fruit tart

I couldn’t have been happier the day that I found this recipe. During my college days, my roommate used to take me to her house and there would always be fruit tart for dessert. It was heaven for me! I could probably have up to 15 small pieces of it. I actually asked her mom to make a fruit tart for me as a gift the day of my birthday. I was amaaaaaaaziiing!

After I graduated college, I had not had the opportunity of trying a fruit tart again. I simply forgot about them and I also haven’t seen my ex-college roommate in forever so fruit tarts haven’t joined me to make my life a little better.

So let’s cut the chat, and let’s get to this recipe that I know you will enjoy! It has no added refined sugar, flour or butter! Can it get better than that?
