Power Breakfast Granola Cups

Start the day right! Baked granola cups filled with yogurt and fruit will give your kids energy for hours. To make, spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together 3 tbsp. melted unsalted butter, 1⁄4 cup honey, 13⁄4 cups rolled oats, 1/8 tsp. salt, 1⁄4 tsp. cinnamon, 1⁄4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, and 1⁄4 cup flaxseed meal. Using wet fingers, press the mixture into the muffin tin wells. Bake at 350° until golden, about 15 minutes. Let pan cool for 15 minutes, then use a spatula to remove the cups. Fill each cup with 1 to 2 tbsp. Greek yogurt and top with berries. Makes 8 granola cups.
