Enjoy! x Ash
Makes 12 mini tarts or 1 x 8 inch fluted tart pan or springform.
2 cups Pecans or Almonds
1/4 cup Maple Syrup or Rice Malt Syrup
1/4 cup Coconut Flour
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted
2 tablespoons Almond Butter
1/4 teaspoon of Sea Salt
Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until mix is crumbly, sticky, and holds together when presses between your thumb and forefinger.
Press into a parchment lined springform pan or mini muffin tins for individual tarts.
NO BAKE METHOD
Place in freezer to set for one hour.
Fill with cooled curd or a scoop of PB and top with choc chips. Jokes! Not really, SO YUM.
You can fill these with anything you’d like. This is a great all-rounder base for many tarts.
WANT A GOLDEN CRUNCHY CRUST?

DAIRY FREE LEMON CURD
Two extra large free-range Eggs, plus one yolk
1/3 of a cup of Honey or Rice Malt Syrup
The zest of two wax free organic Lemons
1/2 cup Lemon Juice

2-3 drops good quality food grade Lemon Essential Oil
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a small pot and cook on low heat stirring slowly and consistently for 5 minutes until mix begins to thicken.
Add the 1/2 cup lemon juice and coconut oil.
Continue to stir for another 1-2 minutes allow juice to warm and the coconut oil to melt and incorporate into the egg mix.
Remove from heat. Add essential oil if using and cool completely.
