Strawberry tarts are literally my favorite! But they're so unhealthy with all that sugar oozing underneath those strawberries! This recipe, though, is still delicious and so much better for my waistline. My kids even liked them! I know exactly what I'm taking to my next potluck and Summer parties. #brunchideas #strawberryrecipes #yogurtrecipes #breakfasttart #strawberrytart

Most strawberry tarts feature a floury, buttery crust with a mixture of cool whip, cream cheese, and a whole lot of sugar oozing underneath those beautiful bright red strawberries.

These strawberry tarts also taste quite heavenly…but are SO not helpful to this now 30-year old’s waistline!

So I went searching for a lighter alternative for a quick strawberry tart recipe with just as much flavor, without packing on extra inches.

With a bit of maple syrup for sweetness, hearty oats, and good-for-you Greek yogurt, you won’t feel guilty indulging in this recipe for breakfast, a light snack, or healthy dessert. It would also make a lovely presentation for a Mother’s Day or shower brunch!

How to Make a Lighter, Quick Strawberry Tart

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat an 8″ tart pan with cooking spray or butter. {Don’t have a tart pan? I recommend this one!}

Step 2: Place oats, sunflower seeds (optional), and coconut in a food processor and pulse until finely ground.

Step 3: Place butter, salt, and maple syrup in a small bowl and microwave in 15-sec increments until butter melts. Add to oat mixture and pulse until coarse crumbs form.

Step 4: Press oat and butter mixture into bottom and up the sides of the pan. Bake until golden brown and dry (about 12-15 min.). Let cool on a wire rack.

Step 5: Spread yogurt on top of the crust. Place strawberries on top. Serve immediately. Voila! A quick strawberry tart of your very own!
