It's strawberry season here in the Bay Area and farmer's markets are full of fresh, juicy organic strawberries. Some of my best recipe inspiration comes from seeing what fresh produce is in season.
Of course, if you buy enough fresh strawberries, you can make these Gluten Free Strawberry Oat Bars too!
Going to the farmer's market is a special trip I make every Sunday morning. More specifically, it is ME time...quiet time to enjoy the morning while my teens sleep away half of their day. Is there a special time that you cherish just for yourself?
Our Campbell farmer's market is one of the best in the area because not only does it have tons of fresh organic produce, but there are several delicious gluten free food vendors there as well.
Each week it is a challenge to decide which booth to eat at. The first two vendors are 100% gluten free and the other vendors are so savvy to how to handle gluten free. All are 100% delicious!
I am totally digressing from my fresh strawberries. When strawberries are in season, they are big, juicy, and sweet. I can't wait to make this no-bake strawberry tarts recipe.
Now I have a three-pack of organic strawberries with the high hopes of using them in a few recipes. Totally naive on my part. What was I thinking to bring such a tempting treat home? Once my kids saw these strawberries, I was lucky to grab a small handful of strawberries to make these tarts with 🙂
These tarts are raw and because there is no baking involved, they are so quick and easy to make. I press out the crust and chill it a little bit before adding the filling.
Once the filling is spread out, add the strawberries and drizzle with some honey to sweeten. Nuts are also great, but those are totally optional :-). I am drooling just thinking about these tarts and how they taste!
Can you use other fruits?
If you don't have strawberries on hand, feel free to use any fresh fruit!
Can you make these nut-free?
You can, but in order to make this recipe nut-free, you would need to totally redo the crust recipe. I highly recommend substituting gluten free graham crackers for the almond flour if you.
Can you make them dairy-free?
You can easily make these tarts dairy-free by using only vegan yogurt (omit the ricotta) and butter.
How long will these no-bake tarts last?
If you do not put the filling into the tarts, these tart shells will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator. Adding the filling will make these tarts soggy so add the filling when you are ready to eat them.
