I found this recipe on Epicurious and changed it by replacing the wheat flour (bah, nasty stuff) with coconut flour for binding.   I think you might be able to make this raw and not bake the crusts, but let them form in the fridge for a few hours.  However, baking them results in a delicious tart.   I love using nuts in replace of a pastry case and I think it gives the tart more taste and texture too.

 

You could use a muffin tray to make the tarts, but I preferred to use a cupcake tray, as it makes neater tarts.  I used strawberry and blueberries but other fruits would be just as delicious.  Spiced plums perhaps?  I like the nut combination of walnuts and almond but pecans would be suitable too.  Add with a dollop of cream and you have a tasty treat!
