Almond Tart with Raspberries & Rhubarb

45 min

Dessert

Thanks to the almonds in this recipe, the tart is super filling. One small slice is deliciously decadent and rich - definitely a dessert to impress. It's our take on a frangipane filling: smooth and sweet.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven the 180°C (350°F).
  2. For the crust, combine the almonds, dates, coconut oil, buckwheat flour, and vanilla in a food processor until blended into a sand-like consistency.
  3. Transfer the mix to a parchment-lined tart tray (we used a 10 inch / 22cm spring form pan) and press into the tray using your fingers*.
  4. For the filling, mix the flaxseeds and water in a small bowl and set aside to gel.
  5. In the same food processor, combine the almonds, sugar, margarine, and flour, and blend into a paste.
  6. Add the flaxseed mixture and combine.
  7. Pour this filling into the prepared crust and top with the raspberries and rhubarb.
  8. Bake in the centre rack of the oven for 25 - 30 minutes, or until the crust starts to turn golden at the edges.
  9. Remove from the oven, and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
  10. Sprinkle on a bit of powdered sugar for presentation if desired, and enjoy!

Notes

  • * To create a packed and even crust, we suggest starting in the middle and working your way to the sides. Use the flat bottom of a measuring cup or glass to help smooth out as you go.

Can you freeze this dessert, Sadia? I made it before and it is delicious. I love your recipes and website. I use so many of your recipes regularly.

Hey Lynn! We didn't get a chance to test it so we can't say for sure, but I imagine it would work. Just a heads up that rhubarb breaks down when it defrosts which might affect the texture, but should still be tasty 😊

Thank you

Today I made this recipe for the third time as we really enjoyed it when I made it last year. Unfortunately this year I have not been able to source any rhubarb so today I opted for apples instead and it worked just as well. I peeled the apple first and found the pieces were cooked to perfection after 25 minutes along with the rest of the tart. I also used a springform pan today which was also a bonus. 🌟🌟

We love enjoying a slice of this delicious tart warm with a dusting of powdered sugar on a chilly evening. 🌃

Mmm love the substitute for apples - sounds so delicious! Thanks for taking the time to share, Charlotte, it's so appreciated 🤗

This is a bit heavy, but if served in a a very thin slice it's very tasty!

made this for my b-day, though I replaced rhubarb with pears. it was good and everyone liked it, though for me it was too nutty, I recommend using lots of fruits for the topping, to add more freshness. thanks for the recipe!
