Tropical Granola Cups

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 2 ¼ cups Honey Bunches of Oats® with Almonds cereal coarsely crushed
  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • ¼ cup banana chips finely crushed
  • ¼ cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • ¼ cup whole grain oatmeal
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon coconut extract
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 150-gram containers lemon or coconut-flavored yogurt
  • Cut up fruit such as mango, kiwi, banana, pineapples, or other fruit of your choice.


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine Honey Bunches of Oats® cereal through oatmeal. Set aside
  • In a small pot set over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar, honey and cinnamon.
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and add vanilla and coconut extract.
  • Pour over Honey Bunches of Oats Mixture and thoroughly combine. Allow to cool slightly.
  • Into each muffin well, place ¼ cup. Press granola mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the muffin tin.
  • Bake for 14 minutes or until slightly browned.
  • Allow to cool in the pan and then loosen and remove.
  • Fill each cup with 2 tablespoons of yogurt of choice and chopped fruit.
  • *You can store the granola cups, without yogurt in an air tight container for up to 1 week. Speaking from experience, if you fill the cups with yogurt and then store them in the fridge, they will become soggy. Therefore, I recommend only preparing as many cups as you'll be serving at one time.
