Granola Yogurt Cupcake

It's already late at night, the supermarket near my house has closed and I've run out of bread for tomorrow morning's breakfast. Since I've just made some Homemade Granola and have some Yogurt on hand, I decided to bake a batch of Granola Yogurt Cupcake (actually muffins should be more appropriate) for tomorrow's breakfast and to support my long time friend Cheryl who will be hosting the event Little Thumbs Up (May 2015: Yogurt).

Making this is a breeze since I have all the ingredients needed. Within an hour or so, my kitchen smelled of heaven and I've a batch of these delicious cuppies cooling on the wire rack. This will make such a healthy breakfast and snack, and love that even the granola is homemade! (Recipe for the homemade granola an be found here)

I've got fibre from the rolled oats in my granola, calcium from my yogurt, protein from the eggs, carbohydrate from the flour and sugars...what a great way to kick-start a brand new day!!
