oats– you will WANT to use old fashioned rolled oats NOT quick oats.
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Light butter– melted. I like to use “I can’t believe it’s not butter”, Land O’Lakes light butter made with canola oil, or “Smart Balance”

Optional mix-in’s or toppings:

  • Blueberries 
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries, chopped
  • Apples, chopped
  • Sugar Free chocolate chips- I like to use ChocZero milk chocolate chips. You can find theses online HERE. Save 10% on your order with promo code: Pounddropper.
  • Sugar free peanut butter chips- I like to use ChocZero peanut butter chips.
  • Sprinkles 

What sugar sweetener do you recommend?

I recommend the sugar substitute you use is granulated otherwise the texture will be gritty. The sugar substitute that I love and use is Lakanto Monkfuit Sweetener. It’s zero calories and zero PersonalPoints. Please keep in mind-the point value can vary depending on the brand of sugar substitute you choose to use.  

Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener also has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar. If you use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the equivalent to real sugar that is recommended on back of the sugar substitute package.

You can find the Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener HERE. Save 20% on all non sale items with promo code: pound20

I use Classic for a white granulated sugar and Golden for the brown sugar substitute.

These are so so delicious and very filling. I made them with the sugar free chocolate chips on top. Yummy! Perfect for a snack or right along with your meal. Anxious for Michigan’s blueberries to become available to add in to these.

Thank you so much for this recipe. ♥️
