Granola cups

  • cup (170g) granola
  • ½ cup (70g) sunflower seeds chopped (see recipe notes)
  • 2 tbsp (40g) agave syrup (or maple syrup)
  • pinch of salt


  • ¼ cup (60g) sunflower seed butter (melted)


  • ½ cup (90g) dairy-free chocolate chips (or dark chocolate, chopped)


  • I recommend measuring the ingredients in grams on a kitchen scale.
  • Combine all ingredients for the granola cups in a mixing bowl and mix well with either a spoon or your hands. The mixture should stick together when you press it between your fingers. If it's not very sticky add a little bit more liquid sweetener.
  • Grease a cupcake pan or use a silicone mold. This recipe yields 6-8 cups, depending on the size of your cupcake pan.
  • With the back of a tablespoon, press the mixture firmly into the cupcake pan and make a dent in the middle of each cup.
  • Put a heaped tsp of sunflower seed butter into the center of each granola cup. Freeze until firm, about 60 minutes.
  • Melt dairy-free chocolate chips in a water bath (simply put the chocolate chips in a small bowl and place it over hot water). You can accelerate the melting process by adding 1-2 tsp of coconut oil.
  • Once the chocolate is melted pour it on top of the sunflower seed butter of each granola cup. It will harden quickly because the sunflower seed butter is cold.
  • Store in the fridge. You can also freeze these breakfast granola cups in zip-lock bags! Enjoy!
