Ingredients and substitutions

Granola: You want to use crunchy granola in this recipe. I like to use store-bought granola, but am sure to buy brands without tons of added sugar (I often keep to coconut sugar-sweetened brands like Purely Elizabeth or paleo granola). However, you can use homemade crunchy granola as well.

Almond butter: This is used to help hold the granola crust together. You can swap in any nut or seed butter!

Maple syrup: This is also used to hold the granola base together. You can also use honey.

Yogurt: Thick yogurts work best here. I opt for coconut yogurt but greek yogurt is great as well.

Toppings: Berries, chocolate chips or cacao nibs, goji berries, freeze dried fruit, hemp seeds all make great toppings.

How to store leftover granola yogurt cups

I like to store the granola tarts in an air-tight container in the fridge and add yogurt when i’m ready to eat them. This will help prevent the granola tarts from becoming soggy and keep them crunchy!

Granola tart

  • 2 cups crunchy granola
  • 2 heaping tbsp almond butter *or other nut or seed butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup


  • Yogurt
  • Toppings of choice


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a muffin tin well or use cupcake liners. I used a silicone muffin tin that makes these SO easy.
  • Add the granola tart ingredients to a food processor and process until a sticky mixture forms (30 seconds or so). It should  hold together.
  • Divide the mixture amongst the cupcake tin, slightly pressing the mixture up the sides and firmly into the bottom.
  • Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until golden around the edges. Let the pan cool a few minutes and the place in the freezer. I like doing this for 20 minutes or so as it makes them extra crunchy.
  • Add yogurt of choice (you can use a flavored yogurt, plain yogurt, mix maple syrup into your yogurt if it's not sweetened, etc) and toppings of choice Enjoy!
