These Healthy Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cups are one of my favorite ways to snack throughout the day for a quick energy, satisfying treat when, I’m not reaching for cookies and brownies. 

I think of this healthy oatmeal cup recipe as having pretty much everything a granola bar has in it, except this has milk and egg added to it and it’s baked in a muffin tin like baked oatmeal.

These oatmeal cups of course are wonderful for breakfast too!  Obviously!

Made with rolled oats, fresh strawberries, bananas, chocolate chips, cinnamon, a little brown sugar and some walnuts for some crunch and nutty flavor.

This baked oatmeal is so, so versatile!!! 

You can make it even healthier!  Substitute honey, agave or maple syrup instead of brown sugar or leave it out all together, but I like it sweeter, so I have to have some sweetness. 

I used Silk unsweetened almond milk, which is very low in calories, 30 calories per cup, but you can use any kind of milk, dairy or non-dairy.

The baked oatmeal cups have a creamy, custardy texture after they’re baked.  I like eating them at room temperature, refrigerated and warmed up in the microwave.  It tastes like a really awesome dessert, and it’s healthy!  Gotta sneak it in! 

To get the most out of the flavors, just microwave for 30 – 45 seconds and the chocolate chips melt and OMG!  Those flavors of the strawberry and banana pop!!  You can even top it with some milk or whipped cream too. 

When we were growing up, we always had milk served with our oatmeal.  These days, I don’t have milk with it. How do you eat yours?  Cold oatmeal or hot oatmeal?  Milk or not?

Any way you eat it, you can prepare this healthy oatmeal cup recipe the night before cooking. 

Just bake in the morning. Place bananas on the bottom of the dish so the bananas don’t brown.  Anytime you make it, it’s easy to prepare.

  1. raw oats are so boring to eat in the breakfast! this can boost up my breakfast because banana strawberry combination is so perfect to start your morning!

  2. i usually eat oats with milk in breakfast which is quiet boring sometimes that’s something interesting you did with oatmeal i never have something like that in my breakfast definitely going to try it out 🙂

  3. All the best things in one muffin, so yummy!! I can never make these the night before though because I know we’d go through the whole batch, and there’d be none left for breakfast! 😉

  4. Only 3 tablespoons of butter for 12 muffins? Great excuse to eat more than one, I’d say. These are so perfect for weekday morning or even in lunch boxes for a snack. Another great addition my friend:)

  5. Laurie, thank you for pointing that out! Updated to reflect muffin tins! Thank you so much for your kind words! I appreciate that so much. Have a wonderful Monday and hope you enjoy Laurie!

  6. I can’t wait to try this, but the recipe as shown needs to be corrected. It starts out with ‘Generously spray the inside of a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.’ and later says to put mixture in a prepared muffin pan.

    I’ve made several of your other recipes and they are great!
