Sweet Granola Cups

Posted on

These sweet granola cookie cups filled with yogurt and fruit are a perfect breakfast or brunch treat.  Fill these cups with anything you like the rest of the day— ice cream? fresh fruit?  Granola tastes great with so many things!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups of Just Bunches cereal (just the granola part of Honey Bunches of Oats!)
  • 1 tube of refrigerated cookie dough
  • Fillings for cups (whatever you want!!)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Break cookie dough into pieces in a large bowl.
  • Add cereal, mixing with hands, until cereal stops combining well (I wanted as much granola in there as possible, but eventually it is too crumbly to shape with your hands.)
  • Divide dough among 16 regular muffin tins.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-16 minutes (edges should be brown)
  • Remove from oven and press centers into a cup using a tart shaper or the end of a wooden spoon.
  • Allow cups to cool and then using a small knife, loosen the edges and remove from muffin tin.
  • Cool completely and add toppings as desired! YUM!

 

My thoughts: EASY recipe!  I am a little addicted to cookie cups and the idea adding things TO the cookie dough – like Fruit Loops or Pretzels– just makes me smile.  So here’s granola!  I love the idea of this easy but elegant breakfast- make the cups ahead and all you have to do is fill them in the morning– or let people create their own masterpiece!  Fun!  Hope you enjoy these!!
