Goatmeal Cups – sounds gross, tastes great!
Gluten free, dairy free, soy free, taste-y!
Goatmeals are Oatmeals silly.
- 1/4 cup egg beaters OR egg whites or one large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup applesauce, unsweetened
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 3 packets of stevia (more if you like sweeter) OR 1/2 cup honey or 1/2 cup agave. I use stevia powder
- 2 1/2 cups, Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Old Fashion Oats
- 2 tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill Organic flaxseed meal
- 1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 teaspoons aluminum free baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon real sea salt
- 1 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or whatever milk you want)
- For Apple Cinnamon – Peeled apple chunks, Almond Slices
- For Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip – PB2 Powder, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Chocolate Chips (Enjoy Life!)
- For tropical – frozen pineapple, mango, banana and peach and unsweetened coconut flakes
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and stevia (or other sweetener) together in a bowl.
- Add in oats, flax, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and mix well with wet ingredients.
- Finally pour in milk and combine.
- (I just dumped it all in my stand mixer and mixed away)
- I sprayed a 12 cup cupcake pan and a 9 cup mini cupcake pan
- At this point, I split the batter into three. One set of the batter I chopped up pineapple, mango, banana, peach and unsweetened unsulfered coconut.
- One set of the batter I added a large spoon of chocolate PB2, some mini enjoy life chocolate chips
- Last set of the batter I added some chopped peeled apple and some almond slivers.
- Pour mixture evenly into muffin tin cups.
Bake 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick in center comes out clean. If you’ve added a lot of fruit, they will take longer to bake or come out moister…if not, shorter. I had to take out the Chocolate Chip ones earliest, then the Apple Cinnammon ones, and take out the Tropical Ones (Most fruit) last because they were so moist from the fruit. I think another good combo would be to add some dark cocoa powder and chopped frozen cherries!
My favorite was the tropical. I later made myself some fresh orange cashew butter to top it and it was amazing!
I simply took all natural cashew butter and put it in the food processor with a touch of stevia and a little fresh orange pieces (make sure you remove all the rind!!!!) and a bit of the juice. Blend, and wha-la! Same could be done with pineapple too.
Tip – I make a bunch and then wrap them in foil and put them in separate zip locks labeled by type. When I want to slice and top, I heat about 10 sec, just to warm, and then slice. Then warm the rest of the way and top! Another great topping is cashew butter and preserves!
