Ingredients and Substitutions
There are 4 main ingredients from this recipe:
- Old-Fashioned Oats. Make sure you use old-fashioned oats and not quick oats. So, they won’t overcook and will keep the texture.
- Milk. You can use milk of your choice: plant based or dairy. It will keep the oats moist.
- Eggs. Eggs are a great binder for baking. For vegan option, use Flex Eggs (see notes at the bottom).
- Maple Syrup. A great natural sweetener. You also can use honey or agave syrup.
Also, there are optional ingredients:
- Vanilla Extract. Will add more aroma to the oatmeal cups.
- Salt. To balance the sweetness.
- Cinnamon. Will give a perfect touch to any baking goods.

Would frozen blueberries work?
Veronika's Kitchen says
Hi Brigid! Yes, you can use frozen berries in this recipe. I would just defrost them first and remove the excess liquids, not to make the oatmeal cups too mushy.
Those oatmeal cups looks amazing! So healthy and so delicious! Blueberry’s are so satisfying, these muffins are definitely satisfying!
I would build an oatmeal cups tower as tall as it’s possible in my kitchen… that’s how much I love them. It’s time for me to try something new – your recipe looks just perfect!
These baked oatmeal cups are the perfect grab and go breakfast. Plus they have healthy grains and fruit which is great.
