It’s peach season and this week I’m about to post all peach recipes this week. Here is one from last summer that is worth a repost.
Almonds love peaches, and it’s hard to imagine a better way to bring them together with this low carb peach almond tart. This is keto friendly, paleo friendly and gluten free.
I made many almond tarts here at Spinach Tiger because this is one of my all time favorite desserts. Today, I have a summer version made with fresh peaches from the Peach Truck.
The crust is made with almond flour and butter. The filling is made with heavy cream, sliced almonds and Swerve’s brown sugar replacement, making this keto friendly.
Peaches Love Almonds
This low carb peach almond tart might be the best thing that happens to you this summer. You can freeze it and it comes out of the freezer and heats up beautifully.
I took inspiration from the Chez Panisse Almond Tart I made here. I switched out the shortbread for a almond flour tart crust and the sugar with Swerve. The great news is that Swerve now makes a brown sugar that is amazing.
I caramelized some peaches with the almonds before adding it to the heavy cream and baking which seems like a dessert you could never consider low-carb.
The Baking Process for Grain Free Peach Almond Tart
The first thing you need to do is par-bake the tart crust. Keep in mind that almond flour can burn easily so par-bake at 350 Degrees F. (180 C.) I bake for about six minutes before filling with peaches, almonds and heavy cream. Make sure to put foil around the edges.
Did you know you can freeze peaches?
Ingredients for Grain Free Peach Almond Tart
- Fresh Summer Peaches are the inspiration for this peach almond tart.
- Almond flour is used for the crust. Make sure it is blanched super fine flour. I like this brand. You can make your own blanched almond flour here.
- Heavy Whipping cream brings it together, and is first heated on top of the stove with granulated Swerve.
- Sugar Free Brown Sugar. Before I add the almonds and peaches to the tart, I caramelize them on top of the stove using Swerve’s brown sugar. (amazon) It’s a new product and works just like brown sugar. You can use regular Swerve if you don’t have the brown sugar.
