Protein Oat Cups

15 Mini Cups66 cals

We’re back with a simple high protein no bake recipe that can also be made in the oven. The best part? You only need 6 ingredients to make these easy Protein Oat Cups and they only take a few minutes to prep! If you’re looking for a quick diet friendly dessert that’ll curb your cravings and fill you up, look no further.

Start these by adding into a mixing bowl 2 1/2 scoops of your choice protein powder, 2 ounces of your choice Greek Yogurt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a ripe banana.

Did you know that you can easily peel a banana by pinching the bottom of it and pulling it apart?

Mix those ingredients together by mashing your banana in with a fork.

Once those ingredients are mixed in, add and mix in 1 cup of rolled oats. Keep mixing into your rolled oats are thoroughly incorporated.

Protein Oat Cup Size

This next part is where you can decide what size protein oat cups you want. Use a protein bar tray, large silicone cups, muffin pan, and so on. I’m going with mini ones today (linked below).

Evenly distribute your mix into your spots making sure to leave a little room at the top for your top chocolate layer. With the ingredients that I use I had enough to make 15 mini protein oat cups. Keep in mind that you can easily double or triple the recipe to make a larger portion using the scaler within the recipe card.

For your top chocolate layer, melt 4 tablespoons of sugar free chocolate chips. I do this in around a minute using the microwave. Spread your melted chocolate over the top using a spoon.

Last, toss them in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.

Baked Protein Oat Cups

If you want ones you can take with you, you can bake them on 350F/176C prior to adding on your chocolate layer. Your time will vary depending on the size of them. With a muffin pan, around 10 minutes works for me.

Both the no bake and baked oat cups are delicious so don’t be afraid to switch it up!

Tips for this one?

  1. Top or add into them with whatever you want! White chocolate chips, peanut butter, and so on.
  2. If you’re going no bake and freezing them, let them thaw out for around 5 minutes before eating them.
  3. Change up your flavors with your protein powder and Greek Yogurt!
