All of you chocoholics can rejoice because these gluten free oatmeal fudge cups are insanely good! There are so many reasons to love them, and the fact that they are fudgy and rich is at the very top of my list. 

I enjoy eating chocolate as a treat from time to time. I try not to go crazy and eat too much of it, but there are days when I have a major sweet tooth. When I do, these oatmeal fudge cups are always there to save the day. Typically, I will make a double batch and freeze them to have on hand whenever I need a fast and simple treat. You can pop them in your mouth even while they are frozen, or can you let them thaw for a few minutes and go to town munching on them. 

Oh, and the best part is that my kids will happily eat these oatmeal cups without a care in the world. They don’t even realize they are gluten free or made with wholesome ingredients. If you have picky eaters in your house, be sure to check out my Delicious Banana Bread Cookies, Apple nachos, or Fruit Kabobs with Cream Cheese Dip.

HOW DO I MAKE GLUTEN FREE OATMEAL FUDGE CUPS?

STEP 1: PREPARE THE OAT BASE

In a large bowl, mix together the oat base ingredients: gluten-free oats. maple syrup, coconut oil and salt. Line a 12 part muffin tin with muffin cups and divide the oats between them pressing the mixture down as you go.

STEP 2: MAKE THE CHOCOLATE LAYER AND ADD TO OATS

Place the chocolate layer ingredients in a small pot and melt over low heat until smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the oats and freeze until set, about 1 hour.

STEP 3: ENJOY AND STORE THE LEFTOVERS!

Store the cups in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month or the refrigerator for up to a week.

CAN I SWAP OUT THE ALMOND BUTTER?

Yes, absolutely! You can swap the almond butter with peanut butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, or anything else that suits what you are looking for. The almond butter provides an incredible flavor, but it will be just as tasty when you exchange it for something else. Just keep in mind, that the flavors will be different when you adjust the recipe. 

ARE OATS GLUTEN FREE?

If you eat gluten free, it’s very important that you use oats that have been certified as gluten free. Oats, in general, are naturally made without gluten. However, when they are prepared in large factories, there is a chance of cross-contamination, and they may have come in contact with gluten. So, the only way to know for sure is by using oats that are certified gluten free; then you won’t have to worry. That’s why I love Bob’s Red Mill products because they specialize in gluten free foods. 

HOW LONG DO OATMEAL FUDGE CUPS LAST?

One of the things I love about these oatmeal fudge cups is that they are great for meal prepping. They will last for a week in the fridge and a month in the freezer. It’s important that you always keep them airtight, and they will stay fresh and ready to eat whenever you want some. 

WHAT CAN I USE IN PLACE OF MAPLE SYRUP?

If you want to replace the maple syrup, you can use agave nectar, honey, or even molasses. But keep in mind that whichever sweetener you use, it’s going to affect the texture, flavor, and nutritional information of the oatmeal cups. Honey is going to give you the closest results.
