Title: Almond & medjool date tart
Post by: angelaisaacs on November 24, 2017, 10:32:57 AM
A healthier take on a date tart with a luxuriously creamy but sugar-free filling surrounded by a buttery rich but oil-free almond crust and crumble!

CRUST
3 cups almond flour
3 tbsp maple syrup
3-4 tbsp water

FILLING
8-10 pitted Medjool dates for layering in the bottom, chopped
1 cup pitted Medjool dates about 15
2 cups lite canned coconut milk*
tsp vanilla bean powder or 1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp . cornstarch or arrowroot starch

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 375F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour and maple syrup. Mix with a fork adding the water 1 tablespoon at a time until the texture is clumpy and holds together when squeezed.
Press 2/3 of the dough into a tart pan, making sure to cover all sides evenly and reserving 1/3 of the dough for the topping.
Spread the chopped dates into the bottom of crust.
Blend the 1 1/2 cup of dates with the coconut milk, vanilla, salt, and cornstarch until very smooth.
Pour into the crust. Spread evenly, covering the chopped dates.
Sprinkle on the remaining crust mixture.
Bake for approximately 45 mins at 375F.
Let it cool, then chill overnight before slicing and eating.
Keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
