Almond Butter Tarts

Makes 12 tarts

These almond butter tarts are a perfect recipe to bake on the weekend. The pastry has a hint of sweetness from the dates, while the almond butter inside creates a delicious caramel-like filling. We love them served warm, straight out of the oven, but they will keep for up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge.

For the pastry base

  • 50g ground almonds
  • 210g plain flour
  • 90g Medjool dates (about 5)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 100ml almond milk

For the filling

  • 125g almond butter
  • 125ml maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the topping

  • 45g jumbo oats
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil
  1. Make the pastry base by placing all of the ingredients into a food processor and pulsing until a thick, soft dough comes together. Once the dough has come together, roll into a ball, cover and leave in the fridge to cool for at least an hour or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180c, fan setting. Line a 12 hole muffin tray with melted coconut oil.
  3. Remove the pastry from the fridge and roll out into one large thin strip. Cut 12 circles out of the pastry and place each into one of the muffin tray holes - you may need to re-roll the pastry in order to ensure you have enough. Push all of the pastry circles down to create space for the filling.
  4. Cook for 10 minutes until golden. Once cooked, remove from the oven and leave to cool.
  5. While the bases cook, make the filling by placing the almond butter, sea salt, maple syrup and melted coconut oil into a bowl. Stir until the mixture becomes smooth and thick.
  6. Make the crumble top by placing all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mixing well until a crumble like mixture forms.
  7. Once the tart cases are cooled, spoon equal amounts of the caramel filling into each and top with equal amounts of the topping. Bake for a further 10-15 minutes until golden.
