BREAKFAST GRANOLA CUPS


BREAKFAST GRANOLA CUPS




Easy and healthy granola cups. Ideal for breakfast or dessert, just add your favorite treats like chocolate and enjoy!

Ingredients:

Granola cups:
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup 
  • 1 1/2 cups  granola
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds chopped
  • 2 heaped tbsp sunflower seed butter 

Filling:
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter (melted)

Topping:
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (or dark chocolate, chopped)


Instructions:
  1. Combine all ingredients for the granola cups in a mixing bowl and mix well with either a spoon or your hands. The mixture should stick together when you press it between your fingers. If it's not very sticky add a little bit more liquid sweetener.
  2. Grease a cupcake pan or use a silicone mold. This recipe yields 6-8 cups, depending on the size of your cupcake pan.
  3. With the back of a tablespoon, press the mixture firmly into the cupcake pan and make a dent in the middle of each cup.
  4. Put a heaped tsp of sunflower seed butter into the center of each granola cup. Freeze until firm, about 60 minutes.
  5. Melt dairy-free chocolate chips in a water bath (simply put the chocolate chips in a small bowl and place it over hot water). You can accelerate the melting process by adding 1-2 tsp of coconut oil.
  6. Once the chocolate is melted pour it on top of the sunflower seed butter of each granola cup. It will harden quickly because the sunflower seed butter is cold.
  7. Store in the fridge. You can also freeze these breakfast granola cups in zip-lock bags! Enjoy your breakfast!
