A super easy 4th of July Brownie Tart, that comes together quickly and is naturally gluten-free!

Happy 4th of July to all of you American friends!

I hope you’re spending the day in the most beautiful way, surrounded by your friends and family, loads of laughs, love and obviously delicious food!

I’m on holiday in France right now, but before I took off I wanted to share with you a fantastic and super quick dessert to make at the very last minute. 

This 4th of July brownie tart comes together in less than 45 mins start to finish.

It’s packed with simple awesome ingredients, and it’s fairly on the health-ish side, so you can indulge in your dessert without feeling guilty.

Indeed, there is a secretly delicious ingredient in the brownie mixture that you would never guess. The king of superfoods , avocado!

I’ve used the recipe of my healthy fudgy brownies I’ve posted a few days ago as a base for this patriotic tart. It also happens to be gluten-free and dairy-free ( but be careful the topping contains dairy).

The cannoli frosting on top is a little more indulgent, and made with ricotta cheese, one of the lightest and healthiest cheese in the world.

It’s by far my favorite cream and I use it with very little variations for anything from these cannoli truffles, or this blueberry cheesecake and of course for cannoli.


This cannoli frosting couldn’t be any easier to make. All you need is ricotta cheese, sugar, lemon and orange zest.

Work well with a whisk the ricotta and sugar until creamy, mix in the citrusy zest, et-voila’, dessert is served!

Finish off your brownie tart with fresh blueberries and raspberries to make it totally 4th of July, but you can also use a mix strawberries and blackberries ( which sounds super delicious too!).

This brownie tart is so easy to put together and absolutely no-messy. You can have fun with the kids and ask them to help you out if you like.


This mouthwatering 4th of July brownie tart makes a fantastic, quick patriotic dessert, but it’s perfect to enjoy all-year-long!
