Pie for breakfast!!

And it’s not even THANKSGIVING.

Who. Are. We.

I have to say….I like this new crazy c’est-la-vie side of us.

In all fairness, I would never turn down pie at any hour of any day. That’s just not really my style.

But it definitely helps make its case when it’s full of HEALTH.

Say WHHHAAATTT?

Yes, HEALTHY.PIE. Not even a little bit of an oxymoron.

With a crust full of dates and granola and a filling of choose-your-own-adventure Greek yogurt and fruit, I’m pretty sureย not eating it for breakfastย would be illegal in some states andย certainly in my apartment.

What’s even MORE fun is that if you make this in mini tart pans, you get to tell everyone you eat WHOLE PIES for breakfast and can still fit into your skinny jeans. And then you actually do get to eat the pies. I love that.

Now, I have to give some of the credit for these gems to The Recipe Redux. Our challenge for this month was to make our favorite pies, but BETTER for us. Done and done.
