These delicious, protein-packed, portable cupcakes can change the way you eat breakfast, and can help keep your heart healthy! 

If you want to start your day on a heart-healthy note, you have come to the right place. We are here to introduce you to a new way of eating breakfast which combines yogurt, granola, and some fresh berries. You may think all you need is a bowl and a spoon, but this method takes bite-sized breakfast to a whole new level. Here are the ways you can create a berry breakfast mini cup!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of mixed berry granola
  • Fresh berries such as blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, or the like
  • Mixed berry yogurt
  • Mini muffin liners
  • Mini muffin tin
  • Spoon

Directions

  1. Place the muffin liners inside the muffin tin.
  2. Take a pinch of granola and drop one tablespoon at a time into each muffin liner.
  3. Using the spoon, add some yogurt into each of the cups. Make sure that it is evenly spread so that the bottom is covered, and fill until the cups are about three-quarters full.
  4. Decorate your cups with berries on top of the yogurt as the cherry on top! (Figuratively, or literally, if you want–though they do not count as berries.)
  5. In order for the yogurt to set and fuse the granola and berries onto itself, put the tray into the freezer until the yogurt is nice and firm. This can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours–depending on the temperature of your freezer.
    You can also store the fro-yo granola berry bites in a zip-lock bags for later.
