Oat and Yogurt Fruit Pizza
(more info here with photos) 
By Monica              Servings: 12 servings
Ingredients
  • FOR YOGURT PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING*:
  • 2 cups (16 oz) Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter (or PB2 powdered peanut butter); may substitute other nut butter like almond, walnut, or cashew
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons honey, or more to taste; may substitute other preferred sweetener
  • FOR OATMEAL COOKIE CRUST:
  • 1/3 cup grapeseed, vegetable, or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or half white and half whole wheat flour)
  • 3/4 cups rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • FOR FRESH FRUIT:
  • Varied colors make a pretty presentation. Choose from sliced strawberries, kiwi, bananas; halved grapes or cherries; whole blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries; canned mandarin oranges or peach slices (drained & dried)
Directions
(1) MAKE THE FROSTING:
In medium bowl, add frosting ingredients and stir until well combined. Taste and add more honey, if needed. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

(2) MAKE THE COOKIE CRUST:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12-inch pizza pan with parchment paper, extending it 1 inch from the pan edge on at least 2 sides; set aside. In large bowl, whisk together oil, applesauce, brown sugar, egg, & vanilla until well combined.  Add flour, oats, baking powder, & flaxseed; stir with wooden spoon until well combined. Stir in chopped walnuts. Transfer dough to center of parchment-covered pizza pan, and spread with back of wooden spoon evenly to edges of pan. Bake 15 minutes until starting to slightly brown around edges and is firm in center. Cool 15 minutes in pan on cooling rack. Use parchment paper "handles" to remove crust from pan and transfer to cooling rack; cool completely. Invert onto serving plate; carefully peel off parchment paper. Turn crust over.

(3) FROST AND TOP WITH FRUIT: Frost crust with chilled yogurt frosting, spreading evenly all the way to the edge. Arrange fresh fruit on top in circles, beginning on the outside edge and filling towards the center. Serve right away, or chill for up to 4 hours before serving.

*FOR CHOCOLATE YOGURT FROSTING, omit peanut butter and add 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa; stir until well combined and smooth. Taste and add more honey, if needed.

GLUTEN FREE OPTION: Use gluten-free oats and substitute gluten-free oat flour for the wheat flour.

MAKE AHEAD TIPS. You can make the crust and frosting ahead and store for up to 24 hours in advance so they're ready to assemble the next day. Bake the cookie crust, cool, cover, and store at room temperature.  Mix the yogurt frosting, cover and chill in fridge. The next day, frost the crust, slice and arrange the fruit, and it's ready to serve.

WOW Factor Homeschool picks #atozchallenge














Homeschooling with WOW is really an everyday thing, being able to school my children at home and experience learning with them is a WOW. But, when you have helps that add to the Wow factor that makes it that much more special. Here are 3 of my WOW factor picks for today. Hope you find them as helpful and WOWful as I have. 

--My first WOW is probably the best book ever if you are starting out homeschooling, written by Mary Pride, this book deserves a spot on your bookshelf. 
Mary Pride's Complete Guide to Getting Started in Homeschooling
Per Amazon website book description:
One of America’s leading homeschool experts provides families with everything they could possibly need to know to start schooling at home in this 600–page volume. As entertaining as it is enlightening, this incredible storehouse of information...
  • explains the advantages of homeschooling and corrects common misconceptions
  • encourages and equips parents who may be reticent to start teaching at home
  • gives tons of detailed, practical information on methods and materials
This encyclopedic reference includes chapters on the ways kids learn, planning and record keeping, testing and standards, and special–needs and gifted children. Families who are just getting started in homeschooling as well as experienced homeschool families who need more information will find answers to all their questions in this one–of–a–kind resource.

I used this book when I was first starting out and it was a great resource to me, I still refer back to it from time to time even now. 

--My 2nd WOW factor is another book resource: 
Per the Amazon website: book description
101 Top Picks makes it easy for home educators to select the right curriculum for each family situation and each child's learning style. Widely-recognized curriculum expert Cathy Duffy walks you through the curriculum selection process: goal setting, figuring out which educational approach to use, developing your own philosophy of education, determining your teaching style, and identifying your children's learning styles. "At-a-glance" charts highlight key features of each Top Pick selection. Scanning through the charts allows you to quickly identify products likely to be of interest. The charts are followed by extensive reviews of each of Cathy's Top Picks. This is an updated and heavily revised edition of 100 Top Picks for Homeschool Curriculum (2005).

I have the first edition of the book and it helped me so much to pick and choose curriculum my first years of homeschooling. Cathy does such a great job with the descriptions of your choices that you are not left totally lost when you finish. I actually thought I knew something about homeschooling in my first year. I highly recommend buying a copy of this edition for yourself and keeping it. Do not loan it out, it might not come back to you...lol.

--My 3rd WOW factor is not a book, but a huge list of links that I recently ran across while searching for something else on my favorite spot "Pinterest". Heather from "Sprittibee.com blog has compiled this awesome  "Big Fat Homeschool Link List" that is the most WOW list I have seen in a long time. I wanted to blog about it and save the site link, so I will have it myself. 


A little excerpt of the list from Sprittibee.com : http://sprittibee.com/2013/01/my-big-fat-homeschool-links-list.html , you need to visit her site to glean the awesomeness of the Fat list!! It is amazing.
