Broken Down



Base

2 x Tablespoons of Goats Butter or 3 tablespoons of Coconut Oil

1 cup of oats

Half a cup or organic brown rice flour

2 x tablespoons of Rapa Dura sugar


Grease a shallow tray or dish. The thickness of base depends on the width of the dish or tin – so a 12” will be thinner than an 8”.

Blend via food processor or by hand the above ingredients together and place into the dish spread and press down to make a smooth surface.

Cook in oven on 160 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.



Special Cream


2 cups of light organic oat milk

1 dessert spoon of finely ground rice flour

Pinch of Xanthan gum

Dash of vanilla essence

2 x dessert spoons of Rapa dura sugar or coconut Palm sugar

Place all ingredients into a small pan bring to boil then simmer for 10 minutes until mixture thickens. Allow to cool.


Option: Add a large spoonful of fine tahini to increase flavour and creaminess.

This also increases calcium content. (Note: This also increase calories) Allow to cool.



Special Syrup – (This tart works without the syrup, therefore reducing sugar content if required)


Add 2 x Tablespoons of Rapa Dura sugar and a large knob of butter to a saucepan and heat until melted, add a little water slowly until mixture becomes syrupy. Raw sugar contains high amounts of minerals, especially iron.


You can adjust these amounts depending on how much syrup you would like, but just a small amount is ideal as it is strong in flavour and – still sugar!



Bringing it all together


Spread the crème onto the cooled base, arrange the berries and pour the syrup over. Enjoy.

This keeps in the Fridge for around 3-4 days.
