Holiday Recipe: Apple Cranberry Lavender Tart


Apples and cranberries are a delightful combination, and adding organic culinary lavender flowers makes them even more wonderful. This is a vegan and gluten-free tart recipe. I recently discovered substituting butter with olive oil makes my recipes even better.  

Ingredients (all organic):
  1. 3 medium apples (washed, peeled & chopped)
  2. 1/2 cup fresh/frozen/raw cranberries
  3. 1 Tsp. Meyer lemon zest
  4. 1/3 cup honey
  5. 1 /2 Tsp. lavender flowers
  6. cup toasted slivered almonds
  7. 1 1/2 cup instant oats 
Directions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees
  2. Sauté apples with olive oil (2 Tbsp.) on medium heat for 5 minutes, add cranberries, honey and Meyer lemon zest. Stir gently and put the mixture aside.
  3. Process half of the almond in a food processor until coarsely chopped, add the oats, and process for another minute, transfer to a bowl, add olive oil and mix with hands.
  4. Place the mixture in a tart shell and press it down to semi-firm
  5. Spread the apples and cranberry mixture over the tart, sprinkle the rest of the almonds and lavender flowers.
  6. Bake 20-25 minutes. Remove to cooling rack and let it cool for 30 minutes before serving.
  7. Enjoy it with a cup of tea or coffee and a scoop of vanilla gelato or just by itself.
Happy Baking!
