Fruit Tart with Date Crust

You don’t need to give up on dessert just because you’re trying to eat healthier in 2019! This fruit tart uses a homemade crust comprised of dates, walnuts, and oats, which is much healthier than the dough version you’d usually find. Plus, we’ve substituted cream cheese for healthy Greek yogurt, which has much less sugar.
