Peanut Butter & Chocolate Granola Cups Recipe

I've always wanted to make my own granola bars at home since they're pretty pricey at the stores. I really don't want to have to pay anywhere from $4-5 for 6 bars per box, when I can make them in bulk here at home for less. I started experimenting this morning with the ingredients I already had in my pantry. To my surprise, they came out so much better than I expected since I wasn't even sure if I was doing it right. I tried my best not to go online for assistance by looking up recipes. So instead I channeled my inner chef and worked some magic!
My husband is always leaving to work really early in the morning which gives him little to no time to grab any breakfast. I figured these would be easy and convenient for him to take on the drive to there. So if you're someone who is always in a rush in the mornings, these are the best grab-n-go breakfast bites that take very little effort to make the night before!


INGREDIENTS:

1. 1 1/2 cups Quick Cooking Oats 

2. 1/4 cup of 100% Pure Honey 

3. 2 tbsp Crunchy Peanut Butter 

4. 1 1/2 tbsp Chia Seeds

5. Chocolate (I used chocolate shells usually used on strawberries. But you can feel free to use whatever chocolate you prefer.) 

6. Greek Yogurt 

7. Raspberries

8. Strawberries 


METHOD  : 

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

2. In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients together evenly. (minus the chocolate, unless you want to sprinkle chocolate chips in there then thats fine.)

3. Grease your cupcake trays and generously pack the granola into them. Firmly press the center to create a "cup" like mold into each granola cluster. 

4. Place them into your oven and let them bake for about 15-18 minutes or until they're golden brown.

5. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely before removing them from the trays. (to avoid having them break in the process) 

6. Once you've removed the granola cups, you may add your choice of yogurt into the center and top it with your choice of fruit! (I used plain greek yogurt) 

7. Enjoy!
