Quick, Easy and Healthy Lemon Tart

Lemon Tart


  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 12 Natural Delights 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.

This is the latest recipe that I have created for the wonderful people over at Natural Delights. I often use dates for any recipe I am wanting to take on a caramel taste. However, they also work perfectly for binding and bringing a sweet deliciousness to bases. Over the coming months I’ll be sure to show you many of our favourite ways to enjoy one of nature’s finest treats. For now, you can find loads of ideas on my website and also hereEnjoy.

      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.
