Peachy oat cups are one of my favorite breakfasts to meal prep. They come together in less than 10 minutes with only 20 minutes of cook time. Although, you don’t only have to eat these for breakfast. Peachy oat cups make a great snack or dessert too!
My favorite way to eat them is warm right out of the oven or reheated in the microwave for 1 minute.
I love pairing this with different flavors of a low-carb yogurt I find at my local Kroger store (Smith’s in Utah). The image above shows the peachy oat cups paired with CarbMaster strawberry yogurt.
Pairing the yogurt and the peachy oat cups provides such amazing differences in texture. From the soft peaches, crunchy sweet oats, and tangy and creamy yogurt, your taste buds will be dancing.
Customize Fruit or Yogurt Sides
Using different fruit is another way to customize the fruit cups so you don’t feel like you are eating the same thing every day. Here are ideas of other varieties I’ve tried:
- Peel one fresh apple and peel one fresh pear as a substitute for the peaches. Add an additional tablespoon each of cinnamon and stevia to the apple/pear mixture.
- Substitute peaches for fresh summer strawberries.
- Use a frozen triple berry fruit blend (typically blueberries, blackberries, raspberries) instead of peaches. Add an additional tablespoon each of lemon juice and stevia to the berry mixture.
Tips for Meal Prep
My preference when preparing these for oat meal prep is to divide the recipe into six, 4″ inch ramekins. If you do not have ramekins, you can also prep this in an 8″ x 8″ glass pan and divide the fruit and oats into meal prep containers after cooking.
Using frozen fruit also helps reduce on hand meal prep time; it may increase cooking time by a few minutes, but I would rather prep one less component than worry about increasing cooking time. Buying frozen fruit also helps save money when fresh fruit is not in season and often provides better taste than buying fresh fruit.
