Mini apricot coconut tartlets

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. Vita Coco coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla bean paste
  • 3 x 10cm non stick tartlet tins
  • ½ cup Vita Coco coconut milk
  • 2-3 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 ½ ripe apricots
  • ½ tbsp cornstarch
  • ½ tsp. agar powder

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180c
  • Put the oats, chopped walnuts, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla into a mixing bowl and combine.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the tartlet tins (bottom and sides) and put in the oven to bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Once golden, remove the tins from the oven and transfer onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before removing from the tins.
Method For the Filling
  • Put the milk and apricots into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a small saucepan along with the maple syrup. 
  • Place over medium heat and once the mixture starts to warm add in the cornstarch and agar powder. 
  • Once the mixture starts to bring to the boil, keep whisking for a minute or two, until the mixture starts to thicken. 
  • Remove from the heat and fill each of the tarts. Refrigerate and allow to set.
  • If you have any excess filling, pour into a ramekin and allow to set.
  • Serve the tarts with coconut yoghurt, fresh apricot and extra walnuts if desired.
