  • 5 cups oats Not quick oats! If you are gluten free be sure your oats say gluten free or there might be trace amounts of gluten there
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups walnuts & pecans chopped fine (I use the food processor to chop them fast! I use soaked/dehydrated "crispy" nuts for best digestion. IF YOU ARE NUT FREE you can use pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, or even shredded coconut.)
  • 1 - 15 oz can pumpkin
  • 2 eggs I think flax eggs will work here if you are egg free
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil or melted butter or coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup This sounds like a lot but remember this makes 2 dozen - I think they are on the mildly sweet side so if you have kids used to sweeter things you could add a bit more - taste the mixture for yourself!
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • alternative to the individual cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg, you could use your favorite pumpkin pie spice bend - say maybe 1-2 TB of pumpkin pie spice


  • The night before you want to make the baked oatmeal cups, put the oats and lemon juice in a medium mixing bowl and cover with water. Cover the bowl with a towel and let it soak overnight 8-10 hours. This soaking process breaks down the phytic acid in the oats making the grain more digestible.
  • After the oats are done soaking, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees, and put the oats in a strainer to drain off any excess water while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  • Put the remainder of the ingredients into the medium mixing bowl, add the drained oats, and combine with a wooden spoon.
  • Scoop the oat batter into a muffin tin (I line mine with silicone muffin cups but I think greasing them with butter would be fine), and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. The recipe makes 24 baked oatmeal cups.
