Passion fruit, one of the richest fruits on the planet, exotic, tasty, refreshing, citrusy, and definitely very underrated. It is incredible how little popular passion fruit is in recipes, at least here in Uruguay, despite being a fruit that is widely harvested in Brazil, a few km from here.
These tarts make the most of passion fruit. If you like citrus flavors, this recipe is for you. The passion fruit is the total star of this recipe, it really shines, not like it can happen in other recipes where the passion fruit is just a sauce. In this case, the passion fruit is the main ingredient of the filling. It is made from 5 super simple ingredients, without processed products, naturally sweetened, but it doesn’t lose the natural acidity of the passion fruit, it is simply delicious.
The recipe consists of 2 simple steps. Make the passion fruit curd, which is made in a few minutes, thickening the passion fruit pulp (it can be concentrated pulp or use it fresh directly from the fruits) which is thickened thanks to the eggs and coconut oil in a process similar to lemon pie filling. And on the other hand, the oat crusts for the tarts, which are very, very, VERY tasty by itself, the oat bases are delicious, and combined with the passion fruit cream they become a flavor bomb!
Like most of my recipes, this one is very easy to make, healthy, without refined products, it’s quick, and perfect for a snack. This one is also very summery, and light, ENJOY!
