DIY Freezer Oatmeal Cups
Get the kids in the kitchen to customize their own nutritious and delicious, easy and fun make-ahead breakfast.
Servings: 24 cups
- 3 cups Chex Gluten Free oats
- ¼ cup brown or demerara sugar or to taste
- 3 cups water
- 3 cups milk of choice
- pinch salt
- Assorted chopped fruit nuts, chocolate chips, or other toppings
Combine the oats, sugar, water, milk, and salt in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
Redice heat to medium and cook for 2-3 minutes, or to desired consistency. Set aside to cool slightly.
Spray two 12-cup muffin tins with cooking spray and set out toppings in bowls.
Divide the cooked oatmeal between the muffin cups, and top each with desired toppings.
Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for several hours, or until frozen.
Once frozen, pop out of the muffin tins, loosening with a butter knife or small spatula, if necessary and wrap in sandwich bags or plastic wrap.
Remove desired number of cups (one to three per serving) from the freezer the night before or day you plan to serve them.
Warm in the microwave for 1-2 minutes (longer if still frozen), and stir in a little more milk, if desired.
