I substituted half the honey for some smooth almond butter to reduce the sugar and add some extra protein. They turned out great with a fantastic flavor and chewy texture. My kids and I loved it! Read More

I was excited about trying these cups & followed the recipe exactly but the resulting product was not what I anticipated. The cups are not crispy at all. You need to have some water on hand when shaping them as the batter really sticks to your fingers. I think the ingredients need to include butter or margarine or oil or something that would allow them to crisp. Eliminating all fats isn't necessarily always a good thing. I'm really sorry I can't recommend this recipe. Read More

I thought they were going to come out crispy but they were chewy, which I didn't care for. Also, the banana flavor was really strong, which I wasn't expecting. If I make these again, I'll probably try applesauce instead of a banana and I would really like to figure out how to make them crispy. Read More

Very difficult to press granola mix into cups. For the value of the ingredients, this was a waste of time recipe. Read More

I didn't make any changes and they are ok. Very delicate and fall apart easily if you try to get them out of the pan too soon. I would add more cinnamon to the base and use a vanilla flavoured Greek yogurt (I used plain and it was a little bland) Read More

Made it as described except I left them to chill overnight before I baked them and they turned out great. They were a huge hit for a birthday brunch and looked super cute as well! These would easily be customizable with adding nuts or other things you enjoy in granola. Read More
