Ingredients

3/4 cup gluten-free oats
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tablespoons almond flakes

Preparation

  1. Lightly grease six wells in a muffin tray.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vanilla extract, honey and coconut oil. Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  4. Split the mixture evenly among the muffin wells. Firmly press the oats down against the bottom and sides so that they are well-packed.

  6. Bake the granola cups for 10 to 12 minutes until they become golden in color. Allow to completely cool before removing from the muffin tray. Serve topped with yogurt and fruit.
