Quick and Easy Granola Cups

 

Who else wants a quick and easy breakfast?

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs, I would eat Pop-Tarts for breakfast every day. Actually, I would eat Pop-Tarts any time of the day- breakfast, snack, dessert, whenever!  Now I eat a healthier breakfast like Ezekiel Bread toasted with almond butter or these Quick and Easy Granola Cups with dairy-free Greek yogurt and blueberries. It’s chewy, maple flavored and satisfying.

 

 

Are granola cups good for you?

 

Is granola healthy? Granola is full of fiber and iron, due to the oats. The nuts and seeds add heart-healthy unsaturated fats, protein and other nutrients. However, granola can be very high in calories due to added oil and sugar.  Find out more about granola HERE.

 

 

Now you can have your granola and eat it, too!

 

These Quick and Easy Granola Cups have no oil, use maple syrup and applesauce to sweeten instead of sugar, so you can feel good about enjoying these little bite-sized beauties.
