A healthy and indulgent dessert, how is that done? That’s all I think about when creating new recipes. I always strive to make something that will please us and fill our cravings, while nourishing our soul and our body too. With no refined sugar and no animal products, I use whole organic food, with plenty of fruits and nuts that will benefit both our mind and bodies! This Caramelised Apple Tart will do just that 😊
It is safe to say that when it comes to baking The Apple Tart is one of the best dessert to make! First of all, I know NO ONE that does not like it! It is rarely one’s favourite dessert I agree … but have you ever heard anyone say, “I don’t like apple tart!”, that just doesn’t happen right!?
Second, you can find apples of different varieties, colours, and sweetness, which makes this dessert somehow different every time 😊.
And finally, it is SO easy to make! At least this recipe is! The dough does not even need to be rolled out, just grab some pieces and flatten directly onto the pan! Cover with the compote or puree (both names are the same thing) which can easily be prepared the day before and only takes 15 minutes to make! And if you are a bit lazy like I am sometimes 😊 you can decorate your tart by putting just a few apple rings on top, there is absolutely no need to cover the entire tart! In my opinion this is nicer as you now can see the filling!
And this filling … oh my! It is to die for! A delicious apple and date caramelised puree with ZERO SUGAR added! This apple tart may just be one of my favourite dessert after all!
I usually make this crust whenever I am making a sweet tart simply because it is ready in no time but more importantly because it reminds me of a biscuit I use to love when I was a child. It really is super crunchy which contrasts perfectly with the creaminess of the filling.

Place the medjool dates in a bowl of warm water for 20 minutes to let them soften. More time may be required if using another type of dates.
Peel the apples, core and slice them into small chunks.
Place in a large saucepan on a low heat with the water.
Let it simmer for about 15 minutes or until soft.
In the meantime, chop the dates and mix in the food processor with some of the water it rested in until it reaches a thick paste consistency.
Next add the cooked apples into the blender along with all the other ingredients. Blend until smooth.
Spread the puree over the base of your precooked tar and add some sliced apples on top to decorate.
Place in the oven for 15 minutes.
Once baked place the tart onto a cooling rack for 10 minutes, take out of the pan and serve!
*medjool dates are perfect as they are naturally soft and have a lovely sweet caramelised flavour.
