Gluten Free Baked Oatmeal Cups Recipe

I received a letter from a reader of Simply Gluten Free magazine recently asking for a recipe for baked oatmeal. I wasn’t really sure what she was looking for but I thought, how cool would it be to make gluten free baked oatmeal cups? The ultimate make-ahead, grab-and-go breakfast.

This recipe is so simple. And the really cool thing is you can customize the recipe to suit your tastes. Not a fan of blueberries? Add any berries you want instead. Prefer apples and cinnamon? Just swap out the blueberries for finely diced apples and add some cinnamon. Don’t like bananas? Use sweet potato puree instead. Allergic to eggs? Sub out for flax or chia gel.

Just be careful when selecting your oats – make sure they say “certified gluten free” right on the packaging. In this recipe, I used Hodgson Mill Quick Rolled Oats, they cook up perfectly and quickly.

You can whip these up in no time and have them all week for a quick and nutritious breakfast.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, baking powder, and salt.

In another mixing bowl, mash the banana well with a fork. Add the egg, almond milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry. Fold in the blueberries. Divide the mixture evenly among the prepared muffin tins. Sprinkle the tops of each with almonds. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 – 10 minutes before removing. Can be stored in the refrigerator in a food storage bag for several days.

Can you use frozen blueberries?

Hi Andrea,
Yes, you can use frozen blueberries. I suggest trying it with less than 1 cup (the amount for fresh) because frozen may exude more liquid. Maybe try 3/4 cup and see how that does. The beauty of this recipe is that it’s so versatile and you can swap all kinds of fruits, nuts, etc. Hope you enjoy!
