Notes
Adapted from www.thekitchn.com – Baked Oatmeal Cups

For egg free oatmeal cups use a flax egg replacer. For the equivalent of 2 eggs combine 2 Tablespoons of ground flaxmeal with 6 Tablespoons of water. Let sit for 5 minutes before proceeding with the recipe as written.

Sweetened dried cranberries can be used in this recipe but it will increase the sugar content to 5 grams per serving.
