Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar over sliced strawberries in a bowl. Let rest until juices have been released, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Boil water and almond milk together in a large pot. Add oats and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in strawberries, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, bananas, cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt, and nutmeg and remove from heat. Stir in pecans.

  • Grease 18 muffin cups and fill each to the top with oat mixture, mounding a bit. Freeze 8 hours to overnight. Remove oatmeal from muffin cups and place in freezer bags or a freezer-safe container.

  • Prepare 1 frozen oatmeal cup by placing in a microwave-safe bowl and heating in a microwave oven for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For thinner oatmeal, add milk. You can use any animal- or plant-based milk you like. You can slice the bananas instead of mashing, too.

Just put it in the freezer. Licked the spoon and it was sweet. I did not use all the sugar and if I make again I will reduce even more. Will update when I actually eat it. Read More

My hubby made them and I really liked them. He thought they did not have enough flavor. I loved the subtle pecan flavor and the strawberries were great. The banana was subtle. We wrapped them in wax paper and taped them. Trying to reduce use of zip locks. Read More
