Easter Candy Inspired Oatmeal


We’ll get to our Easter candy in a minute, but first an oatmeal bunny bowl.

Who doesn’t love the Reese’s® Peanut Butter Eggs? I think they’re better than the regular cups.

Chocolate Baked Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cups
  • ·         4 cups Coach’s Oats®
  • ·         1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • ·         1 banana, mashed
  • ·         2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • ·         2 Tbsp. honey
  • ·         1 tsp. vanilla
  • ·         2 eggs
  • ·         Pinch of salt
  • ·         1 cup fat free milk (any milk of your choice)
  • ·         ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • ·         ⅓ cup peanut butter (we use Laura Scudders)
  • ·         1 Tbsp. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large bowl combine eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana, honey and cocoa powder.
Mix in oats, baking powder, salt and milk until well combined. Pour batter into lightly greased muffin tins.
In a separate bowl mix peanut butter and powdered sugar. Drop ½ tsp. scoops in the middle of each cup. Bake 18 to 20 minutes until oatmeal has set.

No bunny does oatmeal like Coach’s Oats!

“Cadbury” Coconut Crème Oatmeal
  • ·         ¼ cup Coach’s Oats®
  • ·         ¾ cup fat free milk (any milk of your choice)
  • ·         2 tsp. cocoa powder
  • ·         Drizzle of honey
  • ·         Coconut butter, melted
  • ·         Fat free caramel topping

Bring milk to boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and add cocoa powder, oats and honey (to your desired sweetness). Cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Top with melted coconut butter and honey.
