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.

  1. Such a brilliant idea! I can think of so many things I’d love to fill these little cups with. First of all I’d try quark, cinnamon and stewed apple though as it’s something I’m experimenting with right now!

  2. What! 😀 Lizet these are so clever! I absolutely love them! I will use maple syrup (to make them vegan) and I am mentally making a note of fillings as I type! 😛 I think apple compote with coconut yogurt and a sprinkling of cinnamon, almond butter and banana, ooo or a banoffee type dessert instead of breakfast (or for breakfast as they’re healthy right)! Thanks so much for bringing these over to Fiesta Friday this week!
