I hadn’t made an apple tart in such a long time and totally forgot how pretty and delicious it was!
However, you surely know that I love making things a bit ” special”, so this tart couldn’t be the usual apple tart…
That’s why there is a special ingredient in the filling which adds a huge dose of nutrition to it and gives a yummy texture to the whole tart 😉
Don’t be afraid to try it, trust me!
- 1 ¾ cup + 2 tbsps flour (I used spelt + whole wheat)
- 3 tbsps coconut sugar
- A pinch of salt
- ½ tsp vanilla powder
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsps semi melted coconut oil
- ½ cup water
- 1 cup chickpeas
- ½ cup apple sauce
- ¼ cup plantbased milk
- 3 soft dates (I used those : https://palmyradelights.ch/fr/shop/palmyra-cooking-3kg-pitted-4/)
- ¼ tsp vanilla powder
- A bit of hazelnut powder
- 3-4 medium size apples
Start by making the crust (it’s great to prepare it the day before so it can chill in the fridge overnight).
Simply put the flour, the sugar, the cinnamon, the vanilla and the salt in a mixing bowl, “crumble” it with the coconut oil, slowly add the water and stir with your hands until you can form a ball with the it.
Let it chill overnight.
Make the filling by simply blending all the ingredients.
Roll out the crust (not too thick), put it in your prepared pie plate and put some hazelnut/almond meal on it to protect it from the humidity of the filling. (you’ll probably have too much crust, but you can make a tiny tart or some cookies with it ;-))
Heavenly pour the filling on top and dispose your finely chopped apples on the filling. Make sure to entirely cover it! You can sprinkle some cinnamon and coconut sugar on top of them.
Bake at 200c for 25-35min. (simply check that the crust is well baked)
