For the granola cups:

  • 2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond flour or ground almonds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

For the filling:

  • Your choice of vegan yogurt, fruit compote, fresh fruits, or nut butter.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lightly grease a standard muffin tin with some coconut oil or use silicone muffin liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, shredded coconut, almond flour, and a pinch of salt.
  3. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, melt the coconut oil. Add the maple syrup (or agave syrup) and vanilla extract to the melted coconut oil and stir well.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix everything together until well combined. The mixture should be slightly sticky.
  5. Take about 2 tablespoons of the granola mixture and press it into each muffin cup, forming a cup shape with your fingers, making sure to create a well in the center to hold the filling.
  6. Bake the granola cups in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes or until they turn golden brown and firm to the touch.
  7. Remove the muffin tin from the oven and let the granola cups cool in the tin for about 10 minutes. Then, gently remove them from the tin and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. Once the granola cups have cooled, fill them with your favorite vegan yogurt, fruit compote, fresh fruits, or nut butter. Get creative with the fillings!
  9. Serve and enjoy your delicious vegan granola cups!

These granola cups can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days. They make for a perfect on-the-go snack or a healthy breakfast option. Feel free to customize the recipe by adding nuts, seeds, or dried fruits to the granola mixture before baking.
