Quick, Easy and Healthy Lemon Tart

Lemon Tart


  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 12 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • pinch of salt


  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Zest and juice two lemons
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  1. Place the base ingredients into your processor and blend until the mixture resembles a fine, sticky crumb. Use your hands to press the mixture firmly into the base and a centimetre or two up the sides of an 18cm spring form pan. Place the base into the fridge to set.
  2. Place the egg yolks, honey, maple syrup, lemon zest and juice into a saucepan and whisk to combine. Place the saucepan over low – medium heat and add the oil. Whisk continuously for five minutes or until the mixture starts to thicken. Do not let the mixture boil. You may need to reduce the heat. Spoon the mixture into a bowl and leave to cool. Once cool spoon the mixture over your base and return to the fridge to set.
  3. Slice. Serve. Eat and enjoy.

I tried to make the lemon curd in the thermomix and it just didn’t thicken. Transferred the contents to a pot on the stove and it was perfect.

Made this and it has turned out beautiful, thank you. One question I have is, what is the sugar content per 100g for this recipe?

I did this in my Bellini. Temp 80DegC, Speed 3, 18mins, MC off using butterfly. I tried the 8mins that Monica Taylor suggested above but it was still runny. But my lemons were quite jucy.
