This recipe for Peanut Butter Granola Cups is the perfect breakfast lunch or snack idea. Not only are these Delicious, but they are also Healthy! The kids will especially love these and it's so easy to make!
First, line a cookie sheet with Parchment paper, and measure the Oats out onto the parchment paper. Add the brown sugar, and toss with your hands to combine Oats and brown sugar. Smooth the Oats out to a single layer on the Parchment paper, and drizzle the honey over the top. Toss again to combine the honey with the Oats, using a large spoon.
Smooth out the Granola mixture to a single layer, and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, but stirring about every 5 to 10 minutes to make sure the Granola is evenly cooked. Remove from oven, and place cookie sheet on a wire rack to cool.
When the Granola is cool to the touch, transfer to a large bowl. Add the /14 cup of Peanut butter, 1/4 cup of honey, and 1/3 cup of Maple Syrup to make the mixture for the Oat cups. Blend all the ingredients until well mixed.
Grease (I used butter) a 12 count muffin tin, on the bottom and up the sides of each muffin space. Place the Oat mixture in each muffin space, evenly, until the muffin tin is full.
Grease your hands with butter, and using your fingers, press the Oat mixture in the bottom and up the sides of each muffin space, until you've pressed all the Oat cups in the muffin tin. Place the muffin tin in the freezer for 30 minutes. When the 30 minutes is up, remove the muffin tin from the freezer. Place the 1 cup of Peanut Butter in a measuring cup with a pour spout, and melt in the microwave for about 1 minute, stopping every 15 seconds to stir. When the Peanut butter is melted, but not hot, stir well, then pour the melted peanut butter into the muffin cups, and fill about 3/4 of the way full. Place the muffin tin back in the freezer for one hour.
