Ingredients

Units Scale

For the crust:

  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup unrefined, natural cane sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 5 tbsp melted butter

For the tart filling:

  • 1 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup unrefined, natural cane sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 3/4 cup fresh raspberries, some halved
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat & prep. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch baking dish (I used a round ceramic tart dish).
  2. Make the crust. In a bowl, combine flour, coconut, natural cane sugar, salt, and melted butter. Stir together until mixture is crumbly and no dry spots are left. Press into prepared baking dish in a firm and even layer with edges slightly raised. Bake for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven.
  3. Make the macaroon filling. While crust is baking, prepare the coconut macaroon filling by combining coconut, natural cane sugar, egg whites, and almond extract in a bowl. Stir to combine into a wet, clumpy mixture.
  4. Fill the crust. Evenly distribute the raspberries across the crust, then dollop the coconut macaroon filling over the berries. Smoosh it down and spread it across the crust, getting behind the berries, allowing some of them to peak through for color. Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
  5. Bake the tart. Bake the macaroon tart for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees, or until the coconut peaks of the macaroon filling are golden. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving, though room temperature is recommend.
