Strawberry tartlets for afternoon tea @BordBia

Gluten-free Strawberry Tartlets 🍓

For the tart crust – 
300g ground almonds
4 tbsp melted coconut 
4 tbsp maple syrup
Good pinch of sea salt

For the jam – 
300g strawberries
1.5 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup

Fresh Strawberries, washed and sliced, for decoration


Preheat the oven to 180deg celsius. Combine all tart crust ingredients in a bowl, they should resemble fine breadcrumbs but come together into a crumbly dough with a little pressure.

Line a muffin tin with paper cases. I used silicone reusable ones which can easily be purchased online or in a homeware dept, they are better for the environment too. Place a large dessert spoon of the mixture in each case, then use your fingers to push the mixture into the sides of the cases until they stick and resemble a crust. This is a little messy but well worth the effort.Place tartlet cases in the oven for 10-12 mins until they are golden brown. 

In the meantime, take 150g strawberries and place in a blender until they are smooth and frothy. Add the chia seeds and maple syrup and blitz for a further two minutes. Place to one side and allow the jam to thicken until you are ready to serve the tartlets. Prepare the remaining strawberries for decoration.

Remove tart crusts from oven and allow to cool fully before prepping to serve. When ready to serve, fill the cases with jam and place strawberry slices on top. 

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy! x
