Oatmeal Bites

1. They are delicious. 2 They are easy. 3 They are fast 4. They are healthy.

What more could you ask?

Today I got working in the kitchen craving to bake something. I purchased oats and chocolate chips the other day, knowing I wanted to try making oatmeal cups that I have seen on so many cooking blogs. I only had one problem. I didn’t have any cup cake liners, only mini ones. Then a light switch went off in my head. OATMEAL BITES! Everyone loves bite size food. Right?

And the baking begins…

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of any kind of oats
  • 1 table spoon of pancake mix (table spoon of flour and half a tea spoon of baking powder)
  • 1 table spoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup of milk(almond and soy is fine)
  • 1/3 cup of honey (or maple syrup)
  • vanilla extract.
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 and line the mini muffin cups when liners. Spray them with cooking spray so bites will not stick. Take the dry ingredient’s and mix the oats, pancake mix, cinnamon, and salt. Take liquid ingredient’s and blend with dry. Fold chocolate chips into batter. Fill mini cups with a table spoon of batter. Cook for 25 minutes. Ovens vary.

(Don’t be afraid to add different twist such as strawberries, chocolate chips, and pecans<—will be doing that next!)

They make perfect fast breakfast or even healthy snacks. You could even freeze them or refrigerate and nook them in the microwave in the mornings. I wouldn’t save them longer than a week. Hope you enjoy!

HAPPY LABOR DAY!!
