Yoghurt and mixed berry oat cups

Breakfast can so easily be an uninspired meal time. The usual toast / cereal / eggs options are usually on high-rotation in most homes. These oat cups will quickly change all that.

The oat cups are packed full of goodness –  pine nuts, oats, coconut. They are a little meal in themselves. To fill them, I’ve offered a yoghurt / mixed berry combo, but you can try all kinds of other options like:

•  Mashed bananas and a dollop of Nutella
•  Stewed apples sprinkled with cinnamon sugar
•  Lemon curd
•  Peanut butter and jam
•  Fresh blueberries and cream
•  Cream cheese and strawberries

Enjoy experimenting and making up your own lovely combos.

Yoghurt and mixed berry oat cups

Mixed berry oat cups

Makes 12
Prep time: 10 mins
Bake time: 10+ mins

1 cup rolled oats
⅓ cup shredded coconut
3 tablespoons pine nuts
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup (or golden syrup, or honey)
3 tablespoons melted butter
Mixed berries
Greek yoghurt

Preheat oven to 200ºC and grease 12 muffin tin holes.

Mix together oats, coconut, pine nuts, brown sugar, maple syrup and butter. Press the mixture into the greased muffin holes to form a thick basket shape.

Bake for 10 -15 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin before gently removing.

Top the baskets with yoghurt and berries. You can sprinkle a little icing sugar on top for some added sweetness… or not.

Notes:
You can make the oat cup bases ahead of time and store in an airtight jar for up to a few days. Doing this makes for a very quick and easy breakfast.

How do you like to start the day?
