NO BAKE BLUEBERRY YOGURT TART WITH CEREAL CRUST

Do you love fresh ripe berries and creamy filling? I was inspired to create a new fun breakfast recipe and found the perfect way to incorporate our morning meal and dessert all into one. This blueberry yogurt tart with cereal crust is the ultimate mash up!

To inspire you to switch up your breakfast routine, I’ve created a tasty pie crust with the cereal as the base. It’s so easy to make and a much more interesting way to start your day. Are you ready to hear the best part?

Everything is NO BAKE! Yep, no stove or oven needed. In just one pan you’ve got a slice of sunshine packed with protein, fruit, fiber, nuts and whole grains in each bite. Let’s go!

For a more exciting and interesting way to incorporate cereal, I chose Great Grains Blueberry Morning. It’s loaded with crispy whole-grain-clusters, real dried blueberries, and crunchy nuts which all together taste amazing! With just the right amount of natural sweetness, it’s also just the right choice for this fruit tart recipe.

The star of the show is the tender cereal crumb crust. It’s a simple combination of Great Grains Blueberry Morning cereal, flaxseed for extra fiber, coconut oil to help bind the crust and pure maple syrup for a hint of sweetness.

Here’s an easy way to spruce up any yogurt! Create your own flavor by adding fresh fruit to plain Greek yogurt. This way you can add more healthy fruits and control the amount of sweetness.

For this recipe, I added just a touch of vanilla and maple syrup to balance the natural tartness of the yogurt. Stevia, honey or any other sweetener also works great. This customized creation is added straight into the tart for a luscious and creamy filling. The milk proteins and probiotics add extra nutrition to the dish, score!

Who would have known just how versatile cereal could be? Of course, a big bowl of cereal and cold milk is a traditional way to enjoy each spoonful, but now you’ve got a blueberry yogurt tart recipe to try! You can even make something savory like these crispy baked chicken tenders. Have some fun using your imagination and playing in the kitchen.
