💚A vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free no-bake treat with only 6 ingredients!
Ingredients Granola cups: 1 1/2 cups (170 g) granola 1/2 cup (70 g) sunflower seeds, chopped 2 tbsp (40 g) agave syrup (or maple syrup) 2 heaped tbsp (50 g) sunflower seed butter Pinch of salt optional Filling: 1/4 cup (60 g) sunflower seed butter (melted) Topping: 1/2 cup (90 g) dairy-free chocolate chips (or dark chocolate, chopped)
Instructions 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 mould. 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 centre 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.(I’d skip that extra 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!
*Notes* You can use nuts of choice instead of sunflower seeds. You can use any nut butter of choice instead of sunflower seed butter.
