Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups

My Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe is the perfect make-ahead breakfast recipe for the holidays.

Hi guys!

I’m settling into being at home and life is one big blur these days.  I’ll be sharing the twins nursery with you on Friday, but today I thought I’d share one of the recipes I put together before they were due!  My Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe is perfect for those busy December mornings where life seems to be running faster than we are.  This tasty make-ahead breakfast is filled with all sorts of healthy goodness in the perfect gingerbread package.  Tis the season after all!

Here’s why you’ll love my Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe…

If you haven’t tried baked oatmeal or baked oatmeal cups before you are missing out!  It’s basically a combination of oats and milk that bake into easy to eat muffins or squares.  This version just happens to be vegan but some have eggs in them.

The recipes are generally really easy to throw together.  You can make a batch early in the week and enjoy them as part of a healthy breakfast or snack all week long.   I actually ate these with eggs when I was preggo.

I love this Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe because the flavors are so cozy for December and the holiday season.  I packed in cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger so it even smells like gingerbread when they bake in the oven.

The muffins are great for portion control or even eating on the run, which is wonderful during this very busy season of life!

In fact, as soon as I get my head back above water I’m going to make myself another batch to enjoy.  These are perfect for those of us who don’t feel like they have a lot of time to cook.

I hope you enjoy this Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe as much as I do!

    All of my favourite gingerbread flavours are packed in here and I love that it is combined with oats so it’s great for keeping you full after breakfast. I think you are going to need that Julie so I hope you have some in the freezer! In the meantime many congratulations to you and your family too xx

    Can you substitute almond milk?

      I haven’t tested it, so I can’t promise… but from my experience, that should work! 🙂

    The instructions say to “Mix the milk, eggs, maple syrup…” But no eggs are listed in the ingredients list. I’m guessing eggs are required, so how many? 🙂

      Thank you for catching that! Pregnancy brain – lol! It’s 2 eggs and I fixed it in the recipe. 🙂

    I’ve actually never had gingerbread but the mix of spices in these sounds delicious! I may have to hop back onto the oatmeal muffin train for healthy on the go snacks during the holidays.
