This recipe is going to be a hit for children, husbands and special occasions. The flavors and density of this recipe has a really cozy feeling to it.

I think this recipe would be perfect for a Holiday morning breakfast or brunch. Of course, this recipe could be used as a snack as well but here are some ideas for breakfast for these yummy little bites:

The great thing about serving these for a Holiday breakfast or bunch is that you could make them the night before.

Using a mini-muffin tin to create this recipe you can place one or two of the granola cups in a bowl of yogurt, whipped coconut cream or even coconut ice cream. Top it with some chopped fruit and you have a beautiful delicious Holiday parfait! This recipe is also super yummy just on its own as a quick-to-grab meal or snack.

If you have an allergy to gluten please ensure that if you make this recipe you use uncontaminated oats.

This recipe is vegan, gluten free, super filling, satisfying and created with whole, all-natural ingredients.
