With only 3 ingredients you can make these cute, easy breakfast granola cups.
These granola cups are crunchy and firm. They can be stored outside the refrigerator for almost a week without losing their shape. But I promise they will not last that long 🙂. It's an easy, fun and healthy way to serve breakfast to your kids, or for after school snack. When my boys first saw the empty granola shells, they started making a mental list of the ingredients they wanted to use to fill them with, and of course, chocolate was the first one 🙂 .
As I said before, only 3 ingredients. Oats, honey and a splash of oil. What if you don´t have honey? well, you can use maple syrup without a problem.
Divided the oatmeal into each muffin pan. If you're like me, and like to measure everything up, I added 2 and a half spoons into each mold. Press the mixture with a teaspoon or greased fingers, until it is compact.
Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Wait another 5 minutes before removing them from the mold.
Let them cool completely on a cooling rack. Fillings? That's the fun part!

In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well. Keep in mind that the oats really need to be coated with honey.
Grease a muffin pan and distribute the oatmeal mixture, trying to have the same amount in each pan. With the help of a teaspoon or greased hands, form a hole or bowl in each mold. Pressing so that the mixture is compact and won´t come apart when cool.
Bake at 148°C/300°F for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Leave for 5 minutes in the mold before removing; let it cool completely on a metal rack.
Keep granola cups in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
