Is it possible to crave oatmeal and granola at the same time? I mean, come on. They are practically the same thing right? Or not. I guess it’s like having a grilled chicken salad with a hard boiled egg chopped up. Chicken. Egg. Same thing? I think I’m getting a little lost in my comparisson.
Any who, I was debtating whether to have granola or oatmeal for breakfast this morning and I decided, why not both? I made a cinnamon crunch “muffin-top” to satisfy both cravings. It’s kind of like cinnamon toast crunch cereal in a oatmeal version. Kind of. Enjoy!
Ingredients (Makes Two)
For Muffin Top:
1/2 Cup of GF Rolled Oats (Not Instant)*
1/4 Cup of Your Favorite Granola (I used Nature’s Path French Vanilla Almond Flax or use a GF one)
1/4 Cup of Almond Milk*
2 Tbsps of Vanilla Yogurt*
1/4 tsp of Baking Powder
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
2 tsps of Cinnamon-Sugar
1 Packet of Stevia*
1 Large Egg’s Egg White or 2 Tbsp Egg Beaters
1 Large bowl and 2 small bowls
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
For Toppings (Optional)**
Drizzle of Honey
Sprinkle of Cinnamon-Sugar
Mix everything well into the large bowl, except for two tablespoons of granola. Spray the two smaller bowls with non-stick cooking spray and divide the mixture between them. Sprinkle remaining granola on top and pat down to ensure the granola doesn’t fall off when you turn them upside down.
Microwave “muffin top” for about 2 minutes. Turn upside down onto another plate and let cool. Repeat to second “muffin top.”

- *Feel free to make your own substitutions for these ingredients. Use gluten-free oats, to make it allergen friendly. It even works well with instant oatmeal. I’ve tried using Nature’s Path Hemp Plus to boost nutrition and it works well!
- *You can opt to use plain yogurt if you’d like to reduce sugar (about 1 g). Or you can use Greek yogurt, which I have not tried.
- *If switching the sugar make it 1 tsp of sugar of your choice.
