Have you ever experienced snack burnout? Like when you’ve got a few go-to snacks that you absolutely love and always keep on hand, but then one day you wake up and suddenly none of them sound appealing anymore? You’ve been there too, right? Luckily, we’ve got these Chocolate Granola Cups to shake up our snack game.
These little bites are truly incredible. The creamy, nutty, mild base paired with the rich, crunchy chocolate layer is a match made in heaven. And with that sprinkle of flaky sea salt on top? I have no words.
They also have collagen peptides in them for an added protein boost! I used Further Food collagen (you can find my podcast interview with the founder here), which gives this snack a little extra staying power. However, if you would like to make the recipe vegan or vegetarian, you can absolutely omit the collagen and they will still be delicious.
I’ve been bringing these on the go for snacks, enjoying a couple for dessert, or just grabbing one out of the fridge as I walk by. I also think they would be an incredible substitute for granola on a yogurt bowl. Chocolate for breakfast? Heck yes.
If you make these Chocolate Granola Cups (do it do it do it!!) be sure to let me know what you think in the comments, or share a picture with me on Instagram!

For me, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas can’t go by fast enough. I actually had to drag myself away from online shopping for Christmas gifts just to write this post. The recipe is really the star of the show here, so I’ll type it up real quick and get back to deciding whether to get my sister fancy peppermint brownie mix or a pair of earrings.
This is probably – no, definitely – the best granola I’ve ever made. An believe me, I have made A LOT of granola. I’ve always loved granola, but the store bought kind often has some questionable ingredients, so I was thrilled when I learned how to make it at home.
Somehow, this is both the healthiest and best-tasting recipe I’ve tried, which makes me so very happy. I’ve been sprinkling this on smoothies, mixing it into yogurt, and snacking straight out of the jar for an energy-boost with healthy fats and minimal sugar.
