Easter candy seems to take over the holiday sometimes. Take a nice long break from those chocolate peanut butter eggs and let the kids help you decorate these fruit tarts instead! The crust is made of mainly oatmeal and almond butter and the “frosting” is greek yogurt! We love using whole foods with natural sweetness
How to Make Healthy Easter Fruit Tarts
Let’s get started! The crust is a combination of almond butter, honey, oats, homemade oat flour and a little vanilla! Once the crust sticks together when you grab a fistful (and it doesn’t actually stick to your hand) you’re ready to go! Form little Easter eggs! You can do one big one, a bunch of tiny ones or a few medium sized. Give your kids some crust and let them create whatever they want. I put mine on parchment paper to minimize the cleanup when I was done.
Next, spoon on a little greek yogurt and spread it around like you’re frosting a cookie or spreading sauce on a pizza.
Chop up plenty of fruit so the kids can decorate their “eggs” with all sorts of colors and then let them decorate! You can even snack on the fruit as you go!
My favorite egg was this little patriotic one I made! Remember, we formed the crust to look like Easter Eggs but you don’t have to do that! If it’s Christmas time you could make a tree shape and decorate it with green and red fruit! Or even just press this into a tart pan and bring it to a potluck this summer! This recipe is so wonderful because you can make it perfect for any occasion!
Happy Easter! Enjoy our No-Bake Easter Egg Fruit Tarts!
No-Bake Easter Egg Fruit Tart
- In a microwave safe bowl, add almond butter, honey, vanilla and salt. Microwave for 20 seconds, then stir until smooth.
- Take 1 cup of the oats and place in a blender. Blend until the oats are finely chopped and resembles flour. Set aside.
- Add the other cup of oats to the almond butter mixture and stir. Slowly add in a little of your homemade oat flour at a time until you get a mixture that you can form into a crust. Depending on your brand almond butter the amount of flour may vary.
- Take small amounts of the mixture and form Easter egg shaped disks. Place onto parchment paper or foil for easy cleanup.
- Once all the Easter eggs are formed, spread on a layer of greek yogurt. Top with sliced fruit to make your designs and enjoy!
