Peanut Butter Porridge Cups

I came up with a recipe for some porridge cups a few months ago after coming across Chocolate Covered Katie's super cute breakfast granola cups. 

Oliver loves oats for and we normally include it in our breakfast options everyday. Oats are an amazing source of fiber and help you feel fuller for longer. 

Oats are so versatile that I like to use them in various ways so that he doesn't get bored of them. That's when I created my porridge cup recipe. 


I've tweaked it slightly to now include peanut butter, another one of Oliver's favourites. If you do not like peanut butter this recipe works just as well without it. 

Ingredients 

1 medium banana, mashed 
2 tbsp honey
200g porridge oats 
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp of cinnamon 

Method 

In a large bowl mix together the porridge oats and the cinnamon. In a separate bowl mix together the mashed banana, honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract. Add the banana mixture to the porridge oats and give it a good mix until all the porridge oats are coated. 


Either grease a muffin tin or use silicone cases and then press the mixture into each hole pressing up the sides. 


Leave in the fridge for about an hour to firm. Once firmed re press each cup and then bake in the oven at 180 (160 fab) for around 10-12 minutes. Allow them to cool down for 10-15 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool.


These are suitable for the freezer but just be careful as they are quite fragile.
