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.

    Hello there delicious foodies, I just love this blog!!! All recipes I tried so far are just jumsy! ^^ I was just wondering which food processor you guys use to make all your goodies. (Such as nut butters and stuff) Because the mixers I tried at home always seem to give up towards the end of the mixing. And maybe this is a good moment for a christmas wishy! :-) Kindest regards, anso

  • Hi! Most of your recipes call for fresh dates. I don't know about Swededn, but here in the US, it's pretty hard to get them fresh. Are they really widely available in Sweden all year? Is there a way to substitute fresh dates with dried? Soaking? or should I just wait till the season comes? Thank you!)
