These vegan fruit tarts are made with either fresh nectarine or peaches, vegan puff pastry, roasted and chopped hazelnuts, and maple syrup.

What I love most about this recipe is:

  • It’s so quick to make
  • Even baking beginners manage to prepare it
  • Baked stone fruits are super moist (don’t like dry desserts)
  • Nectarine & Peaches have such a wonderful sweet aroma
  • Can be prepared up to a few hours in advance

Vegan Mini Fruit Tarts

The advantage of making mini fruit tarts, instead of a large one, is that you don’t need to cut it before serving and everybody can quickly eat them by using their hands. This is especially practical if you are looking for a nectarine dessert which you can take with you in the park, to parties, or on a family hiking trip.

A while ago I took them with me when we were heading for a little swim in the river where I live. Everyone loved how easy those mini fruit tarts are to eat. Also, everybody enjoyed how delicious they are!

The sweet taste of the stone fruit goes so well with crispy baked puff pastry.

Plus, when using ripe fruits, they are already so sweet that you don’t need to add a lot of sugar to this dessert recipe. Drizzle them with only a tablespoon of maple syrup and everybody is happy. Want to make them sugar-free? Leave out the maple syrup!

Nectarine & Peach Puff Pastry Tart Recipe

Ingredients you need:

  • Preheat the oven to 390°F/ 200°C.
