Ingredients

Pastry
  • 160 g oat flour or oats
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 60 g cold coconut oil or vegan butter/margarine
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 40 ml cold water fridge cold
Filling
  • 2 nectarines sliced
  • 80 g blueberries
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ lemon zested
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar optional

Instructions

  • If starting with oats, blitz them in a blender to form oat flour. Add to a large mixing bowl with the ground almonds.
  • Add the cold coconut oil or vegan butter/margarine to the bowl and use a knife to cut it into the flour. Now use your fingertips to rub the fat into the flour to form a sticky mix. Stir through the coconut sugar, cinnamon and salt. Pour in the cold water and bring the dough together with a spoon. Shape into a ball and cover in a wrap. Leave to chill in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, de-stone and slice the nectarines. Add to a small bowl with the blueberries, lemon juice, lemon zest, coconut sugar and cornflour. Stir well and leave to one side.
  • Preheat the oven to 170Fan/190*C. Cover a surface with a large piece of baking parchment and place the dough on top. Using a second piece of parchment, carefully roll the dough out between the two sheets to form an oval shape, ½ cm thick.
  • Spoon the fruit mixture (leave the juice in the bowl) into the centre of the dough, leaving a 2cm gap around the edge. Using the bottom sheet of parchment, roll/fold the edges of the dough over the fruit towards the centre – it is best to use the parchment to avoid tears in the pastry and to create a smooth edge.
  • Transfer the baking parchment and the pastry onto an oven-proof tray and bake for 40-50 minutes until golden and crisp.
  • Serve warm or cold with banana ice cream, yoghurt or on its own.
