Mini Blueberry Tart

Tarts are just wonderful. They´re lovely as dessert when you got dinner guests or just want to eat an extra nice dessert by yourself! It´s so fun to make these small tarts, and they honestly taste as good as they look. As we all know blueberries are rich in antioxidants, so this tart is actually good for you! As well, they hardly contains sugar as in all of the other tarts we usually eat. I like using half the flour quantity spelt flour and the other half oat flour, to get the extra fibers, but if you are a gluten allergic you should probably skip spelt, and instead use buckwheat flour of a similar flour that bind the batter well. If you haven´t made mimi tarts before you truly should try to make these!

Mini Blueberry Tart
Makes 10 mini tarts

125g plant based butter
125g spelt flour
125g oat flour
1 dl almond milk

2 cups frozen blueberries
2 tbsps oat flour
2 tbsps cane sugar
2 tbsps lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 390°F. Have the butter into a mixing bowl and mash it with your hands. Add the flour and keep mixing and mashing it. Pour in the almond milk a little at a time and give it a final mix. Now you should have a nice and firm dough that is easy to work with. Roll it into a ball and place it on a worktop. Sprinkle over some oat flour so that it doesn´t stick onto the worktop, and with a rolling pin, roll the dough into a large, thin dough. Prepare ten large muffin moulds on a baking tray. Cut out ten circles using a cup that is a bit larger than the muffin moulds you are using. Place the dough circles on top of the moulds and push the dough down and against the edges of the muffin moulds. Do this on all ten, and place the baking tray in the oven. Let them cook in the oven for 20 minutes, and then take them out. Prepare the filling by combining all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and distribute the filling evenly on all of the tart crusts. Place them in the oven for another 35 minutes, and let them cool a bit before serving. When you serve, you could drizzle over some powdered sugar from a health store and enjoy! These lovely tarts will keep good in room temperature for about four days.
