(2017-01-23 18:16:02)

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it was so easy and beautiful that I decided to try them. The result? Very nice and tasty cups..definitely must make again :D

You will need

1 1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup flaxseeds
1 ripe banana, peeled
3 tbsp apple puree
3 tbsp date syrup
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup cashews pieces
1/4 cup water
2 ripe bananas, peeled
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp date syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


First place the pecans and almonds into a small baking dish and bake them about 5 minutes (200 degrees). Meanwhile put banana, apple puree and date syrup in a blender and mix until smooth. Remove the nuts, put them to the blender, add flaxseeds and blend until almost flour. Mix with the banana mixture, oats and cinnamon. Prepare the silicone muffin tin and put about 1 tablespoon of granola mixture into each compartment. Wet your finger and press down to form the cups, making them as thin as possible but ensuring to cover all sides. Place them in the preheated oven (170 degrees) for about 18 minutes. Remove from the oven and place the tin on a wire rack. Allow to cool.
Place the cashew pieces, banana, chia seeds, date syrup, cinnamon and water to a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
Once the cups are cool, remove them from the tin, fill with banana cream and decorate with fresh fruit.
