The breakfast cupcakes are:

These customizable “breakfast” baked oatmeal cupcakes are great on-the-go fuel for those days when you have zero time in the morning to prepare a big meal.
- 5 cups rolled oats (400g)
- 2 1/2 cups over-ripe mashed banana (For all substitutions, see nutrition link below) measured after mashing (600g)
- 1 tsp salt
- 5 NuNaturals stevia packets OR omit and use 5 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave, or honey instead
- optional: 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
- 2 2/3 cups water (640g) (If using the liquid-sweetener option, scale water back by 1/3 cup)
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp coconut or veg oil (45g) (Fat-free option listed in the nutrition link below)
- 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- optional add-ins: cinnamon, shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, ground flax or wheat germ, raisins or other dried fruit, etc.
Preheat oven to 380 F, and line 24-25 cupcake tins. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir very well. In a separate bowl, combine and stir all wet ingredients (including banana). Mix wet into dry, then pour into the cupcake liners and bake 21 minutes. I also like to then broil for 1-2 minutes, but it’s optional. (If you let them cool overnight, they’ll no longer stick to the liners.) These oatmeal cakes can be eaten right away, or they can be frozen and reheated for an instant breakfast on a busy day.

Do you ever skip breakfast?
And what do you usually eat on days when sitting down to breakfast just isn’t an option? When I was a teenager, I hated getting up early, so breakfast was often something portable, eaten in the car as I rushed to school. I never understood how my friends who skipped breakfast could make it through class. The only times I’ve ever really skipped breakfast were weekends when I was 13 or 14… because I’d completely sleep through it!
