Grand Ol Flag "Dessert"
Ok....so, I have said before, I am NOT a dessert person, I am not a sweet eater at all. I can mow down some salty chips or fries, but I am not tempted by desserts. THIS is insanity! It is delicious! Not too sweet, just sweet enough, seriously SO SO good! We ALL love it! The kids especially love this for a breakfast "casserole" lol, but with about 15g of protein per serving, depending on your serving size...I am okay with them starting their day with this!
What you need... Nut Crust 2 cups pecan pieces 1/2 cup coconut flour (you can use almond flour if you like) 1 tbsp. raw honey 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted Filling 2 - 8oz. bars organic cream cheese, softened 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract 32 oz. Chobani Simply Greek Yogurt - Vanilla or Siggi's Vanilla Topping 1 pint organic strawberries, washed, halved 6 oz. organic blueberries, washed the juice of half a lemon handful white chocolate chips (exactly 50 if you are OCD like us, lol)
Preheat the oven to 400F. Add crust ingredients to the bowl of a food processor - add in order so the honey doesn't stick to the sides ;). Pulse the blades 8-10 times, until you get a crumbly mixture. Lightly spray a 9x13 glass dish with coconut/olive oil cooking spray. Add nut crumble t the dish, spread it out and press until firmly covering the bottom of the dish. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove to cool for about an hour. Add blueberries and the juice of half a lemon to a small pot, turn to high heat and cook for about 2 minutes, or until the blueberries all pop open and a little blueberry ooze coats the bottom. Remove from heat and cool with crust. I stirred it a couple times while cooling to keep the yumminess fem sticking to the pan. Meanwhile, add cream cheese, vanilla and 1/4 cup of the yogurt to the bowl of a mixer and whip for 1 minute, until smooth and spreadable! When crust is cooled, spread cream cheese mixture over nut crust, then top with remaining yogurt. Add blueberry topping to the top left corner in a square shape. Using the strawberries, place them in lines to create the red flag stripes. Last, add the white chocolate chips to the blueberries as stars! Cover and refrigerate until needed, an hour or more! Enjoy for breakfast, dessert or even a nice refreshing Summer snack!
