The past two weeks have not been great. Easter with my family – my parents, uncles, brothers, sweet nephews, and closest friends – was wonderful, but the weekdays? Pretty awful. Urgent tasks at work coupled with out of town visitors to escort around, coworkers out (so that other have to cover down)… it’s been chaotic and stressful. Thank goodness I have a partner in crime to commiserate with and wine, lots of wine.

Today’s post was supposed to be a quick weeknight dinner. A one pot meal that is filling and satisfying. But the recipe was flop. Well, not a flop but one that will require some tweaking to get the proportions right before I share it with you. So with a fridge still full of Easter leftovers and the remains of that one pot meal, I had to resort to plan B.

These Baked Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Cups are a recipe that I’ve made a few times before, so I knew that they’d work out (and would use up the banana browning on the counter and the strawberries approaching their end in the fridge). And because things couldn’t be easy, 5 minutes before taking these out of the oven, I received an evening call from work. Oh well. This too shall pass.

Despite the interruption, these single serving oatmeal cups – as usual – came out great. When I came back from taking my phone call, I managed a few photos and then watched my son inhale one of these guys before he was whisked off to bed. Whether these were breakfast on busy mornings or snack in the evening, these were “muffins” my family all enjoyed.

Recipe Notes:

  • I’ve made this using both old-fashioned oats and quick cooking oats. Both work well. I noticed no difference in cooking times or texture.
