Individual “Banana Bread” Baked Oatmeal Muffin Cups

Personal Healthy Baked Banana Bread Oatmeal

I’m a big oatmeal fan.

I often begin the day with a bowl of it. I also love oatmeal-filled baked goods like oatmeal muffins & breads and oatmeal cookies & cookie bars.

My mom even made me my favorite oatmeal cake for my birthday this year.

A couple of years ago I discovered the joy of baked oatmeal, and have since then, gathered a wonderful collection of baked oatmeal recipes.

The only problem with baked oatmeal is that it makes a rather big batch, that sometimes goes to waste, since I’m the only one who really loves it.

I’ve seen several recipes lately for oatmeal baked in muffin cups, making perfect single-serving portions, and decided to give it a go. With 2 very very ripe bananas on the counter, I thought a “banana bread” baked oatmeal would be fun to try.

Skinny on Baked Oatmeal Muffin Cups

I used the baked oatmeal recipe from my Simply in Season Cookbook as my starting point, swapping out the applesauce for mashed bananas and adding a bit of baking spice.

I loved the way the little personal-size baked oatmeal cups turned out and have enjoyed them for breakfast several times this week.

The rest I plopped in a Freezer-safe bag that I tucked into the freezer. Now, when the mood for baked oatmeal strikes, I can pull one out and heat it in the microwave for a couple of minutes!

Having healthy food ready and waiting in the fridge and freezer makes sticking with the Weight Watchers Plan so much easier and is one of the keys for helping me stay at goal.

    I LOVE these. I have made them about 4 times in the past 2 weeks, for myself and visiting family members. I have cut out the brown sugar completely because I think they are sweet enough with just the banana. I haven’t recalculated the points to see if its lower though. They are so easy and so delicious. Thank you.

      Hi Beth,

      So glad you LOVE these banana bread muffins cups as much as I do. It’s cool that you were able to cut out the brown sugar completely because you find the banana sweet enough! I love how our taste buds adapt so quickly to our lighter and healthier food choices so that foods we used to crave suddenly become “too sweet.” Thanks for your kind comment.

    You should tout this as gluten-free (as long as you use gluten-free oats and baking powder)! I’m gonna try them I’m two weeks, once I’m off this three-week cleanse. Probably good with pumpkin too, huh?

    Just made these following the recipe EXACTLY and these are very good. I really dislike traditional oatmeal for breakfast and this is a very good way of enabling me to get the great benefits from oatmeal.

    I mash up the banana and throw in some blueberries, so easy to make and very healthy and full of taste. I make a double batch and freeze them and pull out when required …beautiful recipe

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! They are delicious! I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar instead of 1/2 and they turned out just right! I can’t wait to try different variations. Yummy!

    I just made these for the second time this week… I love them, and so do my 3 & 7 year old boys! I made them today with coconut milk instead of low fat milk & applesauce instead of oil… I also couldn’t resist adding more fruit, so I added about 1/2 cups of blueberries & 1 peeled apple cut into tiny chunks. I was able to fill 12 muffin cups & they are A-MAZE-ING! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!!
