A Creamy Lemon Tart Recipe with an almond crust shell. This easy lemon tart is made with cream cheese, yogurt, lemon juice and naturally sweetened with maple syrup! It makes the perfect light dessert!



For Almond Crust:

  • 2 cups fine unblanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For Filling:

  • 8 oz softened cream cheese

Almond Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. In a small bowl mix together almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup and ground cinnamon. Mix until all the ingredients are combined and the mixture is somewhat sticky.

  4. Top the tart with slices of fresh lemon and fresh raspberries.
  5. Let chill and set for 1-2 hours. Serve.
