My Thoughts on this Recipe

These Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal cups from Sally’s Baking Addiction are full of hearty goodness. They are sweetened with maple syrup instead of sugar, and they are made with clean ingredients. These are perfect if you have several people to feed, and they only take a few minutes to mix together.


The main ingredients are: milk, eggs, applesauce, maple syrup, oats, baking soda, spices and apples. Walnuts are optional. View the full recipe here.


I think these cups took me maybe 7 minutes to mix together, so I love that they are quick, and I love that they make a dozen cups to share. I found they kept in the refrigerator for about three days, and I reheated them when I made them. I will say, these are not muffin consistency. These are dense, more like baked oatmeal that is held together, so if you are wanting a muffin, you probably will not be a fan of these.

The batter is very watery, and it made it tricky to get into the muffin tin and know how much liquid/solid to put in. I tried to just fill it to the top using a little solid and a little liquid, and it worked out.

I left the walnuts out and used dairy milk. I also did not use muffin liners as she advised against them in the post. Next time I would cut the apples smaller; they were a little too bulky.

These are definitely best heated, so eat them fresh out of the oven or reheated in the microwave.

Future Ideas/Variations

In the post, she has several options for changing the recipe including: pumpkin, banana, blueberry, chocolate chip, and peanut butter. It would be fun to try some of these other flavors. I also have to mention, that I probably prefer the Blueberry Baked Oats to these muffin cups. I like the consistency and flavor better, so you might want to consider those.

Final thoughts

These Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Cups are hearty and perfect for taking on-the-go!
