Spring Berry Lemon Tarts

What better way to celebrate the spring season than with these mini lemon tarts topped with berries and served in a gluten free oat and coconut crust.

These lemon berry tarts have a wonderful gluten-free oat and coconut crust. This crust is so simple to make and presses into the tart tins easily. I toast the oats and coconut first to bring out their flavor. Then place them in a food processor to grind them up into a fine texture. I bring them together and add sweetness by using a light honey and few tablespoons of butter. This crust is simple and delicious.

I can’t think of anything more spring than a creamy lemon dessert topped with colorful berries. The lemon juice and zest lighten this filling up so much by adding a delicious bright flavor. I love seeing the flecks of lemon zest throughout the filling.
