How to make No-Bake Chocolate Granola Cups

For this recipe, I use honey granola. The reason I used granola, not rolled oats, is because this recipe is completely no-bake. Granola is crisp and tastes so much better than rolled oats.

First, you should melt dark chocolate with 2 teaspoons coconut oil, then stir in peanut butter and honey. I used a dark chocolate bar because it’s good antioxidants. Chop chocolate bar into small pieces. The finer you cut it, the faster it will melt. But if it sounds like too much bother for you, you can substitute it with chocolate chips if you prefer.

When using granola for this recipe, it has to be crushed and not have clusters. Stir together granola and chopped peanuts. Then add melted chocolate mixture and stir well, until granola and peanuts are evenly coated with chocolate.  Set aside for 5-10 minutes to cool. If the mixture is still too runny, add a little bit more granola, if it’s too dry add more honey to get the sticky consistency of the mixture. Granola should be wet and hold together when you squeeze it.

Next grease generously cupcake pan, or you can use silicone mold if you have it, it will be easier to lift the cups.  Divide the mixture between the cups. Press it well to hold together and make a dent in the center of each cup. Freeze for 5-10 minutes, until the cups are firm.

When the cups are firm, lift them out from the pan. If you leave them in the freezer too long and can’t lift them, let them sit for a few minutes at room temperature. Use a thin knife to lose them from the pan.

Then fill each cup with peanut butter. Depending on the type of peanut butter you use, you may need to melt it before filling the cups. Top each cup with a slice of banana and enjoy!

  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 3 Tablespoons honey

Filling:

  • 1 cup peanut butter

Instructions

  1. If your granola has large clusters, crush them with a rolling pin. Place 2 ½ cups of granola and ½ cup of chopped peanuts in a large bowl and stir.
  2. Melt chopped dark chocolate with 2 teaspoons coconut oil. Stir in 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and 3 tablespoons honey.
  3. Pour the chocolate mixture into granola and stir well, until evenly coated with chocolate. If the mixture is too runny, set it aside to cool slightly and the chocolate starts setting. If the mixture is still too runny, add a little bit more granola. If it’s too dry add more honey to get the sticky consistency of the mixture. Granola should be wet and hold together when you squeeze it.
  4. Now generously grease 12 count cupcake pan. Divide the mixture between the cups. Press it well to hold together and make a dent in the center of each cup. Freeze for 5-10 minutes, until the cups are firm.
  5. When the cups are firm, lift them out from the pan. If you leave them in the freezer too long and can’t lift them from the pan, let them sit for a few minutes at room temperature. Use a thin knife to lose them from the pan.
  6. Then fill each cup with peanut butter. Depending on the type of peanut butter you use, you may need to melt it before filling the cups.
  7. Top each cup with a slice of banana. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to one week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
