Chocolate Oatmeal Cups/#National Oatmeal Month

Welcome to The Freshman Cook!

Did you know that this month is National Oatmeal Month? It is, which makes this a fun time to share recipes made with oatmeal! 

I thought it would be fun to bake a treat that I haven’t made, which is how I came up with these Chocolate Oatmeal Cups! I have made oatmeal cookies many times over many years, and I am hoping these Chocolate Oatmeal Cups will become a fun and tasty addition to your baking treats collection!

These Oatmeal Cups can be made in stages, which really helps when you have a busy day ahead, but you want to make these yummy oatmeal treats! When I made these, I baked the oatmeal cups one day, and finished them the next day, when I melted chocolate and added it to the cups! No stress~lots of fun flavor that you and your friends and family will love! 

Chocolate Oatmeal Cups

1 1/4 cup Butter, softened3/4 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar1/2 cup Granulated Sugar1 large Egg1 teaspoon Vanilla1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour1 teaspoon Baking Soda1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon1/2 teaspoon Salt1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg3 cups Quaker Oats, quick or old fashioned, uncookedMilk Chocolate Bar (approx. 6-8 ounces)Topping for cups

Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat margarine and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; mix well. Add oats; mix well.

These oatmeal cups were made in an air fryer, but of course they can be baked in your oven. Using a tablespoon, scoop the dough into a mini muffin pan. Bake in the air fryer at 350 degrees, for 6-7 minutes. Your air fryer might take a few minutes longer or shortener. If you are baking in the oven, bake at 350 degrees, for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven or air fryer. Cool for 1 minute, then remove from pan.

Chop the chocolate bar into small pieces.

Melt the chocolate over medium low heat, add the heavy whipping cream and mix into the chocolate, stirring as you add the whipping cream.

  •                                                                            Add chocolate to each oatmeal cup.

Decorate the top of the Chocolate Oatmeal Cups anyway you like. I decorated for Valentine’s Day, which is festive and fun, and the strawberries add a fresh look and taste great mixed with the chocolate! You can top the Oatmeal Cups with anything you wish!
