What ingredients you need to make these Low-Carb Lavender Blackberry Tarts?

For the shells, you are going to need:

  • almond flour
  • coconut flour (optional, but helps make the shells less fragile)
  • sweetener – I recommend powdered erythritol, I used Swerve Confectioners
  • Xantan gum (optional, but helps with binding the gluten-free flours)
  • butter
  • salt (optional)

How to make these Lavender Blackberry Tarts?

  1. Prepare the shells by combining all ingredients together.

2.Place in a muffin tin, press and bake. Cool.

3.Prepare the filling: Infuse half of the heavy cream, then beat all heavy cream, mascarpone and sweetener until fluffy.

Can you make these blackberry tarts in advance?

You can assemble these tarts no more that 1 day in advance, because they will soften and get soggy.

You can bake the shells up to 3 days in advance and keep in the fridge in an air-tight container.

I recommend that you make the whipped mascarpone filling right before assembly.

How to serve these healthy Blackberry tarts?

These definitely qualify for a tea dessert. Top with fresh blackberries, some mint and serve on a platter.

Since they are mini trays, I suggest that you serve them on a large tray or a platter.

Ingredients

For the shells:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp Xantan gum
  • 1/4 cup powdered erythritol — I used Swerve
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 6 tbsp melted butter

For the whipped mascarpone cream lavender filling:

  • 4 oz mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream — divided
  • 1 tbsp powdered erythritol
  • lavender flower

Instructions

For the shells:

  1. In a bowl combine coconut flour, almond flour, sweetener, salt, Xantan gum and butter. Stir to combine.

  2. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray (you can use coconut oil spray).

    Press about 1 tbsp of the mixture to the bottom of each muffin tin slot, pressing up towards the walls about 1/4 inch.

  3. Bake for 5 minutes, then cool for 15 minutes.

For the lavender whipped mascarpone cream filling:

  1. Heat 1/4 cup of heavy cream, bringing it to a simmer. Add the lavender flowers and cover. Steep for 5-10 minutes, then strain. Chill the heavy cream for 30 minutes.

  2. Add the remaining heavy cream to the lavender infused one. 

  3. Beat mascarpone with sweetener for 30 seconds on low speed.

  4. Slowly, while still beating on medium-low, add the heavy cream to the mascarpone. Beat for 1-2 minutes, until it reaches the texture of thick heavy cream. Do not over beat, because the cream mascarpone will separate.

To assemble:

  1. Very carefully remove each shell from the muffin tin.

  2. Fill with lavender whipped cream. Top with blackberry. Serve.
