Directions

Step 1

Grease a 9 inch tart tin with coconut oil and set aside.

Step 2

To prepare the crust add oats and almonds into a food processor. Process for about 5-10 seconds until coarsely ground.

Place in freezer for about an hour to set while working on the lemon lavender filling.

For the filling add cashews with 2 tbsp of the coconut cream into a food processor and process until completely smooth (may take up to 5 minutes depending on the quality of the food processor).

Step 6

In a medium sized pot add the rest of the coconut cream, maple syrup, cashew mixture, coconut oil, lemon, lemon zest and lavender.

Step 7

Over low-medium heat simmer for about 10 minutes. Strain mixture into a bowl and set aside for 5-10 minutes.

Step 8

Pour mixture into the tart and refrigerate for about 4 hours or overnight to set.

Step 9

Garnish with fresh lemons or dried lavender and serve. Cover tart and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Note:

*Make sure to squeeze out any excess liquid from the pulp.
