Maple Almond Peach Tart (Vegan, Gluten Free)

September 07, 2014
Peaches are in season in Canada right now so I've been making peach everything. Last week I made a peach cobbler and it tasted great, but turned out kind of a grey colour and got mushy the second day - not blog worthy. I ate it.

This week, I came up with a vegan, gluten free peach tart with an almond filling and almond based crust. It's creamy, nutty, and sweet. The only problem is that I took it out the oven just as unexpected company came over. They ate the whole tart before I could get any good photographs of it, so even though there aren't any great photos, please trust me and make it anyway. It's pretty and tasty. I thought about waiting until next week to post it, with better pictures, but the peach season is so short. This was tested on six people, including an eight year old, and they all loved it. You will too!

This is what it looked like before baking.
Yields one tart

Ingredients:

Crust: Adapted from Oh She Glows
1 cup almond flour
1 1/4 cup oat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup coconut oil
3 tablespoons maple syrup

First off, preheat the oven to 350F. Combine the almond flour, oat flour, and salt. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir until fully combined. You can melt the coconut oil if you'd like. I just used it solid and squished it with my hands until it was mixed. Press the mixture into a greased pie or tart dish, poke some holes in the base with a fork, and stick it in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

Filling:
1 cup almond flour
2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cold coconut butter
1/3-1/2 cup maple syrup, to your taste
2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine the almond flour, arrowroot, salt, coconut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Spoon it into the crust.

Topping:
4-5 peaches, sliced

Uh, slice the peaches, and arrange them on top of the tart however you want. This is the complicated bit. I did two layers arranged in circles.

Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes, or until the peaches are soft and the edges of the crust are slightly browned. Serve with coconut whipped cream or vegan ice cream. This would be good with plums or apricots too.

This is what it looked like after. Ha.
