Cran-Apple Oatmeal Cups

Cranberries and apples collide with ginger and cinnamon to create a fall favourite recipe of mine. These baked oatmeal cups make an excellent breakfast-on-the run, a perfect mid-morning snack, and freeze well for future cravings!

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp of unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 2 tbsp of plain greek yogurt


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Mix the oats, nuts and spices in a small bowl

3. In a large bowl, combine wet ingredients.

4. Incorporate dry ingredients, and stir until well combined.

5. Spoon batter into 6 greased muffin pans

6. Bake for 15-20 minutes

7. Remove from oven and place the muffin pan on a wire rack. Allow the baked oatmeal to cool for at least 20 minutes before removing from the pan.

8. Serve with a dollop of yogurt or enjoy it on its own.
