Ingredients

For the granola crust

For the filling + apple pie topping

  • 1⅓ cups coconut yogurt or other thick yogurt of your choice
  • 1 large apple or 2 smaller apples, peeled, cored, and chopped into ½” cubes
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or apple pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons pecans toasted and chopped
  • ¼ vanilla bean powder or ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325ºF. Prepare four small tart pans by greasing lightly with coconut oil. Set aside.

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut, almonds, pecans, coconut sugar, salt and cinnamon. Add the coconut oil and using a pastry cutter, two forks, or your hands, work the coconut oil into the flour until it comes together into a course meal with no dry flour remaining.
  3. Divide the granola crust evenly between the four prepared tart pans and use a flat-bottomed measuring cup or glass to press the crust evenly along the bottom and up the sides of the pans.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until firm to the touch and browned. Let cool completely. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
  5. When ready to eat, prepare the sautéed apples. In a medium pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the apples, maple syrup, cinnamon, pecans, vanilla bean powder, and salt. Sauté for 6-8 minutes or until apples are slightly softened but still crunchy (or until they’re all soft - whatever your preference is).

  6. Immediately before serving, top each tart with ⅓ cup coconut yogurt. Top with sautéed apples. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

You can either slice the apples, like I did, or used cubed apples. I recommend cubes in the recipe because it's easier to make and to eat that way (and you get more apple chunks), but if you want them to look like mine, go for the slices!
