The Good News Oats and almonds may both help lower blood pressure; they're incorporated here in an ingenious granola crust for this sweet-tart pie.

  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  2. 1/3 cup sugar
  3. 1/4 cup sliced almonds, crushed
  4. 1/4 cup rolled oats
  5. Pinch of salt
  6. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  7. 1/4 cup canola oil
  8. 1 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  9. 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  10. 1/4 cup sugar
  11. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  12. 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  13. 1/2 cup warmed apricot preserves
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, almonds, oats and salt. In a large skillet, melt the butter in the oil. Add the granola mixture and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until golden, 5 minutes; transfer to a 9-inch glass pie plate and let cool slightly.
  2. Using a flat-bottomed glass, gently press the granola evenly over the bottom and side of the pie plate to form a 1/2-inch-thick crust. Freeze the crust for about 10 minutes, until completely cooled.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk the yogurt with the eggs, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla; whisk until smooth. Pour the filling into the pie shell and bake for 25 minutes, until the filling is set but still slightly jiggly in the center. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Pour the warm apricot preserves on top of the yogurt and gently spread in an even layer. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours. Using a warm knife, cut the pie into wedges and serve.
