You know how there are some foods that just taste good together?

Like apples and cinnamon.

Or apples and walnuts.

Or even apples and granola.

Oh sure, you can cut up the apples and eat these delicious ingredients mixed up in a bowl.

But if you’re feeling more fancy than that, check out how fun and easy it is to make these “faux cupcakes”.

If you like coconut, you’ll have to give these yummies a try.

The combination of flavors and textures taste really good together.

And to be honest, it’s kind of fun to eat these apple cups because they’re a little bit messy, especially with maple syrup drizzled on top.

You can even pretend you’re eating the frosting off of a cupcake when you’re really eating yogurt.

These apple cups make a wonderful breakfast or snack.
