Strawberry Anytime Tart {GF}

Mom has assigned me with the job to make breakfast every morning. It has been difficult for me to get creative, I just kinda make the same old things. Toast and eggs, muffins, pancakes, muffins....
I have finally made something new, delicious and even low on sugar! Not to mention, it's Gluten-free! What's even better is it doesn't even have to be for breakfast, it's so good it's like having desert for breakfast! It could be really good for a little tea party or luncheon.

Strawberry Anytime Tart Recipe

What you need:

Strawberry filling
2 c. fresh strawberries, chopped
1/4 c. sugar
2 tbsp. water

1 tbsp. arrowroot
2 tbsp. water

1 1/4 c. almond flour
1 1/4 c. oat flour
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
5 tbsp. melted butter
2-3 tbsp. water

Serves: 8
  1. Preheat oven to 375* and oil a 9x13 baking pan.
  2. For the filling put the strawberries, sugar and water in a saucepan on medium heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer until strawberries are soft. Mash slightly.
  3. In a small bowl mix the arrowroot and water together. Pore into strawberry filling and stir thoroughly. Pore the combined strawberry filling into a bowl. Set to side and let cool.
  4. For the crust whisk all dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. Make a well, pore in the butter and water. Stir until well combined. The dough will be somewhat crumbly but still should come together in a ball.
  5. Press 2/3 of the dough firmly into your pan. I pressed it up on the sides just a tad, but that is optional. 
  6. Pore all of the strawberry filling over the crust, spread evenly.
  7. Crumble the remaining dough overfilling. You could do a little sprinkle of sugar as well.
  8. Slide in the oven and wait patiently for about 25 minutes or until crust is light brown and filling is bubbly. 
  9. Let cool until the crust comes away from the sides of the pan. Cut into 8 squares.
  10. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and finally, EAT!

I found this recipe here but as always, made it my own with what I had...
This is a pretty flexible recipe. I used frozen strawberries once and would suggest that if you choose to also, that you add only 1-2 TSP. of water instead of 2 TBSP. of water.
It could also be really good to use different berries such as blackberries, blueberries or even raspberries. It could even be good with peaches, apples, pears. If you use a juicier fruit you will probably have to use less water as I said above.
It also works fine if you make it the night before and just store it in the oven or fridge overnight, it would probably be good cold, too.

This was a real hit. I was VERY pleased with it! Mom just got home from the store with four boxes of organic strawberries.... I'm totally making this for breakfast tomorrow! 

If you try this recipe let me know how it works for you and if you tried any other type of fruit what tweaks you might of made.
Hope you like it as much as we do!
