Sunday's brunch

This last Sunday, before service we had a church breakfast. I made a fruit pizza, that everybody loved. :) So I thought I would share the recipe with you all. We normally eat it for breakfast; although it can be eaten as a dessert. It is very healthy for you.
This makes a very small batch. For my family of six, I would triple it, unless served with other side dishes.

2 Tablespoon butter
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats, uncooked
1/4 sesame seeds or flax seeds
1/2 whole wheat flour or red wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup finely minced walnuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a small saucepan melt butter and honey, set aside.

In a bowl combine oats, sesame, flour, salt, cinnamon, walnuts and vanilla. Add in butter-honey mixture, stirring until well mixed.

Press crust firmly and evenly into the bottom and around the sides of a 9 inch pie pan.

Cream layer:
8oz of cream cheese
2 tablespoons Maple Syrup

Mix these together till very creamy. The amounts is just a guess. Taste it before you spread it on the crust. Feel free to add more maple or cream cheese, do it till it taste right. Spread an even layer on the oatmeal crust.

Fruit Layer:
This is the fruit we like to have on ours, but feel free to experiment with your favorite fruit.
Strawberries thinly sliced long ways
grapes thinly sliced long ways
Kiwi thinly sliced long ways

This is a fun treat in the summer, especially to take to parties. There is such a variety in color in this plate that makes it truly beautiful. The great thing about this plate is it is so good for you. This is one of our families favorite recipe.
