Something about apples and cinnamon just SCREAMS Fall! Honey crisp apples are in their prime season right now, and I could not resist grabbing a few at the grocery store to whip up these quick Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cups. These to-go cups are a GREAT healthy breakfast to make ahead of time and have on hand all week long. These oatmeal cups maintain a sweet taste and fluffy texture thanks to one of the main "hidden" ingredients - mashed bananas! Each oatmeal cup is 95 calories, and they are SUPER convenient to just grab one (or two... or three!) and go! Top with some nonfat vanilla greek yogurt and a "cinnamon streusel" topping for an extra tasty treat!
You can refrigerate these Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cups, heat them up in the microwave for a warm & cozy "apple pie" inspired breakfast, or even freeze them! Check out the recipe below:
- 2 cups 100% natural whole grain old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup Betterbody Foods Organic Coconut Flour
- 2 medium bananas
- 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
- 1 1/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon butter extract
- 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 teaspoons zero calorie sweetener (I use stevia)
- 1 medium honey crisp apple (cored and diced)
**OPTIONAL: 1 scoop Quest Nutrition Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder - for a little extra protein! *NOT included in the nutrition facts below.)
Vanilla Icing (optional topping)
- 1/4 cup Dannon Light & Fit Nonfat Greek Yogurt
Cinnamon Streusel (optional topping):
- 2 tablespoons Betterbody Foods PBFit
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon zero calorie sweetener
- 1-2 teaspoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin tins and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, mash 2 medium sized bananas until very smooth (I used a hand mixer and pureed them). Mix in old-fashioned oats, Betterbody Foods Organic Coconut Flour, egg whites, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, butter extract, maple extract, and ground cinnamon. Stir in the diced honey crisp apple.
Drop oatmeal into greased muffin tins and bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the oatmeal cups to cool completely.
Spoon 1/4 cup Dannon Light & Fit Nonfat Greek Yogurt into a small plastic ziplock bag. Cut a small hole in one corner of the bag and twist the top closed to create a "homemade icing bag". Drizzle greek yogurt "icing" over the top of cooled oatmeal cups.
Cinnamon Streusel Topping
Mix together PBFit, cinnamon, and zero calorie sweetener. Gradually add 1-2 teaspoons of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and mix with a fork until crumbly topping forms. Sprinkle over finished oatmeal cups. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week. Enjoy!
