On-the-go breakfast oat cups

I love fall, but the cold is always an adjustment! It makes me want to get cuddly on the couch and meal prep is a lot less appealing. 

If you've been following me for a while you know I am a breakfast enthusiast. Of course, the most delicious foods are breakfast foods. But seriously, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! If you're a breakfast skipper or someone who finds yourself hustling every morning and needing to rely on quick grab and go options from various eateries, then this post is for you!

My lovely friend, Becky Fernandez, a registered dietitian and cooking/baking extraordinaire is sharing her favorite on-the-go breakfast. Becky relies on these oat cups to fuel her through a busy morning. I love them as a snack or with coffee on the weekend. The best part is they are totally versatile! They are gluten and dairy free. You can make the basic recipe or mix it up with one of her flavor options. These freeze well so make a few batches for the next week.
