Just Peachy Freezer Oatmeal Cups
This is a versatile recipe which can be modified to suit your preferences. Frozen oatmeal can be transported from freezer to bowl for a hearty morning breakfast! I prefer using evaporated milk for extra creaminess, but you can use regular milk or a mixture of water and milk.
- Serves: 6 persons
- cooking spray
- 4cups evaporated milk
- ¼teaspoon salt
- 1cup rolled oats
- 1tablespoon maple syrup
- ½teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ⅓cup slivered almonds, roasted
- ½cup chopped peaches
Step 1Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
Step 2Combine evaporated milk and salt in a large pot over medium-high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in oats, reduce heat to a low simmer, and cook, stirring frequently, until oats are tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in maple syrup, cinnamon, almonds, and peaches. Allow oatmeal to thicken for 5 minutes.
Step 3Divide the oatmeal between the prepared muffin cups. Place muffin pan in the freezer until oatmeal is frozen solid, 8 hours to overnight. Pop out each frozen muffin disk and store in a freezer-safe, quart-sized bag.
Step 4To serve place 1 or 2 frozen oatmeal disks in a bowl. Microwave on high power for 1 1/2 to 3 minutes stirring halfway through, or until oatmeal is hot.
