Several weeks ago I made a healthy version of sweet potato pie that had a crunchy oat crust and a delicious low sugar filling for our family's Thanksgiving feast. For people who love sweet potatoes (like me), that recipe was great. But I realized there are some people who like eating healthy, but dont want to eat potatoes for dessert. This recipe uses the same oat crust from my pie recipe, but offers many different ideas for delicious, healthy, non-potato fillings. 

Makes 11-12 fruit tarts:
Ingredients: 
Crust:
1 cup Rolled Oats (3/4 cup oat flour)
1/3 cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
Cooking spray

Filling:
2-3 Frozen Bananas
optional additions:
 - Peanut Butter
 - Nuts
 - Coca Powder
 - Protein Powder
 - Frozen Blueberries  
 - Frozen Strawberries 
 - Orange Zest
 - Stevia

Topping:
1.5 cups Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
optional additions:
 - Crushed Nuts (hazelnuts would be good maybe)
 - Coca Powder
 - Protein Powder
 - Stevia 

Tools:
- Coffee grinder 
- Food processor
- Rolling pin
- Cup cake baking pan
- Baking mixers
- Oven

Step 1: The Crust

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.

If you are using rolled oats instead of oat flour, make oat flour by grinding the oats in a coffee grinder.
Add the oat flour and greek yogurt into a food processor and combine until the dough balls up.
Place the dough on a floured surface (I just used whole wheat flour) and pinch off 10-12 little dough balls. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into little circles about 1/8 inch thick. 

Spray your cupcake pans with some cooking spray and press a dough circle into each 'holder'. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 - 20 minutes, or until the crusts have hardened and browned.

Those look great! And the possibilities are endless. The nutrition facts, unfortunately, didn't show up for me.

Looks fantastic, though I think there might be a typo with 'blubbery banana'. It seems I can't type worth anything lately, so I'm not throwing stones. It did cause me to double take: when you said you could add anything...wow :)

Can't wait to make it, and thanks for sharing!

thanks for the catch! I think 'blubbery banana' could actually be a flavor, but I'm not sure if it would be as appetizing as 'blueberry banana'
yummmm so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mmm! I want to try all the flavors!
