Blueberry Tart Recipe

Ingredients:
– 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

Directions:
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.

  1. Could you bake this for a few min in the oven…similar to this recipe, I want it to be kinda "custard-like" http://www.recipe.com/raspberry-cream-tart/

  2. Yummy yummy, this was another great recipe. I replaced the maple syrup with 1/4 cup powder sugar,add 1tsb of vanilla bourbon extract and stewed the blueberries before adding it to the pie. It was wonderful. Thanks again

  3. I love blueberries so much, or any berry for that matter. Plus, I absolutely adore tarts. So, this is a perfect match for me. I’m definitely going to try it.

  4. I'm confused. The title says 4 Points+ and the recipe says each serving = 5 Points +. So which is it? Also, the picture shows a slice of – what? – 1/6 of the tart, but the recipe calls a serving 1/12 of the tart. This seems a little misleading.

    • The photo is just for reference…..it's not meant to show an exact serving size of the tart. As for the Points +, it was a typo, and I've since corrected it. Thanks!

  5. Looks so good! And blueberries are so good for you. One question though, in the directions, it says 'beat cream cheese and sour cream…'. I assume you meant cream cheese and the greek yogurt? Just wanted to make sure I have it down right. :) Thanks for all the great recipes!
