RECIPE OF THE WEEK: Granola Fruit and Yogurt Tart
If you are a fan of yogurt and granola parfait’s like myself, then this is a really fun twist on it. You’ll need mini-tart pans or mini cake pans work well too. This recipe will make about 8 servings with the mini ones or you can just use a pie pan and make one big one to divide up (cooking time will vary).
1½ cup old fashioned oats
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
5 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups plain Greek yogurt
4 cups berries for topping
Pre-heat oven to 325°F.
Mix the oats, nuts, seeds, melted oil, honey, and vanilla together in a bowl. Press about 3 tbsp of the mixture into 8 greased mini tart pans. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven and use the back of the spoon to press down the centers of the crust to create a shell. Allow to cool completely before removing. Carefully remove it from the pans by scraping the sides with a knife or rubber spatula. The crust should be crisp on the sides and hold together, but will be delicate.
Fill each tart with 3 to 4 tablespoons yogurt, and smooth out evenly. Arrange the fruit on top and serve immediately.
