Happy Sunday everyone! It is a beautiful day here in Montpellier. When we woke up this morning we both wanted a nice fresh healthy breakfast. We decided to make kiwi tarts (tartelettes in French). There has been more and more “no sugar added” sweets on the internet. We really like the concept because it’s a great way to indulge that sweet tooth but keeping it healthy. Everyone likes to treat himself or herself to a good dessert once in a while! It’s only human. Our philosophy is really to eat healthy 95% of the time at home (and by healthy we mean: no sugar, butter, pre-prepared foods, saturated fat, ect… you can read more about it here) and when you go out with friends have a nice time and not stress and think : can I eat this? Oh no, I’m going to ruin my diet, ect…
We were wondering if anyone would like us to add our typical meal plan for the week? We are not looking to lose weight but for those of you who are it may help. That’s enough food for thought (no pun intended), now to the recipe!
Makes 2-4 small tartelettes
150 grams of 5 cereal muesli
50 grams of whole almonds (or powdered)
1 small apple
2 tablespoons of orange juice
1 or two tablespoons of maple syrup (optional, we didn’t use any but you can for extra sweetness)
Preheat oven to 175C.
Put almonds and 5 cereal muesli in a blender or food processor and blend into meal. In a separate bowl, set the mixture aside. Cut the apple into quarters and add to blender with orange juice. Blend until a puree has formed. Add the puree to almond muesli mixture and stir so that everything has mixed together. It should be a little sticky. Line a pan with baking paper and evenly flatten the mixture with a spoon (a thickness of 1 cm). If the mixture sticks to the spoon you can coat the back of the spoon with some of olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes (or until golden brown).
Peel kiwis and cut into thin slices.
Remove from stove. Cut crust into circles (you can do it with a mug) and place sliced kiwis on crust.
And there you have it. A quick simple Sunday treat or dessert!
Why this is good for me:
This is a no sugar tart (can be used as a dessert or for breakfast). It is a high fiber, full of vitamins and delicious recipe. Most of all it is guilt free!
