This simple take on regular granola is ideal for keeping an eye on how much granola you’re eating as it can be quite energy dense (you don’t have to eat much of it for the calories to add up).
I found that 2 filled granola cups was the perfect serving size, although I may have been greedy and ate 3! 😛
- 1/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened) can also use a mashed banana
- 1/4 cup natural honey
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Mixed seeds/nuts
- Greek yogurt & fruit to fill (I also used Sweet Freedom‘s choc shot which is only 14 kcals per teaspoon)
- Combine the dry ingredients in 1 bowl and the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry bowl and mix through.
- Grease a muffin tin using melted coconut oil or baking spray.
- Portion out around 9-12 cups.
- Press the mixture tightly to the bottom and around the sides (this part can be tricky).
- Leave the tray in the fridge to harden & preheat oven to 170 degrees.
- After an hour, press the sides firmly again before baking for around 10-12 minutes or until golden.
- Allow the granola cups to cool/harden before removing from the tray (20-30 minutes).
- Serve with greek yogurt and fruit.
