Whether it’s the fall or not, vegan apple tart is always a good idea. This tart is a wonderful way to use sour apples and is fairly healthy as well! The base of the tart is made from whole spelt flour, which is a very old variety of wheat that has a mild, slightly nutty and sweet flavor. The caramel layer of this dessert is made from simply from dates, water, and a sprinkle of salt.

Caramel Apple Spelt Tart [Vegan]


Cooking Time




For the Base:

  • 1 cup whole spelt flour (or whole wheat flour)
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar or maple syrup
  • Healthy pinch of Himalayan (or sea) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Coconut oil, for greasing the pan

For the Caramel Layer:

  • 7 gooey dates (soak them for few hours if they’re dried)
  • 3 tablespoons of water (or more if your dates are not that soft)
  • Pinch of Himalayan (or sea) salt

For the Toppings:

  • One large sour apple
  • Few fresh rowan berries (or other sour berries)
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 360°F. In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients for the dough and then add the milk. Stir well. Use coconut oil to grease a 6 1/2-inch cake pan. Pour the dough into the pan and set aside while you prepare the caramel layer.
  2. To make the date caramel, blend the dates, water, and salt in a blender until smooth. Using the fork, swirl the caramel into the top of the dough.
  3. Peel the apple and cut it into half-moon shaped pieces. Put the apple pieces on the dough – fill in the cake form circle by circle starting from the edge and moving to the middle.
  4. Top the tart with cinnamon and fresh rowan berries. Place into the oven and bake for about 35 minutes.
