Recipe: Grain-Free Raspberry Tart (SCD/GAPS)

Recipe: Grain-Free Raspberry Tart (SCD/GAPS) post image

In further celebration of my one year anniversary, I present to you my Raspberry Tart! This is a simple crust made from savory crispy pecans. Mixed with a little coconut flour and ghee, it makes for a solid, crunchy crust that is perfect for a tart. With a simple filling of sweet homemade raspberry jam and fresh raspberries it is a bright and satisfying experience!

A tart refers to a baked pastry crust with an open top filling. The filling can be sweet or savory. In modern times it is usually fruit, custard or both. The variations are endless.

Ingredients for filling

Ingredients for crust


Instructions for the crust

  1. In a food processor, process the pecans until they are tiny pieces — not a nut butter — just before
  2. Add in the honey, vanilla and salt and mix
  3. Add in the coconut flour in small increments as you may need less than 1/4 cup
  4. Add in small pieces of the butter or ghee while the processor is running to just mix with the batter
  5. Small pieces of the butter or ghee may still be seen and that is OK
  6. Oil the tart dish with coconut oil or ghee and place a circle of parchment paper at the bottom
  7. Take the dough and press into a 9 1/2″ tart pan or dish
  8. Press the dough into the sides and as evenly as you can on the bottom
  9. Bake in a 300 degrees F oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until browned
  10. Remove from the oven and let cool

Putting it all together

  1. When the crust is cool spread the jam around the bottom of the crust (you don’t have to go all the way to the sides)
  2. Place the fresh raspberries around the edges and in the middle, on top of the jam
  3. Slice and serve or refrigerate

    Oh I am so happy to come across this recipe! One of my best friends just went gluten free last year and I am always trying to find yummy sweet treats to bake her. I will be trying this out! 🙂

    This is fantastic! I used the crust from this recipe as a base for fruit pizza! I substituted crispy almonds for the pecans, and it is just as good. Then I used cream cheese sweetened with honey and vanilla as the sauce, and sliced fruit for the toppings. It was so good, my kids were delighted with it! I’ve been searching high and low for a good crust recipe, and I think I’ve found a favorite, thank you so much for sharing!

    wish I could have a slice of this right about now, i adore raspberries!

  • Lisa February 23, 2012, 3:38 pm

    I made this yesterday for dessert. I didn’t have any soaked pecans so I used almond meal. It took me 5 min to assemble it. I also used blueberries since I didn’t have any raspberries. I topped it with whipped cream. YUM!

    • Jill February 23, 2012, 3:47 pm
