Strawberry Coconut Cream Tart with a Crispy Oat Crust

I’m super excited to have teamed up with Flahavan’s to create some delicious oat-based recipes – Not only delicious, but healthy and nutritious as well.  You probably already know I love using oats in my recipes – for breakfast, desserts and blitzing up oats to create a flour in seconds to make gorgeous savoury dishes. I’ve been a huge fan of Flahavan’s oats for years now as they have a unique, naturally creamy taste and texture which I love – such an amazing and healthy ingredient, and definitely not just for porridge!  

My first recipe is an absolutely delicious Strawberry Coconut Cream Tart with a Crispy Oat Crust. It’s fresh and healthy enough for breakfast, but also decadent enough for dessert. Delicious! 

You can also find a recipe for some Oaty Pancakes with Avocado and Mushrooms  – Both recipes are made with whole grains and are a source ofprotein and fibre. Happy days!  

I really hope you love these recipes as much as I do. Watch this space for more oat-based recipes! 
Enjoy Niki xx

    Hi, love the sound of this recipe. Would it work using chia seed ‘egg’ instead of the flaxseed?

      Hi Hannah
      It will work perfectly
