Course Breakfast, Snack
Servings 12 granola cups

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup almond butter, or nut butter of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons sorghum syrup, or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon almond extract

Equipment

  • 12-cup muffin tin

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 340 °F. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin, and set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix the oats, hemp hearts, shredded coconut, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • In another medium sized mixing bowl, combine almond butter, sorghum syrup, coconut oil, and almond extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix well.
  • Evenly divide ¼ cup of the dough to each section of the muffin tin. Use the back of a teaspoon to gently press the batter against the bottom and sides of each cup. Don’t worry if it is crumbly.
  • Refrigerate for 15 minutes so the dough will bind, then use the back of a teaspoon to gently press the batter against the bottom and sides of each cup again.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Let sit for 30 minutes, and then gently remove them from the muffin tin with a butter knife.
  • Serve with fresh berries, non-fat greek yogurt, or another topping of your choice.
