Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar, or organic brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon egg white
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger, divided
  • 2 cups frozen berries, or fresh
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
  • 1 6 ounce package Neufatchel cheese, or cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 fresh peaches, de-pitted, skins removed (optional), and thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine almond flour, 3 tablespoons coconut oil, sugar, egg white, and 1/2 teaspoon ginger in a mixing bowl. Mix well, then press mixture in to a 10 inch tart pan that has been coated with a little coconut oil.
  • Bake tart in oven for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. When finished baking, cool slightly, then transfer to refrigerator for 20 minutes to cool completely.
  • While crust is baking, make the berry sauce. Heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a medium sauté pan. Add berries and 1 tablespoon maple syrup, and cook over medium heat, while stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes. Carefully place warm berry mixture in to a blender along with 1/2 teaspoon ginger, and blend on high until pureed. Store sauce in refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Combine Neufatchel/Cream cheese, Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl, and beat with a hand mixer until well combined. Store cheese/yogurt mixture in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • To prepare tart: Spread cream cheese/yogurt mixture over tart crust, then arrange peach slices on top. Drizzle berry sauce on top to serve.

Notes

Ingredient Swaps:

  • The coconut oil gives the ginger peach tart a nice flavor, but you can use expeller pressed high oleic sunflower oil or macadamia nut oil instead-both provide more monounsaturated fats.
  • I used a frozen organic mixed berry blend for the sauce-feel free to swap with your favorite berries-fresh or frozen.
  • Neufatchel cheese is lower in fat than cream cheese-use whichever one you prefer.
  • If you don’t have ground ginger, ground cinnamon works well in this recipe too.
