Tartlets with grilled figs and blue cheese, low-carb and gluten free

Fig marmalade is a must when I’m having blue cheese. I think it complements the salty, rich and flavorful blue cheese, making it taste even better. In these tartlets the grilled figs do the trick, the figs become softer, sweeter and almost caramelized when grilled, it really brings out all the flavors in the fig.Tartlets with grilled figs and blue cheese, low-carb and gluten free

Difficulty: Easy

3 tablespoons almond flour

Mix all the ingredients in a food processor, process until the dough/batter is well combined.

Use a spoon and divide the dough in 8 dollops onto a parchment paper covered baking tray. Cover with plastic wrap and use a spatula to squeeze them flat and round 3-4 inches (8-10 cm) in diameter. Bake for 10 minutes.
