Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal Breakfast Tart with Blueberry Sauce

Here's a fun fact for everyone: I have never made a tart. I guess you could say I bake less and cook more. But, I am also a sucker for your not-so-healthy sweet breakfast and may or may not choose pie or cupcakes when they are available. THEY JUST GO SO WELL WITH COFFEE, OKAY?

But, I also like to be healthy, and those two likes don't really go together. So, what does this not-so-baker do? I set off to make a sorta-baked, sweet but healthy breakfast tart!

It's the season of berries! A perfect opportunity to play around with sweet but healthy options for your breakfast!

Well, you could always have an Independence Day movie brunch and serve this. Yeah, that would work. participates in select affiliate advertising programs, which means that I get a commission if you decide to purchase the product after clicking on the link.
