Blueberry Tart Recipe
– 1 cup whole wheat graham cracker crumbs
– 1/2 cup walnuts, lightly toasted
– 1 large egg white
– 1 tbsp light butter, melted
– 1/2 tbsp canola oil
– Pinch of salt
– 2 cups fresh blueberries
– 8 oz reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
– 1/4 cup fat free vanilla flavored Greek yogurt
– 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, Grade A
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Coarsely chop walnuts in a food processor. Add graham cracker crumbs and process until the mixture looks like fine crumbs.
Whisk egg white in a medium bowl until frothy. Add the crumb mixture, butter, oil and salt; toss to combine. Press the mixture into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9-inch removable-bottom tart pan. Set the pan on a baking sheet. Bake until dry and slightly darker around the edges, about 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
To prepare filling: Beat cream cheese, yogurt and 1/4 cup maple syrup in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. When the crust is cool, spread the filling evenly into it, being careful not to break up the delicate crust. Arrange blueberries on the filling, pressing lightly so they set in. Chill for at least 1 hour in the fridge.
