Easy & fun healthy vegan brunch; granola cups with vegan yogurt

I usually make raw granola but this morning it was so bright and sunny that I decided to make healthy and easy granola cups with vegan yogurt with fruit instead of smoothies.

It was relatively easy and it looked so pretty! The perfect dish for a healthy vegan brunch.

It took only 35 minutes to make and about 5 minutes to eat them, haha. The granola is sweetened with maple syrup and ground cinnamon. It has a delicious crunch provided by cashew nuts and flax seeds.  The creaminess and tartness of the yogurt is the perfect combo, add colorful fruit of your choice and Voila, a dish to impress!

Meadow really loves yogurt which is so great because I’m a huge fan of fermented food. I’m all about kombucha, kimchi, and anything that provides probiotics for a healthy gut.  We have not gotten sick all winter (knock on wood) so grateful. I think its because of this wonderful plant-based lifestyle and making fermented food a part of our daily meals.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and thank you for visiting!

    • Oh my gosh! Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I must’ve left out the rest of the instructions. I have updated the recipe. After you preheat the oven to 350, you get the granola cups out of the freezer, press them down again with a spoon. Then you bake them for about 10-12 minutes or so (they smell very fragant) then you get them out of the oven, press them down one more time. Let them completely cool and fill them with yogurt. Thank you so much for commenting and letting me know! Enjoy!
