Baked Oat Cups w/ Cinnamon Streusel
If you’re a fan of baked oats, you’re going to love these baked oat cups! They are the perfect grab-n-go breakfast or snack and so easy to make! They are flourless and only require about 6 ingredients, all of which I keep on hand in my pantry, and I’m guessing you might too! The ingredients you need are: gluten-free rolled oats, medjool dates, coconut oil, maple syrup, nut milk (I used oat), and cereal. Extra cinnamon powder is optional too!
These baked oat cups are soft & chewy but are topped with a cinnamon streusel that is so crunchy and delicious! I used Catalina Crunch Cinnamon Toast cereal (it’s vegan, low-sugar/diabetic-friendly and grain-free) to make mine, but you can use any kind you’d like.
Once you bake the oat cups, you will take them out after 7 minutes in the oven and THEN add the streusel to bake for another 3-5 minutes. This way, the steusel doesn’t get over-baked.
Other than that, this recipe is super simple! These have been my breakfast on repeat this week (warmed up a bit with some nut milk on the side) so I hope you love them as much as I do! You can keep them on your counter at room temperature for up to a week or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy and let me know if you make them!
