I generally don’t bake because it can be so time-consuming and when you’re not using standard flours or sugars, it can often be expensive, too. So my autoimmune protocol-friendly desserts tend to be fruit, plain and simple. Maybe a smoothie or a bit of banana soft serve. Peaches with just a drizzle of other fruits. Warm pears sprinkled with cinnamon. Mmf. One of my favorite things about my time on the autoimmune protocol, aside from the fact that it made me feel so much better, is that it taught me to really appreciate fruit as a sweet. And how good food could really be as simple as finding a perfectly ripe orange. But then, there are occasions in life that call for something a little more elaborate. For me, February not only includes Valentine’s Day right smack in the middle, but also my anniversary on the 28th. This year is our eleventh! So I took full advantage of the occasion and made these Carob Strawberry Tarts, with shells made from chocolate-like carob and a creamy, fluffy strawberry-coconut filling. For variations, you can use raspberries, blackberries, or cherries instead of strawberries and adjust the amount of honey to taste!
