Greek Yogurt Granola Pie

I am so. so. so. so proud of myself. I'm a mad scientist in the kitchen.

Sometimes it's disastrous, but sometimes it's exquisite! This recipe is one of the latter, thank goodness!

This dish was developed out of a desire to use things in my fridge and conveniently covers my love for things that taste like dessert but can be eaten for breakfast, guilt-free AND gluten-free (I'm 99.9999% positive on this- if any of these ingredients look suspicious, let me know in the comments). Get ready. 

Greek Yogurt Granola Pie


1 cup quick oats (not intentional- I thought they were regular oats but I guess I bought the wrong kind)
1/4 cup crushed raw almonds (food processor works well)
1/4 cup unsweetened dried coconut
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp Sun Crystals (equivalent to 2 tsp sugar)
sprinkle cardamom
1/4 c applesauce
1 tsp coconut oil

Preheat oven to 300F. Mix dry ingredients. Add applesauce and coconut oil. 

Roll mixture into a ball and place in a lightly greased pie dish. Flatten, raising edges slightly. 
Bake for 10 minutes.


1 cup greek yogurt
1 tbsp Polaner All-Fruit Sugar-Free with Fiber Seedless Raspberry Preserves *GF*
1 tbsp TJ's Fig Butter *GF? Ingredients are- figs, water, sugar, lemon juice concentrate and pectin)*
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
1 tsp soy flour
8 drops French Vanilla Stevia

Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl, mix well. Pour into pre-baked crust and bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool and then refrigerate before serving.
