Granola Crust Greek Yogurt Fruit Tart

Hello guys, how’s it going? Fine, I hope. I myself I’m keeping it short and (naturally) sweet today because, as you may have guessed if you read often, it’s not as if finals season left me with lots of time to blog.

*SIGHS*

 

Granola Crust Greek Yogurt Fruit Tart: so healthy you could have it for breakfast!


 

I had actually started to write this post quite a long time ago. I mean, the sooner you’d read this, the sooner you could have this beauty ready and stuff your mouths full with it.

BUT I suddenly remembered that I have yet to find a graduation dress and proceed to go to the Topshop website… and hey, you know how it goes when it comes to anything Topshop – I got so carried away and forgot about the tart.

And that happened like 5 times since I first typed the tittle, don’t judge please.

 

Granola Crust Greek Yogurt Fruit Tart: so healthy you could have it for breakfast!

 

So much pretty stuff guys. If I wasn’t a broke student I’d buy it all I tell you. I love Topshop so much it’s not even funny.

But let’s get back to the tart guys, because if I went on with this dress topic I could talk for days and we’d all forget about the tart again. Which is not fair, since this one is a pretty delish one and you don’t want to miss it AND who wants to forget about dessert anyway? Not this girl, that’s for sure.

 

Granola Crust Greek Yogurt Fruit Tart: so healthy you could have it for breakfast!

 

Though seriously, I need a dress. I want a yellow one with a daisy pattern because I do think that those are gorgeous but:

1) I’m so pale I could totally go to the The Walking Dead set and play a walker without make-up or anything because I’m that demacrated au naturel. Like, I’m not even white: I’m a weird shade of blue, which means that no yellow dress would ever look nice on me. What a shame, huh.

2) I cannot find said dress ANYWHERE. I’ve searched far and wide and still don’t have a clue on where to buy that dress. Hey. If you’ve seen it, tell me. I can repay you with cookies or something you know. Lots of cookies because I need that dress SO BADLY.

Sorry guys I’ll stop now. No more dresses until I press publish, close this tab and go back to Topshop hehehe.

Let’s talk tart now. As I’m guessing you’ve all got tired of me by now (and that assuming you’re still reading, holla if you are!), I’ll do a quick summary here:

PROS: Delicious, creamy, super easy to make, not-too-sweet, but sweet enough for dessert, super healthy, clean eating approved, perfect balance of fiber/carbs/protein/healthy fats, did I say delicious?, crunchy crust, pretty to boost.

CONS: You can’t cut pieces which don’t look like an utter mess unless you freeze it for a couple of hours first. So sorry about that, but that trick worked for me so you’ll be fine if you’re going that route. Anyway, it is such a shame that I hadn’t known before taking the pics, because those look disastrous oops.

 

Granola Crust Greek Yogurt Fruit Tart: so healthy you could have it for breakfast!

 

That was all, guys. You need to make this tart (and find me that dress too shhh), because it’s like having breakfast in dessert form. Healthy AND delicious. I’m seriously in love with the list of ingredients to be honest. And the tart came out really delicious too. I didn’t expect it to be such a hit, given that it was so healthy and stuff BUT everybody at home seemed to adore it and I hope you will too!

For the crust
  1. 1 + 3/4 cups rolled oats
  2. 1/2 cup unsweeted coconut flakes
  3. 1/4 cup mixed nuts (almonds and hazelnuts)
  4. 1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  5. 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  6. 5 tablespoons raw honey
  7. 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  8. 3 egg whites (90 grams total)
For the filling
  1. 400 grams 2% greek yogurt
  2. 400 grams 0% farmers cheese or quark
  3. 3 tablespoons raw honey
  4. seeds from 1 vanilla bean
  5. more stevia to taste (optional)
For the topping
  1. 300 grams grapes (or any fruit you fancy)
  2. 50 grams dark chocolate (optional)
Instructions
  1. Whisk all the dry ingredients of the curst in a bowl.
  2. Stir in wet ones and mix until combined.
  3. Grease a baking dish and press mixture.
  4. Bake at 200ΒΊC (400F) for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
  5. For the filling whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl until fluffy and creamy. Add more sweetener if you wish.
  6. Brush the bottom of the crust with melted chocolate. This is optional but this way the crust doesn't get soggy. I forgot to buy chocolate this time and my crust came out a bit soggy but it was delish either way!
  7. Fill crust with the yogurt mixture, top with fruit and enjoy!
Here are some substitutions that work
  1. If you can't find quark cheese, use all 2% greek yogurt, but make sure it is a reallt thich variety. Or you can go with pureed cottage cheese too!
  2. The filling is not too sweet this way, but that's how I like it. Feel free to add more honey/sugar/stevia or whatever you fancy!
  3. Blueberries or strawberries would be SO pretty here too!
  4. This tastes best after a day it's been made.
  5. Freeze for 1-2 hours before you cut it into pieces.
  6. This recipe is clean eating approved & gluten free!

 Again: sorry for the fact that I haven’t replied to your comments or read your blogs lately. I really hate to complain about how busy I am these days because I know I’m not the only person in the world who has to go to school/take exams/train for the half-marathon/blog/have a social life and stuff and I always feel like I bore you way too much with my problems πŸ™ But truth is I can’t find the time to do all at once anymore, so from now on I’ll be catching up on blogs on the weekend and whenever I have some free time, ok?

I hope you have a lovely weekend and pinky promise that as soon as this school year is over, we’ll all celebrate it with lots of cake and cookies.

    Topshop can be WAY dangerous. I want to buy everything! One website I love to check for dresses is simplydress {dot} com. It has a ton of dresses that are super affordable.

    This tart looks SO good!

    How fun to shop for a graduation dress. Super exciting time for you and soon you will be finally free of exams! That means more time for delicious desserts like this one. I love that you made a granola crust and you know how much I love greek yogurt πŸ˜€

    You just seriously turned my normal breakfast of yogurt with granola into a dessert tart?! That’s incredibly creative!!

  • Reply danguole April 3, 2014 at 9:36 pm

    This is so pretty! Gorgeous tart, and I love the little mini-grape branch. Just beautiful. Can you have these pictures printed on fabric and have a dress made that has this tart on it? Problems solved!

    Good luck on the dress hunt, too–I hate it when I have a very specific idea of what I want and I can’t find it anywhere.

    What a great idea, granola crust on a pie! And good look with finals!

    Your topshop = my ASOS. It was simultaneously the best/worst day ever when I discovered that website! The idea of a granola crust + greek yogurt tart completely revamps my idea of yogurt with cereal. This looks awesome, Consuelo! Love your pictures, too. πŸ™‚

    Ooh yes, finals season is my least favourite of all. I’m getting there too (first exam is on tuesday…yikes!) I hope you find your graduation dress, I always find that the perfect dress seems to appear right when you least expect it!

  • Reply Elizabeth @ SugarHero.com April 4, 2014 at 8:55 am

    Haha, it’s not your fault that blogs have to be written on the internet, which also has so many other delightful websites to browse. You were pretty much FORCED to check out the Topshop website, the way I see it. Love this tart, and good luck with finals and dress shopping!

    Topshop is so addictive!

    And your tart looks amazingly delicious and beautiful!!

  • Reply Jamie@Milk N Cookies April 4, 2014 at 1:10 pm

    Good luck searching for a graduation dress, my friend! I have the same problem of being super pale — so pale that I’ve had people ask me if I’m feeling unwell when in fact I’m perfectly healthy. It’s frustrating.

    Anyway, this tart looks beautiful. I always look longingly at fruit tarts when browsing the bakery, but I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never made one myself. Bad baking blogger, I know. I think I need to rectify that immediately by trying your recipe.

    And please don’t feel the need to apologize about being busy! Sometimes “real life” responsibilities get in the way and other stuff comes first. We understand — heaven knows I’ve abandoned my blog for weeks on end when I get too busy — it happens!

  • Reply movita beaucoup April 4, 2014 at 2:28 pm

    I’m so pale that my friends have long suspected that I’m bloodless. (I’m basically transparent.) Thus, should I wear anything yellow, people immediately ask how much longer I have to live…

    Hi Busy Bee Consuelo! Isn’t it great how versatile Greek yoghurt is? I swear I could eat it as part of every meal plus dessert without trying very hard at all! This tart looks incredible … love sound of the oaty base … and those lovely juicy grapes!

    I seriously need this tart in my life! Not only does it sound delicous but it is gorgeous!!! Perfect spring tart with those beautiful grapes. Great tip about freezing them! Good luck finding a dress…why is it never there to find when you are looking for it? πŸ˜‰

    I don’t know much about TopShop, I mean TopMen is kind of okay but being a dude, I don’t shop that much.
    But I know a lot about tarts and yours looks amazing Co, great job!

    PS Good luck with finals!

    I love the crust in this tart! The rest of it sounds wonderful too, don’t get me wrong, but that crust!

    And I am superrrrrr pale. haha so I feel your pain on that! It drives me nuts because my sister has more olive colored skin and can wear whatever the heck she wants πŸ™‚ Not this girl unfortunately! lol

    Ouch, dress searching is a serious business, you’d think with all that is available now it is easy to find, but not in the least (I know, I’m maid of honor in the wedding soon, and dress searching…) Lot’s of luck to you in your searches πŸ™‚

    LOL @ your “walker” reference. I’m pale too and yellow has never fit me well. Anyway, this tart looks magnificent. I love those great big grapes on top! And I’m so glad I could use 2% greek yorgurt instead of quark. I had never seen or heard of quark before but I’m beginning to hear a few more people mention it. Anyway, good luck finding that dress!
