Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa unsweetened
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup sugar free
  • 1 tablespoon flax egg (flax mixed in water)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Filling

  • 12 oz cranberries fresh or frozen
  • ¾ cup brown monkfruit sweetener or other low carb sweetener
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons agar agar

Instructions

Make the Tart Crust

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees. Thoroughly grease/oil a 8 inch tart tin. Preferable one with a removable base.
  • In a medium mixing bowl add the almond flour, salt and cocoa. Mix until even in colour.
  • Add the coconut oil, flax egg and maple syrup and mix into a dough. If the mixture is too crumbly, add a tablespoon or two of water to bind the dough.
  • Place the dough into the centre of the tart case and with clean damp hands, press the mixture into the tart case and along the edges to form the crust.
  • Place the tart case on a baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until firm.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool whilst you make the filling.

Make the Cranberry Filling

  • Place the cranberries in a medium sauce and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until the berries have popped.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and blend the cranberries until smooth. Either with a hand blender or put the mixture in a blender. Just be careful of the hot mixture when blending.
  • Return the blended cranberry mixture to the saucepan and add the sweetener and coconut milk. Taste test and adjust the sweetener if required.
  • Sprinkle the agar agar on top of the mixture and stir in.
  • Simmer on a medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, occasionally stirring until the agar agar has dissolved and the mixture starts to thicken.
  • Pour the cranberry filling into the tart case and place in the refrigerator to set overnight.
