  • 3. Place the oats in a large bowl.
  • 4. Stir the blended mixture into the oats.
  • 5. Add the chopped apples and raisins, and stir to incorporate.
  • 6. Spoon the mixture into silicone muffin cups.

Cooking Tips

  • 1. Silicone muffin cups are essential for this recipe. They guarantee that no fat is needed to grease the tins. Paper liners will not separate from the baked mixture, but the oatmeal cups will pop right out of the silicone cups! Once you try silicone, you will love using them for all your baked goods.
