Vegan Apple & Oat Tartlets + Giveaway

Vegan_apple_tartlets_01

A while back we were asked to come up with a recipe that could illustrate the different functions of an immersion blender and food processor. Considering that we use ours everyday to blend soups, making pesto and mixing date truffles, you could say that we are somewhat experienced on the subject. After some twisting and turning we decided to make an apple tartlet. Our flour free version is made on oats, sunflower seeds and dates. Topped with toasted nut butter, beautifully arranged thin apple slices and a touch of cinnamon. It’s vegan. Gluten free. Delicious. And oh so simple. Hit your local market, load up on apples, oats and seeds – and you’ll have friends and family beaming from ear to ear. Recipe at the bottom of this post.

Electrolux used our recipe for their video campaign Now you’re cooking, which basically is a marketing event for the Ultramix Pro. All of the videos in that series are actually really beautifully done. It was fun to see how they interpreted our recipe. All the photos in this post are our own, but the video is entirely produced by Electrolux.

Vegan (and G-F) Apple & Oat Tartlets
Makes 4 tartlets

Crust
½ cup gluten free rolled oats
½ cup raw sunflower seeds
8 fresh soft dates, pitted
2 tbsp coconut oil, room temperature
a pinch of salt

Filling
4 tbsp almond butter

Topping

3 small red apples
½ lemon, juice
1 tbsp maple syrup or runny honey
1 tbsp cold pressed olive oil
2 tsp ground cinnamon

Serve with
Organic vanilla ice cream (or vegan alternative)

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F.
2. Place rolled oats and seeds in a food processor and grind on high speed for about 30 seconds or until you get a crumbly oat & sunflower flour.
3. Add pitted dates, coconut oil and salt and blend for another 30 seconds until the mixture comes together to a sticky and crumbly mixture.
4. Grease four 4-inch / 10 cm tartlet pans with coconut oil. Divide the mixture evenly in the pans and use your finger to flatten it out on the bottom. It should be quite compact. Pre-bake the crust for about 10 minutes.
5. Meanwhile prepare the apples by dividing them in half and removing the core. Mount the thin slice blade on the food processor, and use it to slice the apples halves into thin wedges. Remove the lid and squeeze some lemon over the apple wedges to prevent them from turning brown.
6. Add 1 tbsp almond butter on each crust, then arrange the thin apple wedges in a circular shape on top. Tuck in the last piece under the first so it forms a seamless circle. Brush with maple syrup and olive oil and dust cinnamon on top.
7. Place the tartlets in the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the apples are golden on top. Let cool slightly before serving.
8. Serve as they are or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, nice both ways.

    My name is Line, and I'm from Odense, DK. My all time favorite is the seven minute choko-almond truffles. I make them for christmas, and whenever I need some healthy sweets. Thank you for sharing your brilliance.

    I love the video and will animate my little daugther to try the recipe with me tomorrow...Yummie! My favorite recipe so far is beetroot soup :-) We are based in Berlin, Germany.

    I love everything I see you do and I am excited about your new book! I haven't tried anything yet, but am looking forward to doing so soon. I want to make your Clementine vanilla bean marmalade and Rosemary Almond Meal Bisquits a la Roost. My name is LeeAnn and I am from Washington, USA

    Good evening! I'm Malin from Malmö, southern Sweden. My favourite recipe from your blog is the pomelo salad served with the Tom Kha tofu. It's impossible to separate them, they fit so incredibly well together. But still, if I have to pick one it's the pomelo salad, so fresh and juicy! Cheers!
  • I'm Annette from the UK via Australia :) I feel like I understand your recipes so much more now living in Europe! The flavours just seem to match more. But hands down my favourite recipe is the World's Greatest Vegetable Lasagna - it really is the best lasagna I've ever eaten and nothing else compares. It takes a lot of time and work but I love to cook it on a sunny Sunday afternoon, with the sunshine streaming through the windows (this was obviously back in Australia haha), some nice music on and just relax, enjoying the luxury of having several hours to prepare a truly delicious meal.
  • Leslie
    I love your blog! My favorite recipe is your hemp protein bars. I made them a couple of years ago with a friend, just before she drove from my house in Chicago to hers in Columbus. The bars are perfect road-trip food. I'm from Detroit, Michigan but am currently living in Dublin, Ireland. Keep those recipes coming!
  • Roasted Butternut and Coconut Soup! After a cooking class demystified the many kinds of squash available, I became a squash lover for it's taste, seasonality and affordability. And add coconut into the mix...heaven! Christine (from London, Ontario, Canada)
  • Dear! My name is Janneke Verhoeven, a designer from The Netherlands. I've been a silent follower of your blog, nevertheless a big fan! I tried lots of recipes, so it's quit hard to choose a favourite. But a sign must be that 've made this one so many times, so my ~ ~ ~ favourite ~ ~ ~ favourite ~ ~ ~ favourite recipe must be your beetroosh dip! (And Beetroot soup with horseradish!, Oh well I might be in my beetroot fase...) Thanks for the change in my kitchen!

    Wow, what a great initiative! I became a vegetarian quite recently, only a few months ago, and discovered your blog in search for healthy vegetarian recipes. Quite soon it became my favorite blog. I admire your passion for healthy yummy recipes and all the love you have for cooking and of course for each other. My favorite recipe is "Yoga Pot", both because I love to do yoga and have a healthy meal that energizes me after my classes, and because it's oh so yummy and super duper healthy. Moreover, when you cook this recipe you get a lot of food. By cooking some bulgur next to it, and some natural yoghurt with a bit of mint on, we get 8-9 portions out of it. We are only two at our home and I am a student, so you can imagine how amazing it is for me.As I mentioned earlier I am a new vegetarian and a student, which means I am actually in need of a mixer but can't afford it at the moment. So I thought why not give it a shot. I live in Hägersten, Stockholm but I write in english since I moved to Sweden only 4 years ago (even if I can speak swedish, english is much easier). Oh, and by the way, it is totally irrelevant but Elsa's clothes are always super cool&cute. Where do you buy them? In case I have a kid some day... =)

    I'm originally from California but am living in France. My favorite recipe is the Summer Berry Cake, but I only just recently discovered your website and can't wait to try out your other recipes!
  • Helena
    My name is Helena Bleken Østergaard, and I'm from Copenhagen. My favorite recipe from the blog right now would be the Bean Chili with Walnuts & Dark Chocolate, since it's so rich and flavorful, and I really need that kind of healthy and warming comfortfood when there's still snow in March!! But it's so hard to choose, I really also love the Creamy Broccoli Soup and the Choko-Almond truffles.. It's really hard to choose one! :)

    It's almost to close to call, but I looooooove the frozen pink cheesecake, that has to be my favourite. And for a "regular-cheesecake"-nut, that's saying something. In general, i'm not very good at following recipes or other kinds of cooking instructions, i just can't resist improvising, but i very much turn to this lovely, colourful blog for inspiration. Thanks a million, i always find something to make my mouth water here :) Rikke from Denmark

    This is a tough question . . . I love the apple & oat biscuits and the portobello & peach burger, but today's recipe looks like it is going to rank high on the list. Thanks for sharing the recipe and the opportunity to win! I'm from Georgia, the peach state.
