An oatmeal cup cut in half.

You’ll only need a handful of ingredients for these too and let’s be real.. minimal ingredient recipes are truly the best. I stash these in the freezer if its just me or you can keep them in an air-tight container in the fridge. I love warming them up for a few seconds before having them so the chocolate get’s all melty!

What if I can’t have almonds or coconut?

If your’e not a coconut fan, leave it out! These oatmeal cups are so versatile, so you can truly add in any of your favorite things. I love adding walnuts for a little crunch or some cinnamon and maca for a spicier treat! I’ll go more into subs down below!

What you’ll need to make the almond joy oatmeal cups:

Almond Butter: You can sub any nut or seed butter!

Shredded coconut: If you don’t like or can’t have coconut, feel free to leave it out or sub in something else you like.

Chocolate chunks: This makes the recipe SO delish. I love heating them up so the chocolate gets melty. I always use Hu Kitchen chocolate gems! You can use “danishealthyeats” for a discount!

Ground Flax: You could try subbing eggs, but I haven’t tried it! I love flax because it’s a great source of healthy fats and fiber.

Plant Milk: Any milk will work.

Maple Syrup: Any sticky sweetener will work.

How to make the oatmeal cups:

  1. Mix everything together and divide it amongst the cupcake tin.
  2. Bake and let cool.
  3. Enjoy! That’s it!

How should you store the cups:

Store them in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer. If freezing, heat until warm before enjoying. You can enjoy these straight from the fridge, but I like warming them up as the texture is amazing!
