Easter break is soon here and making breakfast fun during the holidays will help kids get excited about healthy eating, and this is a great recipe to have kids help prepare.
We encourage students to help prepare meals in their KES Clubs. Established food safety practices are in place and procedures are followed; such as proper hand washing and use of glove and hair nets, and this is important. At our KES Clubs, kids are welcome to help prepare and serve breakfast each morning.
Try this fun recipe at your Kids Eat Smart Club this week or next week at home with the kids.
Easter Egg Fruit Tart
- 1 cup almond butter (check on nut allergies in your school)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cup oats, dry
- 3/4 cup Greek yogurt, vanilla
- 3/4 cup strawberries
- 3/4 cup blueberries
- 1 medium banana
- 3/4 cup grapes, green
- 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!
