Honey, oatmeal, and peanut butter. Yup, that's all you need. Line a 9x9 sized pan with foil and spray with non-stick. Combine the ingredients and melt the ingredients in a pan over the stove. Then transfer the smooth mixture onto the sprayed pan, cut into slices, and refrigerate. Goodbye, bland store-bought granola bars.

Breakfast Granola Cups


  • 1/4 cup applesauce or mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup agave or honey (vegans: use agave)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • yogurt of choice OR any of my 35+ healthy pudding recipes


Grease a muffin tin or mini muffin tin, and set aside. Whisk together the first three ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together all remaining ingredients. Combine the bowls, stirring until evenly mixed. Portion the batter into the muffin cups, pressing up the sides. It may look a little crumbly, but that will be remedied by the next step. Put the muffin tray in the fridge for at least an hour. Then preheat the oven to 330 F. Take the muffin tin out and press the sides very firmly again. Bake granola cups 12 minutes, take out and press the sides into the muffin tins again with a spoon. To prevent crumbling, let sit 20 minutes before attempting to remove from the tins. These can also be frozen and thawed, if desired.

Granola Cups with Banana CreamVegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free

Makes About 9 granola cups topped with banana cream


Granola Cups

1-1/2 cups gluten free rolled or old fashioned oats

1 ripe banana, peeled and mashed

3 tablespoons coconut oil

3 tablespoons maple syrup, raw honey, or sweetener of choice

1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped

1/4 cup toasted almonds, chopped

Banana Cream

1 cup cashews, covered in water and soaked overnight

1 tablespoon maple syrup, raw honey, or sweetener of choice


Place all granola cup ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray and scoop a dollop of the granola mixture into each compartment. You should have enough mix to cover the bottom in a thin layer, as well as the sides. Wet your fingers to press down to form the cups, making them as thin as possible, but ensuring to cover all sides. Place in oven for 15-20 minutes, or until brown and crisp. Remove from oven and place the muffin tin on a wire rack and allow to cool before taking out the individual cups with a knife.

Place all of the banana cream items in a Vitamix or high speed blender and blend till smooth. Adjust the water accordingly. I prefer a thicker yogurt-like consistency.

Once the cups are cool, remove from the tin, top with banana cream and additional fresh fruit. Keep the additional cups in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

Meal Prep Suggestions

If you plan to use this recipe for meal prep, I recommend keeping the filling and granola cups separate.

You can freeze the unfilled granola cups for up to three months or keep them in the fridge for up to five days. Then just before serving, filling them with your yogurt and fruit. That way, the cups won't become soggy.

How to Make No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Cups:

To make Peanut Butter Granola Cups in a bowl combine granola, chopped peanuts, peanut butter and honey.

Grease cupcake pan and divide the mixture in 12 cups. Press the mixture well to hold together and make a dent in the center of each cup. Freeze for a few minutes, until the cups are firm.

Then melt peanut butter and pour int the center of each granola cup. Now, freeze again until firm. Finally, melt dark chocolate and coconut oil and spoon melted chocolate on top of peanut butter. Chill, until chocolate has set.

Morning Time Breakfast Granola Cups

Yield: About 12 regular sized cups or 24 to 30 Mini Cups

Total Time: 1 hour 15 min


4 Tbsp Butter
1/4 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Molasses
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ginger
1/4 tsp Cloves
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla
2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats (Not Quick Cook)
1/2 Cup Wheat Germ
1/4 Cup Flax Seed
1/4 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/4 Cup Dried Cranberries


To a small sauce pan, add the butter, honey, molasses, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt.

Heat until butter is melted and ingredients are combined. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl mix together the oats, wheat germ, flax seed, almonds and cranberries.

Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir until completely coated.

Place the mixture into the fridge for about 30 minutes to cool.

When ready to bake, grease up a muffin tin and fill each opening about 2/3 full.

Using your fingers press into the center of the hole and then work your way around the edges to form a bowl. If the dough is sticky, wet your fingers with cold water, shake them out, and proceed. Repeat as necessary.

Place the bowls into an oven preheated to 325 degrees. For regular sized muffin cups, cook about 15-17 minutes. For mini muffin cups, cook about 10-12 minutes.

Let cool completely before removing from the tin.

Store in an air tight container. When ready to eat, pull one out and fill with the yogurt of your choice. Top with fresh berries.

  • Store granola in a sealed bag or container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
  • You can also store granola in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to use, let it sit at room temperature for 12 hours. The granola will loose a little of it’s crunch over time, but the flavor stays sharp.
  • By Itself: I love snacking on this granola by the handful. Especially when I’m craving something sweet, or need a little afternoon pick-me-up.
  • With Wallaby Organic Whole Milk Yogurt: Protein-packed and the best cooling, creamy compliment to crunchy granola.
  • Over Pancakes or Waffles: Sprinkle some protein granola + fresh fruit over homemade pancakes or waffles for a texture-loaded breakfast.
  • In Trail Mix: Add a handful of chocolate chips and dried fruit to the granola and you have a better-than-store-bought trail mix to satisfy all your snacking needs.
