Caramel Apple Cream Tarts—Raw, Vegan, Paleo, Gluten-Free, and Refined Sugar-Free


These tarts are show-stoppers—they’re perfect for entertaining, and you have the option of making the two-bite minitarts or the 4″ tarts. But at the same time, don’t kid yourself. These are easier to make than you might think, and the ingredients are rather simple!

      


Crust

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup raw almonds
  • ¾ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup raisins or pitted dates
  • 1–2 tsp. water


Instructions

In a processor, finely grind the almonds and coconut. Add the raisins/dates, and process until they’re ground. Add the water, starting with 1 teaspoon. The mixture should be moist and hold together when pressed. Press into 14–16 mini silicone muffin cups (about 1 tablespoon crust each) or four 4″ tart pans with removable bottoms.
 

Apple Cream Filling

Ingredients

  • 1 cup peeled, diced apple
  • 3 tbsp. melted coconut butter
  • 3 tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. lemon juice

Instructions

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Pour into the crusts and place into the fridge for at least 8 hours to firm up.


Caramel Apples

Ingredients

  • 1½–2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • ½ large apple, peeled and diced small
  • Optional: ½ tbsp. lucuma powder

Instructions

Whisk the syrup, almond butter, and coconut oil together until smooth. Stir in the apples. Spoon over the chilled filling.
