Grain Free Blueberry Tart (Vegan)

Grain Free Blueberry Tart.  Today we got our co-op basket.  There was an optional add-on for blueberries so I took it.  12 pints of organic blueberries!

We gave some to my in-laws and we took the rest.  My older daughter just LOVES blueberries.  She ate a whole pint in one sitting.  I can’t say I blame her!

They are so good!  I have been wanting to do a fruit tart recipe for a while now, so I thought I would make a grain free blueberry tart. I can tell you my family was not disappointed.

It was awesome!  This tart is not only grain and gluten free, it’s also vegan! 🙂  It’s super easy to make too.

Prep Time 20 min Cook Time 10 min Serves 12 slices     adjust servings

A no fuss dessert that looks fancy, but is really easy to make!



  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In the food processor, grind the almonds.
  3. Once they are ground to a course consistency, add in the dates, coconut oil and a small amount of water.
  4. Pulse until a dough forms.
  5. Press the mixture into a greased tart pan.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  7. While it is baking, drain the soaked cashews and throw them in the blender with the maple syrup and vanilla. You can probably use a food processor for this as well.
  8. Blend up the cashews until they are a smooth cream. You may need to add a small amount of water or milk to get it smooth. You will want a cream-like consistency.
  9. Spread the cashew cream over the tart crust and top with blueberries.


Recipe Notes

I would imagine this would keep in the fridge for a week at least. If you can get it to last that long! Enjoy!

  1. I love this recipe and so easy! I'm sharing with my parents who have had to go wheat free and I'm definitely making this for us to have at home ourselves! Lovely photo.
    1. Ground vanilla bean is a powdered form of pure vanilla bean. I love the ground vanilla beans. I linked them in the post. Pure vanilla extract should work as well.
  2. This looks absolutely delicious. I just scored a few cartons of organic blueberries on sale and am going to have to try this! Thank you!!
  3. Do you get your dates at sprouts? I just got 3 pints of organic blueberries at Whole Foods today b/c they were on sale and thought about making this :)
  4. I just bought a case of fresh organic blueberries. I'm looking forward to making the tart this week. Thank you for sharing this recipe and celebrating my birthday during our Community Party. I've loved all the recipes you've shared with us. I hope you'll join us again Friday. Nicky
      1. Hey Bonnie, did you try only soaking 4hrs? If so how did it turn out? Just wondering, I have had this recipe on the brain all morning while out picking blueberrys and am in the same boat, really want it tonight!!! If you dont mind letting me know? Thanks.
        1. I think as long as they soak at least 4-6 hours, they might be okay. If you try it, let me know how it comes out.
  5. Hi! I was wondering the taste difference in the custard between this and the strawberry one. I've never had coconut manna, but was thinking that would have a sweeter taste vs just the Cashews for the bulk of the custard ingredients.
  6. Oh my, cant wait to try this. Live here in Alabama, and in the midst of our blueberry season, well, lets just say I have 80lbs in the freezer!!! This looks like a must try!!!
  7. Do you know the calorie count on this? It sounds wonderful, but i'm doing weight watchers and want to be able to count points.
  8. Loved the idea until I got to the ingredients... I am unable to eat any kind of nuts or seeds. Have a different option for the crust?
  9. Wow! This looks and sounds amazing! Can't wait to try it! Has anyone ever substituted frozen blueberries instead of fresh?
  10. I'm planning to make this tomorrow, but I don't have any ground vanilla on hand. Can I buy dried beans and use my blender to grind them along with the cashews? If so, how many beans should I use?
    1. You can use vanilla extract if you want. If you want to buy the beans, you can throw one in the blender when you are making the cashew cream.
  11. This looks so good! Blueberries are one of my favourite foods and I love how easily this could be adapted for other fruits as well. Great photography too by the way :) x
