Who doesn’t want an easy and healthy breakfast to grab on the go? These sugar-free apple cinnamon oatmeal bites are healthy, delicious, easy to make and can be stored in the refrigerator for a week ~ if they aren’t devoured the minute they come out of the oven.
Most people admit that they should eat breakfast, but are too rushed or not hungry early, so they skip it and begin a blood sugar roller coaster that can last throughout the day.
Sugar-free Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bites to the rescue!
These simple, moist goodies contain oats for sustained energy, eggs for protein and apple for extra vitamins and fiber, as well as light sweetness from real maple syrup instead of processed white sugar. You can use milk for extra protein, but I prefer unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Enjoy your oatmeal bites cold, or warm topped with butter or nut butter. Delicious and perfect for everyone in the family!
3 C. Old-fashioned rolled oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 C. milk of choice
2 large eggs
1/2 C real/pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large apple of your choice, peeled, cored and chopped
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Coat muffin pan cups with coconut oil.
In a large bowl, combine oats, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Stir well.
In a separate bowl add milk, eggs, syrup and vanilla. Whisk together until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir well. Mix in the chopped apple.
Using a spoon, evenly fill each muffin cup with the mixture. Bake for 25-26 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Enjoy warm or seal and refrigerate for up to a week.
