Yogurt & Granola Breakfast Cups

I love making fun breakfast options for my family. Let’s be honest, we eat with our eyes. I created my Yogurt & Granola Breakfast Cups recipe as a fun way to serve up breakfast or a healthy snack to myself and kiddos. You can mix and match different flavors and toppings any way you like. This recipe is gluten free, and Paleo friendly.

As I have mentioned before, breakfast is my favorite meal. Breakfast sets such a good tone for your day, and if you plan it right it can be something pretty special. I love getting creative for breakfast, because you can go savory or sweet. I typically go sweet to be honest. For this recipe I used my Paleo Granola Cup recipe as a little dish to hold my toppings.

To keep this Paleo friendly I used almond butter for the PB & Cacao version and I used dairy free yogurt. For the cacao nibs I use Navitas brand. I use the unsweetened version, because I enjoy the raw cacao flavor, but whatever floats your boat. The yogurt I typically use is Forager Project’s vanilla bean yogurt and GT’s CoCoYo vanilla coconut yogurt. Both of these can be found at your local Whole Foods.

Another yogurt bowl I make with the yogurt cups is Banana & Date. Dates are an excellent source of fiber, and bananas are packed with nutrients as well. I love the element of the pure vanilla extract. Of course, I had to make a PB & J version. For Paleo opt for an almond butter, which is what I used. My kids always go for the peanut butter or sunflower butter for this one. Whatever works for you is best. For the jelly I used my Mixed Berry Chia Jam, which is out of this world. So simple to make, and packed with antioxidants.

My absolute favorite version of the Yogurt & Granola Breakfast Cups is my Key Lime Pie Bowl. I love citrus and anything key lime. For the base I used GT’s CoCoYo vanilla coconut yogurt, and I blended in lime juice, vanilla extract, and unsweetened shredded coconut. I garnished it with lime zest, hemp hearts, additional coconut, and cacao nibs. You see what I mean, the sky is the limit with this recipe. I hope you have fun mixing and matching different toppings and flavor combinations. This is a fun interactive breakfast you can get your family involved in, and it never gets old with the more flavors and toppings you add! Enjoy!
