Hippie Apple Tarts

I had a major sweet tooth today (yah, I know – big surprise) so I went about looking for something to make with ingredients I already had.  My sweet tooth salvation lay within the pages of Hungry Hungry Hippie – a very sassy vegan/lifestyle blog.  Recently Miss Hippie had made Vegan Apple Pie w/ Graham Cracker Crust.  I used the recipe as a guide and did my own thang. 

Crust:

2 c. Graham Cracker Crumbs

3 tbsp oatmeal

2 tbsp applesauce

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 c. Smart Balance, melted

Apple Filling:

One large apple, peeled & diced

Flour, just enough to coat

Sprinkle of brown sugar

sprinkle of cinnamon

I mixed all the ingredients for the crust, and when it was appropriately uniform, I pressed it into muffin cups.  I was hoping to have enough mixture for six.

But I only had enough for four.  That okay – more delicious apple filling per cup!

After adding the apple mixture, I popped it into the oven at 400 for about 25 minutes.  The aroma that filled our small apartment was so heavenly, I didn’t really worry about how these little guys were going to turn out.

Um, they were amazing.  The crust held together but was still soft like a cookie, and the apples and brown sugar added a bit of sweetness.  I will definitely be making these again – maybe with a bit more oatmeal next time to create more dough.  Having leftovers for breakfast this morning – Happy Monday to me…

Have a great week!
