Apricot Almond Tart (Vegan)

Sharon Palmer

This 100% plant-based Apricot Almond Tart is simple and wholesome—the perfect way to celebrate a bounty of fresh apricots in the summer. The almonds in the crust and topping add a sweet, crunchy bite. Fruit-forward desserts like this recipe, which is light in sugar and fat and filled with the naturally sweet, nutritious taste of whole fruits, are a great way to enjoy healthful plant-based eating. Plus, it is pretty enough to impress at your best dinner party! This recipe is also healthy enough you could have it for breakfast!

If apricots are not in season, switch to canned, unsweetened, drained apricots. You can also substitute plums for this recipe (which is so good!). To make this recipe gluten-free, just swap the wheat flours for your favorite gluten-free blend.

Step-by-Step Guide:

Mix flours, almond meal, coconut palm sugar, dairy-free margarine, and chia seed gel together to make the pastry crust.
Pat pastry dough into a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Prick with fork and pre-bake for 8 minutes.
Slice fresh apricots into quarters.
Arrange apricots, with peel side down, in concentric circles around the pastry crust. Drizzle with agave nectar, lemon juice, and vanilla mixture. Top with almonds and bake for 20 minutes.
Slice and enjoy!
