Cinnamon Apple Pear Pecan Tartlets

We recently had a pot luck at the gym. As usual, I was very impressed by the delicious dishes our athletes brought to share. It became evident, however, that if you ever wanted someone to cater a paleo dessert party, there was one person to call: Becky B. She wowed us with these cinnamon apple pear pecan tartlets and an apple carrot cake with cashew cream.

Not only were they delicious, they were super cute and professional looking. Every time I make baked goods, it looks like a 3 year old came along and stuck their finger in something, so I was very impressed. Even more impressive: she modified the recipes to make them Whole Life Challenge compliant!

Read on for the tartlet recipe. I’ll be posting the apple carrot cake details later this week!

Apple Tartlet

Cinnamon Apple Pear Pecan Tartlets

Crust

  • 1/3 c. butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. coconut flour
  • cinnamon (to taste)
  • Stevia (to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients and mix together until a dough forms.
  3. Butter tart pans and press mixture into tart molds, covering bottom and sides.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly golden.
  5. Allow to cool and then remove from pans.

Filling

  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 apples (your choice), chopped
  • 1 pear, chopped
  • 1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. pecans
  • cinnamon (to taste)
  • dash of nutmeg
  • Stevia (to taste) – may not even be necessary because some apples are sweet enough
  1. Place all ingredients in a pan over medium/medium-low heat and saute until apples begin to soften (8-10 minutes). Spoon filling into tart crusts and enjoy!

Becky says:

The first time I made these I only used apples/walnuts but thought the pears/pecans might have added a different twist, which is why I added them this time. I’m sure many other fruits, particularly peaches, could be used to alter the taste depending on what you are in the mood for.

Experiment and enjoy!
