Oil-free, and vegan baked oatmeal cups , your new favorite grab and go healthy breakfast. They are easy-to-make and studded with chocolate chips, too. 


  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) unsweetened canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) water
  • 1/4 cup (75 mL) smooth nut butter (I used peanut butter)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats (certified GF, as needed)
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons dairy-free chocolate chips, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (175C). Line 6 standard size muffin tin cups with paper or foil liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, water, nut butter, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Add the oats, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, salt, and 3 tablespoons chocolate chips to the bowl; stir until completely blended.
  4. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups; dot the tops with the reserved 1 tablespoon chocolate chips.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes until firm and lightly browned at edges. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
