Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Strawberry Baked Oatmeal Cups

When I told Austin I was making Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Strawberry Baked Oatmeal Cups, he asked if I wanted to throw some more ingredients in the title.  Yeah, I guess the title is a mouthful, but what do you leave out?  Each piece is important to the recipe, and I think it all goes well together!!  I adapted the recipe from Happy Healthy Mama, and it's a great combination of breakfast and dessert!

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and 
Strawberry Baked Oatmeal Cups

2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup skim milk
1 egg
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup strawberries, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup peanut butter chips 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Grease muffin tin or use muffin liners.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.  Add the milk, egg, and maple syrup.  Stir well.  Add in the strawberries and peanut butter chips.

Divide the mixture evenly among muffin cups.  Bake 20-25 minutes.  

Great to eat right away, or you can freeze and eat later!
