Crunchy Granola Cups with Yogurt and Fruit

Crunchy Granola Cups - Triple Chocolate Kitchen

Did you know you can make granola in an air fryer? Weird… but totally yummy!

It might seem strange that I’m sharing this recipe today, given that it is Thanksgiving, but it is a quick and easy breakfast or snack you can make today without spending lots of extra time in the kitchen.

Don’t skip breakfast even though you’ll be eating lots of turkey later today if you are anything like me. If you are super hungry from not eating all day, you’ll be tempted to eat quickly instead of just enjoying the meal with your family and friends.

This recipe is courtesy of the author of 175 Best Air Fryer Recipes by Camilla Saulsbury © 2016 – Available where books are sold. I received a free copy of this cookbook to review, and we have been enjoying the recipes.

Here’s the printable recipe:

  3. Stir in oats and flax seeds, stirring until completely coated.
  4. Divide mixture evenly among the doubled liners, gently pressing down in the center of each to compact and make a cup shape.

  6. When ready to eat, fill each granola cup with yogurt and fruit. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

The ground flax seeds can be replaced by 11⁄2 tbsp (22 mL) chia seeds. An equal amount of unsalted butter, melted, can be used in place of the coconut oil.
