Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. It’s not because I am “breaking the fast” of the night, but more because of the foods that are considered “breakfast foods.” Foods like pancakes, waffles, eggs, FAGE Total Split Cups, oatmeal, bowls of Greek yogurt sprinkled with crumbly granola – I love them all. And, one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning (even more than sleeping in) is making and leisurely enjoying some of my breakfast favorites.

Well, on a Saturday not too long ago, I found myself up before the crack of dawn. I couldn’t force myself back to sleep, so I decided to potter around my kitchen. I was craving some Greek yogurt and some granola, but could not find my large, granola-baking tray. 

At the time I wrote this post, I was surrounded by packed and half-packed boxes and I really did not want to dig around to find my large granola baking tray. However, I did find my muffin tray. I still wanted some granola, but the muffin tray reminded me of the granola cups I had seen scrolling through Pinterest. 

So, I decided that instead of making a batch of crispy, crumbly granola, I would take the ingredients that I would normally use to make granola and smoosh them together in a muffin tin to make my version of granola cups.

ingredients to make granola cups

These granola cups are so easy to make. I made these with the ingredients I use to make granola, ingredients such as:

• Oats
• Chia seeds
• Cashews
• Coconut oil
• Honey
• Salt
• Cardamom
• Cinnamon
• Vanilla, and
• Egg white

Just mix, smoosh (into muffin pans), bake, and enjoy!

This was one morning when I didn’t even need a spoon to enjoy my favorite granola, honey, fruit, and FAGE Greek Yogurt! In fact, I only had a handful of frozen fruit on hand – but, I did have a stack of FAGE Total Split Cups!

So, I topped my granola cups with some of my favorite flavors of FAGE Total Split Cup and a bit of the frozen fruit and enjoyed two of them while I started to pack some more. Rich, and creamy, FAGE Total Split Cup Greek yogurt varieties taste delicious and make these granola cups a luxurious indulgence.

By the way, I love all-natural FAGE Total Greek Yogurt products and use them often in everything from pancakes to raita to curry. Recently, FAGE has begun to expand their line of products to include Sour Cream and a creamy and delicious, lactose-free yogurt option named FAGE BestSelf.

While breakfast is my favorite meal, FAGE fuels my day from sunrise to sunset. Recently, we have been enjoying chicken marinated overnight in a spiced FAGE Total Greek Yogurt sauce and then baked to golden deliciousness. This paired with roti has been a quick and easy dinner.

But, I don’t just cook or bake with FAGE. Very often I love to snack on a FAGE Total Split Cup for an energizing snack and even enjoy it for dessert. FAGE Total Split Cups are easy for on-the-go, a protein-rich breakfast, a snack, or an indulgent dessert.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp cashew pieces
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp egg white
  • FAGE Total Split Cups – any flavor!
  • Optional – fruit to garnish

Instructions

  1. Mix the oats, chia seeds, cashew pieces, salt, cardamom, cinnamon together.
  2. Heat the coconut oil and honey until just melted (not too hot as this will cook the egg white) and add to the dry ingredients. 
  3. Also add in the vanilla.
  4. Break the egg and separate the yolk from the white – set it aside for later if needed. Then, beat the egg white and add 1 tbsp of the egg white to this mixture. (You can use the rest and yolk to make scrambled eggs or as part of an omelette. )
  5. Mix all the ingredients well.
  6. Spray a 6-tin muffin can with cooking oil spray
  7. TIP – cut off small pieces of parchment paper to line the bottom of the muffin cups, this makes it easy to get the granola cups out when they are done baking.
  8. Then divide between 6 medium muffin cups and smoosh them into the bottom.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool.
  11. Spoon a generous amount of FAGE Total Split Cup Greek Yogurt and the fruit topping into the granola cups. Top with fresh or frozen fruit and enjoy!

Although I don't eat that much for breakfast, breakfast foods are my favorite, too. So I tend to eat them for lunch or dinner! :-) This would be a great lunch for me. Thanks!

What a fun idea for a twist on yogurt + granola! Those FAGE split cups are quite tasty, and then add in the homemade granola cups? I'm sold! Plus, there's less to clean up when you can eat the bowl! :-)
