You can never have too many grab n’ go snacks – especially when chocolate and peanut butter are involved. These no-bake chocolate peanut butter granola cups are a perfect grab n’ go breakfast, snack, or dessert.
Roll the dough into little balls, and push into a lined or lightly-oiled mini-muffin tin. You can use a regular sized tin as well, they just will be bigger.
Coat the top of the cups with the remaining melted chocolate and refrigerate for about an hour. Serve cold.
Vanilla: Just a little vanilla helps to make these chocolate peanut butter granola cups into even more of a dessert treat.
PBJ cups: To make PBJ-inspired no-bake oatmeal cups, when you press the oatmeal mixture into the muffin tin, use your thumb to make an indent in each cup and fill with a teaspoon or so of your favorite jam/jelly (raspberry, grape, strawberry, etc.). Then pour the melted chocolate over that and set.
Seeds: You can grind some seeds like pumpkin/sunflower seeds to mix into the oatmeal mixture for extra nutrients.
Breakfast granola cups: Press the peanut butter oatmeal mixture into a regular muffin tin, building it up the sides, so it’s a thin ‘bowl’/cup,’ then add a thin layer of the chocolate to the top. The ‘cup’ could then be filled with your favorite dairy-free yogurt and fruit’ blueberries, banana, etc. For more of a complete breakfast. Dip your fingers in water when shaping them if they’re very sticky.
Nut-free granola cups: You could try sunflower seed butter.
