Healthy Lemon Tart Recipe

I grew up in the Channel Islands and would frequently holiday in France, where Tarte au Citron is a restaurant staple and the taste of Summer itself. This Healthy Lemon Tart recipe has all of the flavour but with no refined flour or sugar, just a whole lotta nutritious goodness.

 

The crust is also super easy to make (you just need a food processor), unlike pastry which can be a right pain if you don’t know what you’re doing.

This tart is summery and brightly flavoured, but with no refined ingredients, low sugar, and high in fibre and nutrients.

Serve with berries and plain Greek yoghurt for some extra vitamins and protein.
