Granola Cups with Yogurt and Fruit

(1 serving)


 • Cooking spray, as needed

• 1 ½ cup plain fat free Greek yogurt, divided

• 1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter, melted • ½ cup honey

• 1 egg • 2 teaspoons vanilla • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

• Pinch of salt • 2 cups old-fashioned oats

• ½ cup dried coconut, shredded • ½ cup almonds, sliced

• 1 cup strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries 



1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk 1/3 cup yogurt with the butter, honey, egg, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the oats, coconut, and almonds.

3. Divide the granola mixture into the muffin cups.

4. Use the back of a spoon to push the granola mixture down and up the sides to fit the shape of a cup. Spray again as needed to keep the granola from sticking to the spoon.

5. Bake the cups in the center rack of your oven for 20-30 minutes until they are golden brown (time can vary with different ovens).

6. Remove and cool for 10-15 minutes on a wire rack.
