Preheat the oven to 325 °F. Spray or grease 8 cups of a regular muffin tin with coconut or avocado oil. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine oats, ground nuts, shredded coconut, flax seeds, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
In a small saucepan, heat the coconut oil and honey on low heat until melted. Stir in the vanilla. Pour over oat mixture and stir until evenly coated. The mixture will be loose.
Divide the mixture between 8 muffin tin cups. Using the back of a small spoon (or your fingers dipped in water to prevent sticking), press the mixture to the bottom and up the sides of the muffin tin.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before removing.
To remove the granola cups, carefully run a knife along the edges of the granola cups to loosen and help lift them out.
Fill with a dollop of your favourite yogurt, and top with fresh fruit, sprinkle with chia or hemp seeds and if you like drizzle with nut butter.
