  • Combine oats and almonds in a food processor and pulse until they're the texture of sand. Add 1/2 cup maple syrup, vanilla and salt, then distribute butter evenly over the top. Pulse until combined. Turn the dough out onto the prepared baking sheet. With wet hands, gently press it into a 9-by-12-inch rectangle. Pierce the crust all over with a fork and brush with egg.

  • Bake the crust until browned, rotating the pan from back to front halfway through, about 25 minutes. Let cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then use 2 -spatulas to carefully transfer it to a cutting board.

  • Just before serving, combine fruit and sugar in a medium bowl. Beat cream and the remaining 3 tablespoons maple syrup in a large bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in yogurt. Spread the whipped cream over the crust. With a slotted spoon, arrange the fruit on top. Cut into 16 pieces and serve immediately.

Tips

To make ahead: Prepare crust (Steps 1-3), cover and store at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Equipment: Parchment paper

Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled “gluten-free,” as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
