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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
- 1 + 3/4 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup unsweeted coconut flakes
- 1/4 cup mixed nuts (almonds and hazelnuts)
- 1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
- 5 tablespoons raw honey
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 3 egg whites (90 grams total)
- 400 grams 2% greek yogurt
- 400 grams 0% farmers cheese or quark
- 3 tablespoons raw honey
- seeds from 1 vanilla bean
- more stevia to taste (optional)
- 300 grams grapes (or any fruit you fancy)
- 50 grams dark chocolate (optional)
- Whisk all the dry ingredients of the curst in a bowl.
- Stir in wet ones and mix until combined.
- Grease a baking dish and press mixture.
- Bake at 200ºC (400F) for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
- For the filling whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl until fluffy and creamy. Add more sweetener if you wish.
- 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!
- Fill crust with the yogurt mixture, top with fruit and enjoy!
- 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!
- 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!
- Blueberries or strawberries would be SO pretty here too!
- This tastes best after a day it's been made.
- Freeze for 1-2 hours before you cut it into pieces.
- 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 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.
