This gluten-free dairy-free nectarine tart is a wonderful summery French dessert recipe made with juicy nectarines baked on top of a flakey tart. It tastes delicious with a scoop of ice-cream!

Nothing quite says summer like a fruit tart, especially one made with nectarines. Warm, juicy, sweet yet tangy nectarines baked on top of a flakey crisp tart. It is truly delicious and such a summer treat.

I based this recipe off of one that my family makes. I tweaked it to make it gluten free, dairy free, grain free and Paleo. If you love healthy tart recipes, try my apple tart. And if you love summer fruit desserts, try my apricot tart, nectarine peach crisp or my peach cobbler.

Recipe ingredients

Ingredients needed to make nectarine tart.
  • Almond flour– use blanched almond flour because it is more refined in texture and better for baking.
  • Tapioca flour– this helps to give a flaky texture to the crust.
  • Coconut flour– this flour combined with tapioca flour and almond flour gives a great texture to the crust.
  • Plant based organic shortening– I always use the Nutiva organic shortening to make this recipe, which is a mixture of red palm and coconut oils.
  • Coconut sugar– this has a lower glycemic index than other sugars.
  • Egg– this is used to bind the crust together.
  • Sugar-free strawberry jam– I love using St. Dalfour strawberry jam because it is made with simple clean ingredients.
  • Nectarines– make sure they are ripe and fragrant.
  • Cinnamon– Ceylon cinnamon has great flavor.

See recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.

Additions/ Substitutions

  • Instead of coconut sugar, you can use brown sugar. Just note the recipe won’t be Paleo if you use brown sugar.
  • Instead of strawberry jam, you can use peach jam, apricot jam or berry jam.
  • Instead of nectarines, you can use peaches or apricots.
  • You can omit cinnamon if you don’t like it.

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Lightly grease a 9.5 inch round tart pan ( I used a le creuset tart dish and it works great.)
  • Add 3/4 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup tapioca flour, 3 Tbs coconut flour, 1/2 cup non-hydrogenated plant based organic shortening, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp coconut sugar to a food processor. Mix until fully integrated. It should be thick and creamy looking, but with large chunks.
  • Add 2 Tbs of water and 1 egg to the food processor and and mix. It should be thick and creamy looking. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
  • Take the pie crust mixture out of the food processor and roll it into a ball in your hands. Put the ball into the center of the tart dish and push it gently into the pan until it has been evenly distributed. I find that it helps to have slightly wet hands to do this so it doesn’t stick too much. Also, make sure there aren’t holes in the crust when you are pushing it into the dish.
  • Then, poke the pie crust with a fork to make small holes all around the bottom of the pie dish, and push the pie crust into the sides of the tart dish with a fork.
  • Partially bake the tart for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  • Top the tart with your jam of choice. Make sure to evenly distribute it using a spoon.
  • Cover the tart with sliced nectarines. Make sure to overlap the slices while placing them in a circular pattern to cover all of the tart. Save the smaller slices or pieces of nectarines for the center of the tart.
  • Sprinkle the sliced nectarines in the tart with coconut sugar and cinnamon.
  • Bake the tart for 35-45 minutes, until golden.

Notes

  • Instead of coconut sugar, you can use brown sugar. Just note the recipe won’t be Paleo if you use brown sugar.
  • Instead of strawberry jam, you can use peach jam, apricot jam or berry jam.
  • Instead of nectarines, you can use peaches or apricots.
  • You can omit cinnamon if you don’t like it.
