More About This Recipe
We've pulled together a fab breakfast treat that's manly enough for the 'stache wearers among us (it's got Wheaties in it, y'all), but healthy enough to share with people you love.
These great little on-the-go fruit tarts are perfect for grab-and-go breakfasts, testosterone-laced hiking trips, and winter camping expeditions in your own backyard. Eat, grow facial hair, enjoy!
Here's your basic lineup: Wheaties and dried fruit. We're gonna add a bit of butter and sweeten with maples syrup, but that's it. Sometimes simple is exactly right.
To get started, crush the Wheaties, toss in a bit of butter and maple syrup, and mix it all together to make the crust.
Spoon your crust mixture into 12 standard muffin cups. You'll want to spray the bejeezies out of them with baking spray to make your life easier on the other side of baking and releasing these bad boys from the pan.
As if this nibble of champions couldn't get more manly, grab a shot glass and press the center of the crust down in the center of each muffin cup.
Swirl the shot glass around a bit to guide the crust up the sides of your muffin tin and make a sort of pie crust thing.
Now chop up a bag of mixed, dried fruit. This is going to become the filling.
Toss that fruit into a skillet, and then cook it all together with a smidgen of orange juice, fresh lemon juice, and maple syrup until the filling starts to soak in the juices and soften.
Spoon the filling into the crust and bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove, cool, and gently lift your Movember tarts out of the muffin tins.
Enjoy immediately or pop 'em in a backpack and hit the yonder mountains with the guys.
