|Baked Oatmeal Raisin Cups|
Oatmeal raisin cookies are the overlooked, forgotten stepchild of the cookie world. When you think of the best cookies, your mind usually goes to chocolate chip, or gingersnap, or some shiny packaged kinda thing, like Oreos.
But the oatmeal raisin cookie deserves some time in the limelight. It's a freaking delicious combination!
IF you enjoy raisins, that is. But the best part about these Baked Oatmeal Raisin Cups...or one of the best parts...is that you can totally customize them. If you are one-a those who doesn't love raisins, sub chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, dried cranberries or blueberries or even dates.
I'm getting a little ahead of myself, though! I should explain why I decided to make Oatmeal Raisin Cups instead of cookies.
One word—volume. More bang for your buck, more chewy goodness per unit.
Well, AND because I'm always looking for healthy, portable breakfasts. AND because I'm obsessed with oats. It was a natural fit!
I decided to make something totally egg-free and oil-free, because a lot of you, my darling readers, ask for just such things.
Packed with fiber and healthy fats, you might feel satisfied after just one of these guys. However, two makes an awesome on-the-go breakfast. You can also do what I do for a night-time treat: add 1 to a bowl, microwave it for 15 seconds, top with peanut butter and jam and go to town.
Whether or not you adore Oatmeal Raisin anything like I do, I think you'll love these lil' cups. If you give them a whirl, please do tag me on Instagram, so I can see your creations! @lauraleabalanced #llbalanced
