Porridge yoghurt cups

These porridge cups are so quick and easy to make.  They’re just 2 ingredients and are perfect for serving fun little snacks.  I served mine with yoghurt and fruit but you could fill with ice cream and use as a healthy alternative to cones or whatever else you can think of!

Harry called them yoghurt cakes and was really excited to eat them.  They make a healthy breakfast or snack and the cups can be kept in the freezer so they’re perfect to scale up the recipe and make in big batches.

This recipe makes 3 cups (Because I was making 2 for Harry and 1 for Megan) but you can easily adapt it to make as many or as few as you want.

I used strawberry yoghurt for these but you could make with natural yoghurt to make them even healthier!



  • 6tbsp porridge oats
  • 4tbsp yoghurt
  • Yoghurt and fruit to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC
  • Mix the yoghurt and oats together in a bowl and leave for 20 minutes.
  • Place a generous spoonful of the mixture into a silicone muffin case (you could put directly into a muffin tray but I’d grease it first if you do.)
  • Mould the mixture around the case to make a bowl shape.
  • Cook in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Allow to cool before removing and adding fillings.

I added a spoonful of yoghurt and decorated with berries on the top.   I then served with a spoon so the kids could eat the yoghurt, before picking up the cup to eat that too!

They were a big hit with the kids and a great way to fill up their little tummies with something healthy while making them think they were having a naughty treat!

What would you fill these cups with?  I think next time I’ll try banana and peanut butter or ice cream!
