A Healthy take on a Raspberry Almond Frangipane Tart Recipe! Gluten Free and only natural sugar used!
My mom makes the very best Raspberry Almond Frangipane Tart! She makes it for me very time I go to visit her in Birmingham and it’s absolutely impossible to stop at one slice. Marius loves it too, we always leave Birmingham with very full bellies!!
So we all know when I cook, I challenge myself to make it as healthy as possible. My passion is making healthy recipes that are delicious and full of nutrition and beautifying ingredients. So last Friday when I asked Marius what he would like for dessert over the weekend and he asked for my moms Raspberry Almond Frangipane tart, I was pretty intimidated.
But not one to back down from a challenge I attempted to turn a frangipane tart into a healthy dessert.
I was pretty impressed with the results. Homemade Raspberry Chia Seed Jam and maple syrup make this feel really indulgent. Although this is definitely not the most nutritious and nourishing, it’s butter, gluten and refined sugar free so can be enjoyed without any guilt.
This Healthy Raspberry Almond Frangipane Tart is my favourite healthy dessert recipe so far!
And how did it compare to my moms amazing non healthy Raspberry Almond Frangipane Tart? Well lets just say it was completely gone before the weekend ended!
I really hope you enjoy this healthy raspberry frangipane tart recipe.
