Baked Granola Cups (Sugar & Flour Free!)

These adorable little granola cups make a deliciously wholesome breakfast treat! These cute cups are really easy to make, just mix up the ingredients in one bowl, press them into silicone muffin tins, and bake. They are naturally vegan, sugar and flour free, and store well for yummy breakfasts all week!

Ingredients

  • The binders in this recipe are the mashed banana, flax seed, and nut butter, and they work great.
  • A little bit of almond extract and vanilla give these a sweet, dessert character. Play around with other flavorings if you want, maybe orange extract or citrus zest?
  • I love to fill these with yogurt and fruit, but you could fill them with anything your heart desires! How about bananas and a drizzle of peanut butter? Or whipped cream and strawberries for a sweeter dessert spin?
  • For a sweeter breakfast treat, you can add a tablespoon or so of your liquid sweetener of choice. I find that the mashed bananas lend plenty of sweetness, especially with the yummy yogurt and fruit topping.

Tips for Success

  • These work best in silicone muffin liners, they pop right out! I love this big red one from Amazon.
  • Don’t worry about spreading or packing the mixture perfectly in the cups, they bind together really well and it’s fine to have a few gaps. You can play around with how thick or thin to make your cups. (In the photo below, I liked the top left one better than the bottom right one, because it got crispier)
  • Let these cool a little bit out of the oven before serving. They need time to firm up and settle before popping them out of their liners. Then you can place them on a cooling rack and enjoy warm or cold.
  • Store these in the fridge in a ziplock or airtight container. If you want to crisp them up before eating, pop them in a toaster oven for a few minutes to return them to their crunchy granola glory.

Ingredients
 

Granola Cups

Topping

  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt, or greek yogurt, per serving
  • 1/2 cup fresh fruit, berries, peaches, oranges, etc.

Useful Equipment

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Mash the banana, peanut butter, flax seeds, and flavor extracts together until smooth using a fork or potato masher in a bowl.
  • Stir in the oats, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
  • Lightly grease or spray silicone muffin liners with oil to prevent sticking, and so that the cups pop right out after baking.
  • Divide the mixture among 10 cups and use a spoon or your fingers to press the mixture into a cup along the sides and bottom. It’s ok if it is a little thin in places, it will still hold together well.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until holding together and golden.
  • Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes, then fill with yogurt and fruit and enjoy!

Notes

  • I eat 2 or 3 cups for breakfast, depending on how filling of a breakfast I want.

    How many are equal to one BLE fat loss breakfast? I’m excited to try them!!

    • Katie Gates

      Hi Melissa, I hope you try them and love them! Unfortunately, BLE has asked me not to provide information about the BLE food plan, or break down recipes for Bright Line Eaters, because of new trademark rules. If you have a question about how to measure meals according to your food plan, you’ll need to ask in an official BLE community. I’m sure someone there can help! Thanks for understanding. 😘

  2. Hi, these look good! Want to make sure I’m reading this correctly. One batch makes 5 servings? And is the nutritional information per muffin or per the batch of 5?
    Thanks!

    • Katie Gates

      Hi Tina! Yeah I know that’s a bit confusing, thanks for clarifying. The recipe makes 10 granola cups, and I usually eat 2 for breakfast (filled with yogurt and fruit). So that’s 5 breakfasts. The nutrition information is for 1 breakfast, or 2 cups. Hope that makes sense!

  3. Hi Katie, the link for the silicon cups sends you to amazon for not a tray but individual cups and you can order mini, standard, or jumbo. Which size did you use for the cups?
    Thank you!

    • Katie Gates

      Sorry for the confusion Nina, there’s links to two different types in this posts, the individual ones and also the big connected red one. I love both, for the individual ones I like the standard ones, I use them all the time! The big red one is less hassle for a big batch recipe like this, but both work great.

    I loved your corn and bean salad! Absolutely wonderful! I opted to use edamame for protein – awesome, thank you

    • Katie Gates

      Yay!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it Wendy! I love putting edamame in it too.
