No-Bake Granola Cups
Here is a great granola recipe that can be eaten just as a snack alone or with yogurt and fruit for a delicious yogurt parfait!
1/4 cup Agave (or honey)
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla 2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup crispy rice cereal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin pie seasoning
handful dried cranberries (to taste)
handful sweetened coconut flakes (to taste) handful of sunflower seeds (to taste) mini chocolate chips (to sprinkle on top)
In a large bowl, stir oats and rice cereal, cinnamon, coconut, sunflower seeds & cranberries together.
In a small pan, melt butter, brown sugar and agave together over medium high heat until it starts to bubble. Reduce the heat and cook 2 minutes. Add vanilla & peanut butter and stir.
Pour over dry ingredients and mix well to moisten all ingredients. Firmly press down granola into lightly greased mini muffin pan. Or you can use full size muffin pan and press down to make in to a cup shape. This is a no bake recipe but I did put them in the oven for just a few minutes – oven temp about 250. There was some granola left over in the bowl so I lightly greased a cookie sheet and spread an even layer of granola on it and baked it for just a few minutes to make a crunchy granola.
This makes for a delicious snack. So many flavors and healthy ingredients to experiment with. It’s also very quick and easy to make.
Happy Granola making to you!
