Gaby's Bakery - Vegan & Nut Free Granola Cups (no bake)

After School Treats

Our kids often ask for a cake or biscuit etc, but I’m very conscious of not letting them have too much sugar. Would you believe they still willingly hand their party bags in to me so I can decide which sweets they can have, rationed over as long as I can get away with! So at least if I’m making treats, they can enjoy the indulgences in a healthier way. These are great for after school snacks or their lunchboxes.

Granola Cups (no bake)
Vegan & Nut Free

Or if vegan and nut free doesn’t matter for you, substitute the sunflower seed butter for any butter, use honey instead of agave nectar, add nuts into the granola.

Ingredients:
Cups:
170g unsweetened granola
70g chopped sunflower seeds
50g sunflower seed butter
40g agave nectar
Pinch of sea salt

Filling:
60g sunflower seed butter
Optional ½ tsp coconut oil

Chocolate topping:
90g dark chocolate (dairy free)
Optional ½ tsp coconut oil

Method:
Prepare moulds for the granola cups. You can use anything you like. I have used silicone moulds so they don’t need greasing.

Mix all the ingredients together for the granola cups in a large bowl until it all comes together. Divide the mixture between the moulds, pressing it down and also using your thumb to make an indentation in the centre.

Warm the sunflower seed butter so that it melts, add coconut oil if desired. Put a heaped tsp of this mixture into the centre of the granola cups. Place in the freezer to set for about an hour. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or in a Pyrex bowl over a saucepan of water, again add coconut oil if desired.

Once melted, take the cups out of the freezer and pour chocolate over the top. Place back in the fridge or freezer to set.

Enjoy.

A model’s life is tough on hair. Our industry problem is that some hairdressers only care about today – once you’re home it’s your problem. It’s bad enough in salons with stylists and colourists only concerned with impressing you now.
