This easy recipe is Paleo-friendly, gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan.It’s been a little while since I posted something healthier, because I’ve been too busy shoving lots of cookies and cakes in your face (and my face). No regrets, you (we) deserved some chocolate.

However, it’s time for a little detox. Not a real detox though, because real detoxes are hard and not delicious. This detox involves a raspberry coconut crumble tart, which is anything but hard, and it’s most definitely delicious.

This easy recipe is Paleo-friendly, gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan.After sooo much chocolate, I was craving something light and fruity. Because I adore raspberries, hadn’t baked with them in a while, and they were on sale at the grocery store, they became the star of the show.

Normally I wouldn’t think to pair coconut and raspberries, but Natalie over at Tastes Lovely made an incredible looking Healthy Chocolate Tart that used my crust recipe from this Dark Chocolate, Coconut & Macadamia Nut Tart and it reminded me of how much I love that crust! It’s made of almond flour, shredded coconut, coconut oil, and a teensy bit of sweetener. It bakes up golden brown and a little crispy, but softens after a few hours of cooling. It’s super delicious, and you won’t care at all that it’s healthy.

This easy recipe is Paleo-friendly, gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan.After making the crust, I piled on some lightly sweetened raspberries on top and added a little bit of crumble. The crumble is repurposed from the crust – I’m not trying to do more work than I need to.

Pop it in the oven for 45 minutes, but after 20 tent it with foil to prevent the crust from getting too brown. Trust me. I forgot and uh, almost burnt this one. Learn from my mistakes. Burnt coconut = no good.

There’s no gluten, dairy, refined sugar, grains, eggs, or guilt in this tart. It’s totally safe for all you Paleo folks too.

My housemates were dubious about this one, but they all told me that even though they weren’t sure they would like it, it was surprisingly delicious and they ate it happily. Even the one who doesn’t like coconut! Win.

And then, if you want, make this raspberry coconut crumble tart a little less healthy and add ice cream. To keep it Paleo, make banana ice cream! Enjoy :)

Ingredients
For the filling
  • 1½ cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons tapioca starch
For the crust
  • 1 cup (4 oz) almond flour
  • ¾ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons (1.5 oz) honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil, solid
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Add raspberries, honey and tapioca starch to a medium bowl and toss until coated. Set the mixture aside while you make the crust.
  3. Add the almond flour, shredded coconut, honey, coconut sugar, baking powder, and salt to a different bowl and whisk until combined. Add the coconut oil and use your fingers to work it in until coarse crumbs form and the mixture holds together when pressed.
  4. Remove a heaping ½ cup of the crumbs for the topping and pour the remaining crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Press the dough evenly into the pan. Pour the raspberry mixture over the crust, making sure the juices stay behind in the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Sprinkle the reserved crust evenly over the top of the berries.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the crust is lightly brown. At around 20 minutes, tent the tart with foil to prevent it from getting too brown. Let cool completely before slicing into wedges and serving.

  2. Rachel, this tart is perfect! I cannot tell you how obsessed I am with your coconut almond crust. It is kind of life changing for me. I swear I like it more than any other crust I’ve eaten, but it’s healthy! I must make this raspberry version right away. It’s going to be too tough to decide which of your desserts to make for Valentine’s Day, might have to make 1 of each : )

    And thank you for linking to my tart!

  27. I barely had filling to fill this tart…are proportions ok?? it was very thin and difficult to serve….is it better in ramequins? however it is very tasty and delisious

    • Hi Angel, is it possible that you used a bigger tart pan than was called for? That could explain why it was thinner. You can always increase the amount of raspberries if you’d like a thicker, more fruity filling. Glad you enjoyed how it tasted!

  28. Do you think I could substitute raspberries with cherries instead?

  29. Beautiful! I love the tartness of raspberries!

  30. Hi Rachel, I can’t have the Tapioca starch. Any ideas what I could substitute this with? Thanks

  31. Love this recipe! I was nervous about using the coconut sugar (because it smelled funny) so I ended up using a few tablespoons of cane sugar. Do you have any suggestions other than the coconut sugar? Aside from that, this was super delicious, easy to make, and my whole family enjoyed it. Nobody knew it was GF & vegan! So cool!

    • Hi Terrie. I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Coconut sugar is my go-to granulated sweetener of choice for Paleo/refined sugar free baked goods. There’s not a great substitute that I’ve found, but it just provides a slight sweetness comparable to brown sugar, and doesn’t leave any weird smells.

  32. Hi love
    I made the tart, but had an issue, it absolutely doenst look like the picture. It all mush up together and doesn’t look like a crumble-as the picture- .. i did follow the recipe as is, what could have i done wrong – fyi, flavor is good

    • Hi Rita, sorry you had trouble! Was it possible the coconut oil was too soft? If the crumble didn’t seem “crumbly”, you can always add a bit more almond flour to reduce the moisture. Hope this helps!
