TART CHERRY + CHOCOLATE BAKED OATMEAL CUPS RECIPE
3 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup monk fruit* (or preferred sweetener)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoon chia seeds
1 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup frozen tart Montmorency cherries, sliced in half
1/3 cup chocolate chips*
Preheat over to 350º F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners and lightly spray each liner so the muffins don’t stick.
In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, monk fruit, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chia seeds. Gently toss.
Add in almond milk and mix until well combined. Rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the oats and chia seeds to absorb the milk. The batter will be thick and hearty.
Toss in the tart cherries and chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
Divide batter evenly amongst muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes or until the oatmeal cups are fragrant, set through and lightly browned.
Cool completely and enjoy!
Chia seed substitutions: 2 Tablespoons of ground flax seeds or 2 eggs or 1/3 cup egg whites (Note: you may reduce the milk by 1/4 cup if using eggs or egg whites).
Monk fruit substitutions: Sub any granulated sugar you prefer or sub in 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey.
Storage: Store baked oatmeal cups in a sealed, air-tight container in the fridge (up to 7 days) or freezer (up to 3 months).
Oatmeal tips: You can use rolled or quick oats for this recipe. I do not recommend using steel-cut oats because they will not soften.
