Remove the prepared crust from the freezer and bake for 20 minutes. When done, remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Meanwhile, prepare the filling. In a small, heavy-bottomed pan combine together sugar, heavy cream, coconut nectar, butter, salt, and vanilla. Bring to a boil over medium heat and gently simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add nuts and pumpkin seeds and mix all well. Continue to cook for another minute.
Remove the mixture from the heat and transfer to chilled crust. Bake for another 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling.
Remove from the oven and cool completely before serving.
This beautiful and elegant dessert is a great idea for this year’s holiday season. A crispy tart is filled with three types of nuts and pumpkin seeds caramelized in pure coconut nectar for the healthiest treat you can possibly imagine. This recipe calls for some almonds, pistachios, and walnuts but any type of nuts you have on hand will be just perfect so feel free to add a handful of peanuts, pecans, or hazelnuts. Not only will it improve the fantastic flavor, but it will also add some valuable nutrients for the entire family! Pumpkin seeds can also be combined with some sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, or flaxseed.
The crust, on the other hand, is a simple combination of four usual ingredients with the perfect amount of super-healthy maca powder for some extra nutrients and flavor.
Furthermore, this relatively simple tart crust is also extremely easy to handle and doesn’t require rolling out – just a couple of firm moves with your hands will transform the dough into a beautiful crust ready to be baked. Enjoy!
