I can’t lie to you, today’s recipe really isn’t that healthy at all. However, if you have non-vegans over these little Vegan Treacle Tarts will open their hearts to try other vegan goodies.
If you are just here looking for a healthy fall dessert, I’d recommend trying a pecan pumpkin shake. In the shake can use the sweetener of your choice and it has no added oil.
If you’re still here, I assuming that you add in a few naughty treats every once in awhile. The crust for the tarts are made with unbleached flour and vegan butter, though you can substitute whole wheat pastry flour and coconut oil if you’d prefer.
I made these for my Harry Potter Halloween dinner and my friend made a vegan trecale tart ice cream to go with it!
What the heck is golden syrup? It’s a sticky sweetener made with cane sugar that’s used mostly in UK recipes. You could try using a light agave nectar, but honestly, it’s the special golden syrup that makes this dessert so wonderful. I recommend trying to find it, even if you buy it online.
I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, so I’m looking forward to the new Magical Beast movie, even if it doesn’t come out until next year. I also just had a Harry Potter dinner party where these delectable little tarts were featured as dessert. You have here treacle tarts mentioned all through the Harry Potter books, and they are even better than I expected.
They are very sweet, in a pecan pie way, but the lemon really lifts them up and makes this seem fancier. I’ll keep making them mini-sized to help me not eat too much at one sitting!
