For the shells, you simply make a batch of granola, and then instead of spreading it out on a baking sheet, you press it into a muffin pan to bake these cute little bowls.

Once the bowls cool, fill them with your favorite plain or flavored yogurt, coconut milk, or a thick smoothie. Add honey, maple syrup or agave nectar to sweeten up plain yogurt.

Top the oatmeal cups with fresh blueberries and raspberries or customize them according to your preferences. Other great options are kiwi, strawberries, banana, blackberries, cherries, mango, nuts, seeds, etc.

The shells are very delicate, so be careful when you remove them from the pan. You can also bake them in loose-bottomed mini tart pans.

Store the shells in an airtight container for up to a few days. When you are ready to eat them, fill with the yogurt of your choice, top with fresh berries, drizzle with honey and enjoy.

Instructions
  1. Mix the oats, almonds, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.

  8. Bake the shells for 15 minutes or until they are lightly golden.
  9. Take them out from the oven and use a small spoon to gently press the center.
  10. Let the cups cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling (use the back of a spoon to gently release the granola cups).

  1. This looks amazing! What temperature do you set the oven at? Thank you.

  2. Do they freeze well?

  3. These tarts came out really well and were delicious! The only things I did differently were that I used almond flour instead of the finely chopped almonds, and I put extra coconut oil on my fingers when pushing the cups into the muffin tin because it kept sticking to my hands (even after freezing!). The Greek yogurt + fruit filling was lovely. I like that these tarts have a lot of protein, aren’t too sweet, and are filling – I ate them as a breakfast treat. Will definitely make these again and try different fruits and toppings. Thank you for this great recipe!

  4. Do you think other nut butters will
    Work just fine?
