Fresh Fruit Tart with Almond Crust

Dish Type: Sneaky-Healthy Desserts


  • Crust:
  • 1 cup Almonds
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 cup Oat Bran
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 3 tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 3 tablespoon Canola Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • Filling Ingredients:
  • 4 Kiwis, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 Peaches, thinly sliced
  • 3 cups Berries of choice
  • 1 cup Apple Juice
  • 1/4 cup Fruit Nectar or Juice of choice
  • 2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Agar Powder or Flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Arrowroot or Kudzu
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Preparing crust:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place nuts in a food processor and pulse to chop coarsely.  Add rolled oats, oat bran, and salt and process until mixture resembles coarse meal.  In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, oil and almond extract.  Add to almond-oat mixture and process to combine.  Transfer to 9-inch oiled tart pan or springform pan and press down to form crust.  Pierce several times with fork and bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and set aside on wire rack to cool.

Assembling Tart:

Arranged sliced kiwis and peaches around outside edge of the tart and fill the center with berries.  In a medium pot over no heat, combine apple juice, fruit nectar, syrup, agar, and arrowroot.  Turn the heat to medium-high and whisk continuously until agar dissolves and mixture thickens.  Add vanilla, remove from heat and set aside to cool 5 minutes.  Spoon evenly over tart and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
