1 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill (for crust)
3/4 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened (for crust)
2 tbsp Swerve Sweetener, granular (or any other sugar substitute with bulk to equal 2 tablespoons of regular sugar; for crust)
3 tbsp Lemon juice (for crust)
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure (for crust)
4 1/2 tbsp Butter, grass fed, unsalted (melted; or ghee, or coconut oil; for crust)
1 pinch Salt (for crust)
1/2 cup Butter, grass fed, unsalted (softened to room temperature; of ghee, or coconut oil; for filling)
1/3 cup Coconut milk (full fat; or almond milk; for filling)
1/3 cup Lemon juice (for filling)
5 tbsp Swerve Sweetener, granular (or any other sugar substitute with bulk to equal 5 tablespoons of regular sugar; for filling)
1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure (for filling)
2 tsp Lemon extract (more or less to taste; for filling)
2 whole lemon(s) Lemon peel (zest) (for filling)
1/4 tsp Salt (for filling)


Make the crust:

  1. Grease 2 mini-muffin pans (twelve cup size).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the crust ingredients and mix well.
  3. Roll into a log on waxed paper. Cut into 24 slices.
  4. Roll each slice into a ball and press into tart pans. It will take about 2 teaspoons of dough per tart.
  5. Chill crusts until ready to fill.


Make the filling:

  1. Place butter or coconut oil in a bowl and beat until fluffy or blend in a food processor.
  2. Add low-carb milk, lemon juice, sweetener, extracts, zest, and salt and beat or blend until mixture is smooth.
  3. Taste and add more lemon juice or sweetener as needed.


Assemble tarts: 

  1. Spoon filling into each crust. Garnish with a sprinkle of lemon zest if desired. Refrigerate until set.
  2. If you have extra filling, serve it as a delicious Lemon Pudding or freeze it in mini-muffin pans or paper cupcake liners to make individual Lemon Fat Bombs.
