Special Notes:

If you are lactose intolerant, feel free to substitute the mascarpone and goat cheese with a non-dairy version such as this cashew cheese spread or a coconut cream based cream cheese here. It will taste just as good.

I also found that it is hard to remove the tarts once they have cooled down from tins, so if you wanted to prepare in cupcake holders that would be easier to remove.  For sweetener, you can use organic xylitol, erythritol, monk fruit or stevia.  If you don’t have hazelnuts you can use pecans or just a little extra almonds or walnuts.

Dr Jockers Comments

This keto mascarpone berry tarts recipe tastes great and is full of healthy, fat burning ingredients.  If you are looking for a healthy, great tasting baked keto treat than try these out!

This recipe combines healthy fats from grass-fed butter and a combination of fiber, protein and healthy fats from almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts.  The cinnamon adds anti-oxidant compounds and helps to improve insulin sensitivity and blood sugar regulation.  We add in the berries for polyphenols which improve digestion, reduce the production of metabolic endotoxemia and overall oxidative stress in the body.

This berry tarts recipe is flavored with your choice of sugar-free sweetener.  My favorite is stevia, which is very low-carb and will not spike your blood sugar.  Instead, it will help keep your insulin under control which will allow your body to burn fat for fuel!
