Spooner Sophie, who is an ambitious young architect had invited her friends over for a BBQ. As she was thinking of dessert she wanted something that would fit different tastes and everyone could enjoy. She thought of making some tasty muesli cups which she could fill with different toppings. Absolutely delicious and you can match it with fruit that is in season.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 250 g Berry Fix muesli

  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil

  • 3 Banana’s

  • 100g Honey

  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon

  • Pinch of salt

METHOD:

Mash the banana in a bowl until smooth. Now add Berry Fix muesli and the remaining ingredients to the bowl and combine well.

Grease a muffin / cupcake tray with a little bit of oil or butter and then divide the mix into the tray – using a spoon to help shape the mix to the side of the tray pockets.

Bake at 170 degrees for around 15-20 minutes.

Once cooked remove from the oven and leave to cool.

Meanwhile, prepare your toppings for the granola cups. You can use whatever you like, from custard to yoghurt and fresh fruit. The options are endless.

Top the granola cups and serve immediately. Alternatively you can keep the cups for a few days in an airtight container in the fridge and then top with your yogurt/ wet toppings as and when needed.
