I LOVE TO BAKE AND BUILD THINGS!
After making my first ever pie from scratch, a delicious strawberry cream pie, I was filled with a sense of accomplishment and a desire to make even more pies! With this in mind, I thought I would be a bit adventurous and set out to create my own pie recipe from scratch...
The strawberry cream pie's silky smooth whipped cream filling got me thinking, I wonder if you could make a pie with Greek yogurt? I posited that it may be possible to make a "healthy" pie that was just as delicious as any other pie recipe out there. Using Greek yogurt as the starting point, I thought I could incorporate some other items that you might eat for breakfast.
In this recipe I started things off by adapting a graham cracker crust recipe to instead use Honey Nut Cheerios / Belvita Breakfast Crackers. I then made a creamy yogurt filling with some coconut, honey, vanilla protein powder, and of course I finished things off by making a topping with some dark chocolate almonds and some toasted cinnamon donuts!
In the end the pie turned out to be pretty delicious, and you could not even tell that is was actually healthy, except for the toasted donuts ;)
I call this the "O"de to Breakfast Pie, which is my attempt at a play on words to reference the Honey Nut Cheerio Pie Crust. I hope you enjoy!
I used a recipe from the Food Network for a Graham Cracker Crust, and adapted it to suit my ingredients.
