Ingredients
  • 2 cups almond meal (finely ground almonds)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 packets stevia
  • 5 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 10 small plums
  • 3 medium peaches
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 packet of stevia
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. For the crust, stir together the almond meal, vanilla, and 2 packets of stevia. Pour in the 5 tablespoons of butter and stir with a fork until it has the texture of granola.
  2. Spray a tart pan with cooking spray to coat the bottom and sides. I used an 11-inch, fluted tart pan with a removable bottom. Spoon in the almond mixture and use your hand to press it evenly over the base of the pan. You want it to be nice and compact so it will hold together when you slice the tart.
  3. Pit the peaches and plums (remove the peach skins if you like--optional) and leave the plums in halves. Cut the peaches into wedges, and arrange in the center of the tart. Surround with the plum halves.
  4. Bake the tart for 20 minutes, then brush the fruit with the remaining tablespoon of melted butter, mixed with the remaining packet of stevia. Bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Let the tart cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
