    These granola bowls may be the cutest thing I have ever made. Plus they are SO easy to make and are such a perfect breakfast or snack idea. I literally want to host a tea party just to have an excuse to make these for people.

    They are even vegan, gluten free-friendly and have planted based protein powder in them, making them super nutritious and a healthy and delicious breakfast or snack. It’s basically like eating an ice cream cone except 100x better because…granola, duh.

    You can fill these homemade granola bowls with anything you want.

    I personally wanted to use yogurt since it iss a new way to enjoy a parfait of sorts. The bowl gets a little soggy and when you are done eating your yogurt, you are left with a granola treat at the end. Win-win if you ask me.

    J must have thought I was absolutely crazy when I made these. He happened to be home with me over the weekend and I was actually talking to them when they came out of the oven. I was so excited that they came out perfect the first time around. I have never made or even heard of granola bowls before, so nailing a recipe on a first try was 100% something to get excited about.

    For these Homemade Granola Bowls you will need:

    Vanilla Protein Powder (code RACHL for 20% off!)

    Old-fashioned Oatmeal

    Almond flour


    Chia seeds

    Coconut oil

    Almond butter

    Maple syrup

    Is it also possible to make these without protein powder? Or could I replace that with something else?

    • Reply Rachel August 8, 2016 at 12:23 pm

      Yes! Omit or just add more of the flour. xx
