Here's why you'll love my Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe...

If you haven't tried baked oatmeal or baked oatmeal cups before you are missing out! It's basicallya combination of oats and milk that bake into easy to eat muffins or squares. This version just happens to be vegan but some have eggs in them.

The recipes are generally really easy to throw together. You can make a batch early in the week and enjoy them as part of a healthy breakfast or snack all week long. I actually ate these with eggs when I was preggo.

    Can I use Quick Oatmeal in this recipe? That’s what I have on hand.

      Yes! The texture is better with old-fashioned oats, but you can use that if that's what you have. Enjoy!

    All of my favourite gingerbread flavours are packed in here and I love that it is combined with oats so it's great for keeping you full after breakfast. I think you are going to need that Julie so I hope you have some in the freezer! In the meantime many congratulations to you and your family too xx

    The instructions say to "Mix the milk, eggs, maple syrup..." But no eggs are listed in the ingredients list. I'm guessing eggs are required, so how many? 🙂

      Thank you for catching that! Pregnancy brain - lol! It's 2 eggs and I fixed it in the recipe. 🙂
