For those of us #blessed with a sweet tooth, having healthy yet delicious dessert recipes on deck is essential. Because chances are, if your fridge isn't already stocked and ready with the good-for-you ingredients required to whip up a batch of sweet potato brownies or chia seed pudding, you might just resort to eating almond butter straight from those cute to-go packets, like The Devil Wears Prada author Lauren Weisberger.

Fortunately, Remy Park—the vegan and gluten-free recipe creator behind Instagram account @veggiekins—happens to feel the same way. So, she dreamed up a healthier-for-you two-ingredient treat that makes it totally possible for you to—yep—eat pie for breakfast.

"I didn’t want to make a crust from scratch the other day, so I pressed some bars into a tiny dish to become the base to see if it would work. And since then have been doing it nonstop," she wrote in the caption of a recent post. Once your pie crust is molded, simply "fill with nondairy yogurt or cashew cream and freeze!" You also can sprinkle the pie with healthy toppings like blueberries, coconut, and chia seeds before or after chilling your pie in the freezer. And voilà! You'll have one seriously Instagrammable brekkie on your hands.

For her crust, Park prefers superfood-packed R.e.d.d. bars in the oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate flavors, but you could presumably make it with any of your go-to nutrition bars—so long as they share a similar malleable texture.

Be warned, though: Park's bar of choice packs a ton of caffeine and protein, so this pie is actually best served in the a.m.—unless you want to stay awake all night, potentially making you feel drunk at work the next day.
