The perfect way to use up festive leftovers or to create a seasonal canape tray.

These easy low-carb Brie Tarts are deliciously creamy and are topped with either sweet Orange Spiced Cranberry Sauce or with nutty pecans and herbs.

The dough is super simple because you will only need mozzarella cheese and almond flour (based on this simplified Fat Head dough).

Fast, simple and delicious. What more could you want over the holidays? Enjoy!

What Can I Use Instead of Almond Flour?

If you can't eat nuts, you can use other options to make the dough nut-free. Simply swap the 2/3 cup (67 g/ 2.4 oz) of almond flour for 6 tablespoons (48 g/ 1.7 oz) of coconut flour OR 8 tablespoons (57 g/2 oz) of flax meal. For a full nut-free recipe, simply skip the pecans and use cranberry sauce only.

If you're using any of these nut-free options, also add about 4 tablespoons (57 g/ 2 oz) of cream cheese (added to the mozzarella before melting). Alternatively, you can even swap the almond flour for an equal amount of ground sunflower seeds (no cream cheese needed).
