Using a natural sweetener and no flour, these apple cinnamon baked oatmeal cups are a great option for on the go breakfast.

When you are running out the door to school or work it’s nice to have a portable breakfast like these baked oatmeal cups, air fryer hard boiled eggs and sausage balls

I am guilty about not eating breakfast every morning. If I skip it, I find myself searching for any food I can find by mid morning because I’m so hungry. 

We are all trying to be better about eating a healthy breakfast in the morning. It makes it so much easier when there is something that I can easily prep and make ahead of time to eat later. 

These apple cinnamon oatmeal muffins are perfect for on the go breakfast and have no flour or sugar. Make them on Sunday and you will be set for breakfast all week.


Ingredients Needed

These breakfast bites don’t need too many ingredients. Most you might have already in your pantry. 

Egg – This helps to bind the cups together.

Unsweetened Applesauce – This adds nice apple flavor and moisture. 

Truvia Natural Sweetener – Feel free to use your favorite sugar substitute. 

Vegetable Oil – 

Milk – Helps to soften the oats. 

Vanilla Extract – Adds a little sweetness. 

Old Fashioned Oats – Oats are what make these cups. I would stick with old fashioned because quick oats won’t be as moist. 

Baking Powder – Keeps them from becoming to dense. 

Apples – Make sure to peel dice the apples small. You may use your favorite variety.

  • Stir together egg, applesauce, milk, oil and vanilla extract.

  • Then mix in Truvia® Natural Sweetener Spoonable, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking powder and diced apples. I keep the skin on my apples for a little color but you may also remove the skin.

Using Truvia® Natural Sweetener and no flour, these apple cinnamon baked oatmeal cups are a great option for on the go breakfast.

  • Spray a muffin tin with non stick cooking spray and fill the cups with the mixture. You will get about nine oatmeal cups out of this recipe.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven. Make sure to let the oatmeal cups cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes so they don’t fall apart when you remove them.

How to freeze

I like to make a double recipe and freeze the leftovers. 

Bake, let completely cool and then place the muffins on a cookie sheet in the freezer. Once they have frozen, place them in an air tight, freezer safe bag. 

Place in refrigerator to thaw. Reheat in the oven or microwave. 

They are good for up to 3 months.

Are they healthy?

Most of these ingredients are healthy for you to eat. Oatmeal and apples contain a lot of nutritional value. 

These baked oatmeal cups make a delicious and healthy breakfast, lunch or snack.

    1. Hi Linda, I am not a nutrition expert but according to it looks like there are 3 grams of dietary fiber per one oatmeal cup. Thanks for checking out the recipe!

  1. I “recipe taste-tested” way too many cookies over the Holidays so these cups would be perfect for me too – AND I so love that they can be made ahead and stored in the fridge to be enjoyed all week – no excuse not to start the day off on a lower sugar note!
