If you love a good yogurt & granola bowl in the morning, this is a fun recipe to change it up a little and try yogurt with granola on the go with these fun muffin-tin Granola cups. This recipe is so easy & simple & it’s nice to make a batch of them on the weekend for quick breakfast ideas on busy school or work mornings.
These yogurt and granola cups are also such a fun idea for a baby or wedding shower or just a brunch get-together as the presentation is so pretty, while giving guests a healthier option for breakfast or brunch. You could have these all pre-made with the yogurt & fruit. Or make a yogurt topping bar – where the granola cups are premade, but then your guests can fill up the granola cups with their favorite kind of yogurt & toppings. Ideas for toppings including all kinds of fruit, different kinds of chocolate chips, nuts, & more.
I love that you can use any of your favorite yogurts, whether you want a sweeter yogurt or want to go with something healthier like greek yogurt. Then add whatever toppings you love to make this pretty & tasty!
Kids will love adding their own toppings & having their yogurt more portable to use their hands as a fun way to change up their regular yogurt breakfast.
