Ingredients
  • Base:
  • 90g ground almonds
  • 90g + 50g oats*
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Pinch good salt
  • Filling:
  • 300g berries (I used a mixture of blackberries and blueberries)
  • 2 peaches (or 4 flat peaches)
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder
Method
  1. Heat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4.
  2. First, use a little of the coconut oil to grease a 9-inch springform cake tin.
  3. Next, make the base. Blitz 90g of the oats in a food processor and tip into a bowl with the whole oats and the rest of the base ingredients.
  4. Put aside a handful of the base mixture for later. Press the rest into the cake tin, pushing some up the sides to a height of about 1 inch. It might take a few minutes of fiddling with the mixture, but it does all eventually stick together.
  5. Now, make the filling. Stone and thinly slice the peaches and rinse the berries. Again, put a handful aside for later (this will make the topping).
  6. Put the fruit and remaining filling ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth.
  7. Pour the filling into the base you've made in the cake tin.
  8. Decorate the top of the tart with the base mixture and fruit you put aside earlier.
  9. Cook for 45 minutes, covering loosely with foil or brown paper after half an hour is the fruit is burning. If it doesn't look quite set when you jiggle the tin, cook for another 15 minutes.
  10. Leave in the tin to cool and set fully, then place in the fridge for at least a couple of hours (this works well made the day before and left overnight).
Notes
*Use gluten-free oats is necessary.
