When you are celiac or have a wheat/gluten intolerance, it’s very challenging to find healthy treats which aren’t loaded with sugar and other unhealthy stuff. So I receive so much joy whenever I can share healthy & easy recipes for baking gluten-free treats and desserts that don’t require a ton of different ingredients. This tart is exactly that! You don’t have to make a separate crust, it only requires a few wholesome ingredients, it’s absolutely delicious and very simple to make. It is a fabulous healthy dessert option that can be made ahead for the holidays. You can make it festive looking by sprinkling some fresh or dried cranberries on top. Make sure to warm it up just prior to serving to enjoy it’s lovely moist texture.

In a mixing bowl combine melted butter, sugar, almond flour, eggs, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt. Mix well with a whisk until smooth. Pour into prepared pan.
Gently arrange apple slices in a circle on top of the batter, pushing them in slightly but making sure the edges are sticking out. Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
