healthy homemade granola cups

So granola is one of my go-to snacks when I’m on the run & need to stay full for a period of time. (Especially before teaching yoga). My mom passed me this recipe for overnight granola cups and they are DELISH– lots of good-for-you-ingredients, and you create it the night before so breakfast is as simple as grab n go. 

 

WHAT YOU’ll NEED 

1/2 cup granola (homemade, or I recommend the KIND brand)

1 rounded tablespoon of dried fruit (cranberries, raisins)

1 tablespoon slivered almonds

1 teaspoon chia or flax seeds

2/3 cup almond milk

1/3 cup fresh fruit (blueberries, strawberries, etc. can use frozen fruit too)

1 teaspoon pure maple syrup or other natural sweetener 

optional add-ins: pumpkin or sunflower seeds, cinnamon or vanilla extract

HOW TO MAKE:

In a 12 oz jar, combine first 4 ingredients 

Pour in milk & maple syrup, stir well

Gently fold in fresh fruit 

Cover & refrigerate overnight 

Stir before eating. Add extra milk if desired. 

Can also top with extra granola for a little crunch.

**Keeps in refrigerator for about 3 days**

 

Oh and here’s another yummy thing to do with homemade or KIND granola– throw a handful on Greek yogurt!

Don’t waste the most important meal of the day on crap. If you don’t drink Shakeology for breakfast (which is my usual thang) granola cups are awesome! Even for a mid-afternoon snack. Just say NO to candy & processed JUNK. You will feel worse after you eat it– I know because I have struggled to cut out the junk too, and life is so much better on the clean-eating, occasional cheat meal side 🙂
