This is a great treat to whip up for your friends and family who are trying to be gluten/grain/sugar-free. It’s simple and delicious.
The natural flavor and sweetness of peaches make them the perfect choice for a sugar-free dessert! (And if you have any peaches left over after you decorate the tart you can throw them on some yogurt or ice cream!)
I found a recipe for graham crackers in The Heal Your Gut Cookbook, halved it and used it as the crust for this tart. If you don’t have any objections to sugar & gluten, you can use the tart pastry from this recipe because it’s awesome.
Here’s how ya do it:
For the crust:
2 1/4 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon gelatin
1 teaspoon Poudre Douce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon H2O
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease your tart pan and set aside.
In a small bowl combine the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and stir together until a crumbly dough is formed. Turn this out into your pan and gently press it down to form an even crust. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until the edges become nice and brown.
Remove from the oven and let cool. Keep the oven on and make your topping!
For the topping:
4 peaches, peeled and sliced
1 teaspoon Chinese 5 Spice
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel and slice your peaches into a small bowl. Sprinkle with the Chinese 5 Spice and stir to coat. Lay the peaches out in one layer on your baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool a bit. Pick out a few of the less attractive slices and with an immersion blender or food processor blend them up into a nice paste. Spread this paste onto your tart crust and layer the remaining slices on top!
