Granola Cups

Granola Cups

Jump to Recipe

About a year ago, I created a recipe for frozen yogurt cups and they became one of the most popular recipes I’ve ever created! They’ve been viewed over 3.5 million times on Pinterest and saved over 100K times! While it seems like so many people loved this recipe, I did receive a few comments from people who told me that they really enjoyed the flavor, but they don’t do well with frozen treats because they have sensitive teeth. I wanted to create a solution to this problem, so I came up with these granola cups which have the same flavors, but are a warm and crunchy version of my frozen yogurt cups. And I have to say, these might even be my new favorite!

By the way, here is the original frozen yogurt cup recipe that I was referencing above. If frozen treats are more your jam, feel free to check out that recipe here.

How to make them

  • To a large bowl, combine the oats, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Mix them well (it helps if you use your hands).
  • Grab a muffin pan and lightly grease six muffin holes with coconut oil. This is an important step as this will help you get the granola cups out much easier.
  • Split the granola filling evenly between the six muffin holes.
  • Next, use your hands or a spoon to shape the granola into little cups, forming a hollow middle.
  • Bake the granola cups in the oven for 20 minutes at 350F/ 175C.
  • Give the cups at least 30 minutes to cool off before removing them from the muffin pan. Otherwise they might fall apart.
  • When they are ready to be removed from the muffin pan, gently slide a butter knife along the edges of the cups, to loosen them.
  • Take out the granola cups, fill them with yogurt and add sliced fruit on top.
