    Ingredients for Peanut  Butter Chocolate Baked Oatmeal Cups

    • Oats: Old-fashioned oats make these chewy, but you can use quick oats as well. One reader blended her oats into flour and said they came out great that way too.
    • Peanut butter: I prefer natural peanut butter, which doesn’t have added sugar or oils. But you can use regular peanut butter too.
    • Maple syrup: Go for real maple syrup here. You can also substitute with honey.
    • Bananas: These should be ripe and mashable. You’ll need either three small bananas or two medium bananas.
    • Eggs. You can also use two “flax eggs” (each flax egg = 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water).
    • Milk: Dairy or non-dairy.
    • Chocolate chips: This calls for 1/2 cup, but feel free to use less (or more!).
    • Baking powder
    • Vanilla
    • Cinnamon

    FAQs about Baked Oatmeal Cups

    What’s the best way to store these oatmeal cups?

    Keep them in an airtight container or zip-top bag. You can keep them on the counter for 1-2 days, then transfer to the fridge. They are very moist and will spoil if left at room temperature for more than a couple days.

    How long do baked oatmeal cups last?

    Kept in the refrigerator, they’ll last about a week.

    Do these baked oatmeal cups freeze well?

    Yes. Put them in a zip-top freezer bag and use them within three months.

    Two small bowls hold oats. The green dish has old fashioned oats in it and is labeled as such. The pink bowl holds quick oats.

    Both old-fashioned and quick oats work for oatmeal cups, and both are rich in fiber and whole grains.

    Can I use quick oats for this recipe?

    Yes, you can, and they work great!

    Can I use steel cut oats instead?

    No, they won’t work for this recipe. Use either old-fashioned oats or quick oats.

    Can I make these without eggs?

    Yes. You can substitute two flax eggs instead. To do this, combine two tablespoons of ground flaxseed with six tablespoons of water. Stir well and set aside to thicken, about five minutes, before adding to batter.

    A bag of Bob's Red Mill Flaxseed Meal sits behind a small white bowl of flaxseed and a small white bowl of water.

    For each flax “egg”, combine 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons water.

    How can I make these vegan?

    Swap the eggs for flax eggs (see question above for instructions), the dairy milk for non-dairy, and use dairy-free chocolate chips.

    Are these gluten-free?

    These baked oatmeal cups are gluten-free as long as you buy oats labeled “gluten free”. Oats do not naturally contain gluten but may have cross-contact with gluten if they’re made in a facility or on equipment that also makes gluten-containing products. If you need to avoid gluten, look for oats labeled “gluten-free”.

    Reusable silicone liners make it easy to pop out the oatmeal cups.

    Can I use regular peanut butter (not natural)?


    Can I use a different nut or seed butter?

    Yes, You can use any kind of nut butter, like cashew or almond. You can also use SunButter, which is a butter made from sunflower seeds, or soy nut butter if peanut allergies are a concern (obviously, always read labels to be sure products are peanut-free). Or you can make a nut- and seed-free version: Banana Oatmeal Cups

    Can I use non-dairy milk instead?

    Yes! I’d opt for unsweetened or plain non-dairy milks to avoid conflicting flavors or too much sweetness.

    Can I make these with less sugar?

    Sure. Simply reduce the amount of chocolate chips and maple syrup.

    Help! My oatmeal cups stuck to the liners.

    These oatmeal cups will stick to the liners when they’re still warm. They’ll come off much easier when cooled. Or pick up a stack of reusable silicone muffin liners. The baked oat cups will pop right out, no problem.
