Gluten-Free Banana Almond Tart

I want to try more gluten-free options. I made a gluten free cake a couple weeks ago and I never got to take a photo of it because it was inhaled by my friends... So I'll have to make it again (I'm sure no one will complain about this) but I've been trying other new recipes instead.

This is a banana almond tart, no flour, no butter, no oil... It was rather delicious! Perfect with tea or coffee. One side of the pan was slightly overdone so next time I need to remember to rotate the tart pan halfway through the baking time.
And it's a one bowl recipe which is always nice. 

I would also like to put other kinds of nuts in the tart next time, just for the hell of it. I do love the banana/macadamia combo!

For all my gluten-free friends! This one's for you :)
