Raw Apple and Blueberry tarts

These raw apple and blueberry tarts are perfect for the holiday season or any time of the year. When I was a child, my family and I rarely ate traditional Christmas food. Instead, we often worked at the family restaurant on Christmas Day and served other people traditional Christmas food! But now that I have more autonomy (and actually get the day off), I’m doing things my own way – putting a healthy and vegan twist on traditional… or just yummy treats!

Raw. Gluten Free. Refined Sugar Free. Vegan. 

Makes 6 small tarts

Ingredients Crust:

½ cup almonds
½ cup coconut
½ cup gluten-free rolled oats or buckwheat
½ cup dates, soaked in water for at least 2 hours
1 tbs tahini
Pinch of ground cinnamon, nutmeg and/or cloves
1 tsp moringa or another green vegetable powder (optional)

Ingredients Filling:

1 medium apple, chopped in small cubes
¼ cup blueberries
1 tbs chia seeds
Squeeze of lemon juice, to taste
Pinch of ground cinnamon, nutmeg and/or cloves

Method:

1. Line 6 hand-sized tart tins or cupcake moulds with baking paper.
2. For the crust: Drain the dates. In a food processor, process all of the crust ingredients (except the optional moringa/green powder) until it forms a sticky dough. Press the dough into the bottom and sides of the tart tins to form a crust about ½ cm thick. You will have some mixture left over.
3. For the filling: Using a food processor or hand held whizz stick, puree ½ of the apple. In a medium bowl, combine the puree with the rest of the ingredients. Spoon the apple and blueberry mixture into the tart tins.
4. (Optional) For the tart tops: If you have Moringa powder or another green vegetable powder, mix this with your remaining crust mixture
5. For the tart tops: With your remaining crust mixture, use a rolling pin or hands to flatten into approximately ½ cm thick. Use a cookie cutter or knife to create different shapes. Carefully place the shapes on each of the tarts. Serve immediately or set aside in fridge for up to 3 days.
