Blueberry Crisp Tart with Oatmeal Crust (GF, Vegan)

Blueberry Crispy Tart with Oatmeal Crust (Gluten-free, Vegan, & Refined Sugar-Free) | from Bakerita.com #recipe Soo…if you follow me on social media (InstagramTwitterFacebook, if you’re interested!), you might’ve seen me go a little baking-crazy yesterday. It had been a while since I did a crazy weekend of baking, and I took advantage of most of my housemates being gone to make lots of treats to post for you guys!

Baking is my personal form of self-therapy, and spending the whole day baking yesterday just makes me want to do it all over again today! Minus clean-up – that’s no fun.

Let’s talk about the fun stuff now: the baked goods!! The recipe I’m sharing with you first is the last thing I made yesterday, and I adore the way it turned out (don’t worry – all the other recipes are coming soon!). This tart was born out of having waaay too many blueberries in the house. Blueberries in Seattle are like, $3 for 18 oz., so I can never resist buying them at the grocery store!

I needed to do something with all those blueberries, so after a little consult with my housemate Olivia about the best route to go, we decided on a blueberry tart, baked until crispy and bubbling, on an oatmeal crust. A little bit of that crust was repurposed as a crumbly topping, with some pecans for good measure and a little extra crunch.

As I started playing with the ingredients list, I realized this recipe would be super easy to make gluten-free and vegan with a little bit of substituting, and I’m a major fan of almond flour tart crusts (case. in. point.) so I went for it, and hoped no one would notice it was “healthy”. You totally can’t tell. The berries provide enough sweetness in conjunction with the little bit of honey, and the crust browned up so nicely! The almond flour/oatmeal combination is perfect, and I can definitely see this becoming a crust I use again.

It does brown up pretty quickly, so I recommend tenting with foil after about 15-20 minutes when the tart is just a light golden brown. I probably could’ve tented mine even earlier!

This Blueberry Crisp Tart is super versatile, and would be absolutely delicious with raspberries or blackberries…or a combo of all three! This will most definitely be happening again with some other berries this summer.

Take a little inspiration from me, and go have yourself a de-stress bake fest to make this super simple Blueberry Crisp Tart – you will not regret it! :)

Blueberry Crisp Tart with Oat Crust (Gluten Free, Vegan)

Ingredients

    For the filling
  • 1 pint (300 grams or about 2 cups) fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons tapioca starch
  • For the crust
  • 1 cup (4 oz) almond flour
  • 3/4 cup (2 1/2 oz) old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup (3 oz) honey
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil, solid
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add blueberries, honey and tapioca starch to a medium bowl and toss until coated. Set the blueberries aside while you make the crust.
  3. Add the almond flour, oats, honey, baking powder, and salt to a different bowl and whisk until combined. Add the coconut oil and use your fingers to work it in until coarse crumbs form and the mixture holds together when pressed.
  4. Remove a heaping 1/2 cup of the crumbs for the topping and pour the remaining crumbs into the bottom of a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Press the dough evenly into the pan. Pour the blueberries over the crust, making sure the juices stay behind in the bottom of the bowl.
  5. Add the chopped pecans to the remaining crumble and sprinkle evenly over the top of the berries.
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the filling is bubbling and the crust is lightly brown. At around 20 minutes, tent the tart with foil to prevent it from getting too brown. Let cool completely before slicing into wedges and serving.

Notes

This tart gets better with time and will be just as good on day one as day three thus making it a perfect make-ahead dessert. Also, if you don’t have a tart pan, this recipe would work wonderfully as bar cookies. Bake in an 8×8 pan them slice into small square cookie bars.

White Chocolate Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

White Chocolate Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies | Bakerita.com I thought that this cookie would turn out pretty standard and simple tasting. You know, oatmeal cookie with some cinnamon and a bit of white chocolate – nothing revolutionary here. BUT. Somehow, the way the dark brown sugar caramelized, combined with a healthy dose of cinnamon and that sweet white chocolate created something AWESOME.

These cookies taste like a chewy, oatmeal-y cinnamon roll. Not exactly like a cinnamon roll (duh, cookie texture, not bread), but the taste is definitely there. [Read more...]

Peanut butter. Peanut butter. Peanut butter.

It’s all you hear about on this blog. Sorry (but not really…).

Well, you’re hearing about it again! A couple weeks ago the National Peanut Board asked me to do a guest post for them featuring peanuts or peanut butter. Clearly, I jumped on the opportunity and managed to create one of the best cookies I’ve ever made: Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches. [Read more...]

Sunbutter Oatmeal Cookies | Bakerita.com It’s been well-established on this blog that I am extremely fond of peanut butter.

I like to make it myself. I also like to stir it into oatmeal for breakfast with some chocolate and call it healthy.

It also ends up in a lot of awesome bar recipes.

Sunbutter Oatmeal Cookies | Bakerita.com However, I never put much thought into all those poor, innocent souls who are allergic to peanut butter. I can’t imagine such a tragedy, but did you know that approximately three million people in the U.S. are allergic to peanuts? (Yes, I did just look that up on Wikipedia.)

Now, those people, well, I couldn’t do it. Peanut butter is easily one of my most used kitchen ingredients, next to chocolate. Usually together. [Read more...]

There’s something inherently comforting about food blogging, and the food blogging community. It’s a group of people – all completely dissimilar, coming from every country, background, religion, race, financial background – who all share one simple thing: the love of food.

While most Americans share that same love of food, food bloggers are the people who love to share that love. They are the people who want to share the flavors of their families, and their backgrounds, and the recipes they create in their kitchens, with the world. We, food bloggers, are some of the few people who will make our families suffer for a half hour as the tantalizing dish we made is ready to eat – but we need to photograph it to get the perfect picture to share with our readers. It’s a labor, but it’s also a labor of love, and with food blogging, if you don’t love what you do – it shows. [Read more...]

Why is it that family recipes just taste better than any others?

I think it’s the associations we make. It’s not just the fact that those bars are absolutely delicious, it’s that they’re served at Christmas, where everyone is happy and loving and having fun.

We associate our family recipes with good times, and that just makes them taste so much better. [Read more...]
