Honeyed Fruit Tart with Spelt Crust

Serves 8.


    Honeyed Fruit Tart with Spelt Crust

    A flavourful whole grain crust is enhanced with olive oil and coconut, contrasting perfectly with a creamy yogurt and berry filling. It’s all drizzled with honey (buy a local variety, if you can) for a healthier take on pie.


    Tip: Adding a spoonful of cocoa to both the crust and yogurt filling is an ideal switch-up for the chocolate lover.
