Granola Cups with Yogurt & Berries

 

Most people love granola. But most people also don't realize that it's super easy for your granola to actually be very unhealthy. Many granola brands are loaded with sugar or other processed ingredients, so if you're buying your granola at the store, it's super important to LOOK AT THE INGREDIENT LIST. Look for granolas low in sugar or that are sweetened lightly with natural sugars such as maple syrup or honey. 

If you're looking for a good brand, I definitely recommend Paleo Passion Foods. Their granola is grain-free and filled with healthy nuts and seeds. The best part is: it's only sweetened with honey.

 

This recipe uses the Caribbean Coconut Granola, but you can use any flavor you want! You can also try the granola yourself and get 15% off with free shipping if you use the code "kalememaybe" by going to www.paleopassionfoods.com.

These cups are great for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert! Feel free to top them off with whatever you want!

Ingredients (makes 4 cups)

  • Coconut oil spray/non-stick spray
  • 1 cup granola (You'll want the smallest pieces possible, so you might want to smash or grind them up a little)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • About 6 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • Berries of choice (I used raspberries and blueberries)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a muffin tin with coconut oil spray/non-stick spray.

2. In a medium bowl, combine granola, melted coconut oil, and egg. Make sure the granola is evenly coated so it all gets wet from the coconut oil and egg.

3. Spoon the granola mixture into the muffin tin, patting it down. Use a spoon to press down into the center to make a indent for the Greek yogurt. 

4. Bake for about 15 minutes. You may not need to blot the extra coconut oil off the cups when finished. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. You can remove the bowls with a knife, but they should come out easily. The granola cups should be firm and stay together. 

5. Top with Greek yogurt, berries, and chia seeds.
