Coconut Strawberry Tarts
Servings: 6 tarts
A low carb tart baked with coconut flour and filled with unsweetened coconut and strawberries.
- 1 ½ cup Desiccated coconut unsweetened
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup erythritol
- ¼ cup butter, unsalted melted
- ½ cup strawberries sliced
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons erythritol
Place the pastry ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and a dough appears.
Remove the dough and shape into a ball. Cover with parchment paper and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
In a bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy
Add the erythritol, melted butter and vanilla.
Add coconut and stir until combined.
In a small saucepan add the strawberries, erythritol and water.
Bring to the boil and then simmer for 5 minutes until cool.
Remove from the heat and gently mash.
If the mixture is too runny, add ½ teaspoon xanthan gum to thicken
ALTERNATIVELY use 2 tablespoons strawberry chia jam
Lightly grease either a muffin tin or small tart cases. (I used silicone cases)
Remove the pastry from the fridge and cut into 6 even pieces.
Shape the pastry piece into a ball and then press the pastry into the case, spreading it out evenly.
Spoon the strawberry mixture on the bottom of the pastry case.
Add the coconut mixture and fill up to the top of the pastry case.
Bake at 190C/375F degrees for 25-35 minutes until the top of the tart is golden and firm.
