Fresh Apricot Tart with Oat Almond Crust
Of all the stone fruits, organic apricots are the easiest to turn into luscious desserts like this plant-based Fresh Apricot Tart with Oat Almond Crust. Slice into a tree-ripened apricot and the pit pops out almost without effort, and its jammy flavor is sure to brighten any recipe. And this easy gluten-free summer fruit dessert is no exception! With a wholesome nut and sprouted whole grain oat crust and a simple stovetop filling, this chilled apricot tart looks—and tastes!—like sunshine on your plate.
Raspberry Orange Oat Bars
Loaded with juicy raspberries, organic Sprouted Rolled Oats, and a hint of orange, these vegan Raspberry Oat Orange Bars are bursting with flavor—and perfect for picnics or summer breakfasts on the go! But while there are plenty of recipes where a frozen berry swap is as good as fresh, these wholesome oaty bars only hold up when you make them with fresh raspberries. (And that is all the excuse you will need to pick up a flat of this delicate fruit in the short few weeks it’s in season!)
