Low Carb Apples, Blueberries and Cinnamon Tart

It is my low carb take on my apple cake. 

It will make your taste buds come alive.

It is so easy and quick to make and Oh, So Comforting to Eat!

Your home will smell lovely whilst this is in the oven, total Cinnamon sweetness...

Unlike all the other cakes and tarts I make, I prefer to eat this one cold. It makes the texture a bit more full bodied, if it makes any sense.
If it does not make sense, have a piece when it is hot and then have a cold one later, you will understand what I mean.

Let's get cooking!!!

You will need:

4 eggs
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup quark
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 heap teaspoon of ground cinnamon {or more, if you are a cinnamon lover like me}
1/3 cup xilytol {or sweeten to taste with your preferred sweetener}
8 tablespoons oat bran
2 sliced in 3mm gala apples {skin and all}
1 grated small carrot {coarse grater}
1/2 cup of blueberries

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrades.
Beat the eggs until they are mixed well and add all ingredients to a bowl {except the blueberries} and mix well. Let it sit for 5 minutes and mix again.
Spread some oil on a non stick baking tray {20X20cm on this particular recipe} and remove the excess with kitchen paper.
Pour the mix in and top it up with the blueberries.  Take it to the oven, top shelf.
I baked mine on 200 Celsius for 5 minutes and then turned it down to 180 for 10/15 minutes. Keep checking. It will be ready when you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. Remember all ovens are different, so keep checking.

DO NOT leave it inside the oven after you have turned it off because it carries on cooking and it will dehydrate anything that stays in there. That is a massive mistake people make that makes all foods dry and paper like.

I hope you enjoy this recipe.
