Sometimes there’s no getting around it: you need a chocolate cupcake. You could go out to the bakery and buy a cupcake, but with all the frosting, that could be like 600 calories. You could make a batch of skinny cupcakes, but most recipes make at least 12, and a dozen cupcakes is something no one should ever be left alone with. So what’s a hungry chocolate-lover to do? Make a single-serving healthy chocolate cupcake for one, that’s what!
I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to make these healthy oatmeal cupcakes. I’ve seen all sorts of variations on Pinterest, but it wasn’t until last weekend that I made a batch for myself. I love oats – from traditional bowls of steaming hot breakfast oatmeal and the less traditional overnight oats to oatmeal muffins and granola bars, so it’s no real surprise that I love these baked oatmeal cupcakes, too. And if you love healthy sweet treats that taste like dessert but are nutritious enough for breakfast, then you’ll love these, too!
