Today’s Best Recipe is Easy Fruit Tarts.

This lighter, easy Fruit Tarts recipe is a great snack. You won’t believe how easy they are to make!

With summer fading, we’re looking for lighter, easy recipes to snack on. My kiddos love pie, but I don’t like an oven being on for an hour, and pie crust can be complicated. I created this EASY Fruit Tarts Recipe to bring summer flavors and add the benefits of whole grains. The tart shell tastes a lot like a Waffle Cone.

I want my kiddos to have a nutritious diet, and I don’t think that means having to give up things that taste good. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend that adults eat 48 grams[1] or more of whole grains daily, and children ages 4-13 years old eat a minimum of 40-48 grams per day[2]. Studies have shown, however, that the majority of children and adults are not consuming the recommended amount of whole grains.  

I created this incredibly easy EASY Fruit Tarts Recipe. It’s been a massive hit to my family, and they’re pretty fun to make.
