Ingredients

Oil Pastry

  • 200 g wholewheat flour
  • 100 ml rapeseed oil
  • 100 ml water

Chia Jam

  • 250 g soft fruit fresh or frozen
  • 3 tbps orange juice
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 190°C.
  • For the chia jam, add fruit and orange juice to a blender and blitz until smooth.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add the chia seeds and maple syrup (optional).
  • Stir then leave aside for 5-10 minutes.
  • Stir again with a fork then leave aside in the fridge.
  • For the pastry, combined the flour, olive oil and water and mix into a rough dough.
  • Knead briefly until smooth.
  • Cover with clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from fridge then roll out until 5mm thick.
  • Using a circular cookie or pastry cutter, cut into 16 circles.
  • With the leftover pastry cut out heart shapes small enough to fit snugly on top of the tart – either using a knife or heart-shaped cookie cutter and place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Re-roll pastry if necessary.
  • Grease tartlet tins or muffin tins with a little oil then carefully press the pastry rounds into the holes, pressing down the edges to ensure there are no gaps of air between the pastry and the tin.
  • Blind bake cases 10 minutes and bake tops separately for 15 minutes.
  • Transfer jam to cases and bake a further 20 minutes.
  • Add the pastry hearts on top of each tart and allow to cool before serving.

Notes

  • Wholewheat flour can be replaced with gluten-free flour or regular flour. For a grain-free almond flour crust, check out my Vegan Quiche Recipe.
  • Any type of plant milk can be used in this recipe.
  • Any soft fruits can be used. Stone fruits, such as plums, cherries or peaches work quite well.
  • Maple syrup can be replaced with other sweeteners, syrup, sugar or powdered sugar.
  • Olive oil can be used as a substitute for rapeseed oil.
