These Yogurt Tarts with Granola Crust are a delicious and easy snack option. The gluten free granola crust can be made ahead for quick assembly of the tarts. Fill each crust with your favorite flavor yogurt and you have a wholesome food that naturally fits your lifestyle. Top the tarts with fresh fruit to add extra sweetness and a beautiful presentation. Enjoy the tarts for breakfast or a quick on-the-go-snack!
If you have been around for a while you know that I adore fruit, yogurt, granola, oatmeal, basically anything light and wholesome. I often eat a banana and yogurt for breakfast, sometimes with granola.
Then, for lunch, I enjoy a bowl of oatmeal topped with loads of fresh fruit. Or I’ll snack on these banana peanut butter snack bites.
I run a dessert/baking blog, but I really try to be conscious about what I eat. I simply can’t eat cakes and cupcakes every day of my life.
For that reason, I usually include a few recipes here and there that contain less sugar and more nutrients. These yogurt tarts with granola crust fit right into that category. There’s no added refined sugar or butter and they are completely gluten free.
These bite-sized tarts are so simple. One of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make.
The crust is made from one ingredient, Van’s Simply Delicious Gluten Free Granola. I chose to make two different versions of the tarts so I used Cocoa Sensation and Banana Nut. You can use any flavor you prefer.
Spoon a couple tablespoons of granola into the wells of a mini-muffin tin and press it in to shape the base. Press the back of a measuring spoon into the center of each base to make a well. Bake the crust for a few minutes so it sets and holds shape.
Spoon Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt over the crusts once they have cooled. I filled the chocolate crusts with strawberry yogurt and the banana nut crusts with vanilla bean yogurt. Get creative and use your own favorite flavor combinations.
Top the yogurt tarts with corresponding bits of fruit or any fruit you so desire. Make a design or simply stack the fruit on top. I kept mine simple because I’m really a simple kind of person.
