Gluten Free Granola Cups.

Calling All Gluten Free Lovers!

I saw a recipe for mini granola cups on Facebook – you know, one of those video recipe posts that are always popping up on your newsfeed making  just about anything look super simple to make?   Well, I decided to give it a try for our Easter brunch yesterday and it was delicious!

I modified the recipe a bit because my sister is on a gluten free diet so I substituted the use of regular oats with gluten free ones.  It was surprisingly easy to prepare and quite the hit at the party!

Now you try!

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Take two ripe bananas and mash them in a bowl.

Add 100 grams of honey.

1 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Add 125 grams of Gluten Free Oats. (You can also use regular, steel cut, or any other that you prefer)

OPTIONAL: I added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts

Mix it until you get a soft granola -like texture.

Put the mix in to mini cup cake pans, molding it with your hands to make an indent at the top to give it a cup-like shape.

Put the pans in the oven for about 15 minutes (as soon as you see the edges brown it’s time) and wa-lah, they’re finished!

Now- because they’re in the shape of a (mini) cup it’s up to you what you want to add.  The video on Facebook called for a scoop of yogurt with some fruit on top (delish + perfect for any brunch).  My personal favorite has been a modified version of this with a scoop of vanilla greek yogurt and honey drizzled on top.  I have also tried it with a scoop of nutella- whoops. Let me know what you try in the comments below 🙂

Enjoy!
