  • Author: Joanie Simon
  • Total Time: 2 hours 15 mins
  • Yield: 12 cups 1x


Granola in the form of crunchy cups filled with fresh yogurt, fruit and mint


  • 1/2 cup of raw or brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or plain salt
  • 1/2 cup of canola oil
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of almond flavor
  • 2 cups of regular oats
  • 1.5 cups wheat flakes (Wheaties)
  • 1/2 cup of wheat germ (can sub 1/2 cup of nuts or sunflower seeds)
  • ½ cup of coconut
  • 2 Tbs chia seeds


  1. Combine sugar, water, oil, salt and almond extract into a bowl and mix until the sugar is somewhat dissolved.
  2. Add in oats, wheat germ, wheat flakes, coconut, and chia seeds and mix with the liquid until fully covered.
  3. Separate the wet granola into 12 standard muffin cups, pressing the mixture up to the sides to make a well in each cup.
  4. Bake at 200F for 1.5 to 2 hours.
  5. Remove the cups carefully from the tin once they’ve cooled. They are rather delicate.
  6. Load up each one with your favorite yogurt and fruit toppings. Serve immediately as the yogurt will cause the granola cup to soften.
