What is Granola?

Granola is a breakfast or snack food consisting of rolled oats, nuts, and a sweetener such as honey or brown sugar. The mixture is then baked until it is golden brown and crisp.

There are many types of granola sold in stores included flavors granolas. You can use plain granola or a flavored granola that you think compliments your tart. I used a honey vanilla flavored granola and it was delicious!

How to Make the Tart Crust

To make the crust for your tart you start by combining the granola, softened butter, and honey in a bowl. You’ll want to make sure your butter is room temperature, not melted, so that it is a very soft but still a solid.

Once the mixture is thoroughly combined press it into a greased 11-inch tart pan or 6 greased 4-inch tart pans. Make sure to line the bottom of the tart pan with parchment paper in addition to greasing it. This will make it easier to get the removable bottom of the tart pan off of it before serving.

Place the tart pan(s) on a baking sheet and then bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.

Make sure to let the tart crust cool completely before filling.

What Type of Tart Pan to Use

A tart pan is a fluted pan with a removable bottom. They are typically round but can also come in a square or rectangle.

For this recipe you have two pan choices. You can make 1 large granola tart with an 11-inch Tart Pan or you can make 6 4-inch tarts using these 4-inch Tart Pans.

How to Make the Yogurt Filling

The simple yogurt filling is made with Greek yogurt. We used a flavored vanilla yogurt but you could use another flavor or unflavored if you prefer. The yogurt is mixed with cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract, and gelatin.

Once everything is thoroughly combined you simply pour it into the tart crust(s) and then put them in the refrigerator to firm up.

Before serving you add your favorite fruit for extra color and flavor and you have a delicious breakfast tart!

Can You Make it Ahead of Time?

Yes, this recipe can be made up to 2 days ahead of time. Make your tart crust and fill with the yogurt filling then cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator.

Add the fresh fruit right before serving.
