Sorry.

I’ve been holding out on you for awhile.

I got these adorable mini cast iron pans a couple of months ago at the San Diego Girl Scouts Urban Campout.They came to the table filled with something yummy.

I think so anyways, but lest you think I ate 6 of them all by myself, the truth is, I ate none of them, because they weren’t gluten-free.

Don’t feel sorry for me though, because my dinner pals gave me their {empty} tart pans so I could take them home and create something delicious for the blog.

Perfect portion control! Fill these Mini Cast Iron Pans up w/ your favorite baked goods and desserts!

Up until now, though, I couldn’t figure out what to bake for you in them.

Then along came this month’s Recipe ReDux theme…

Trimming the Table…

The holiday baking season is upon us. Time to pull out all the stops. Show us the healthy holiday dessert you will be sharing with family and friends this season.

And, I knew EXACTLY what to make–> These absolutely delicious Mini Gluten Free Vegan Pecan Pie Tarts!

Mini Gluten Free Pecan Pie Tarts

I’m not gonna’ lie to you.

Sugar free, they’re not.

But I did cut back on the amount of sugar found in your typical pecan pie, plus they’re gluten free, vegan, and low FODMAP, so {pretty much} anyone can eat them.

Oh, and I added an unusual, super healthy, ingredient, you don’t typically find in pecan pie.

Tofu!

Trust me, they are DELICIOUS!!!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes
Servings: 6 tarts

Ingredients

Tart Crust

  • 1 cup gluten-free flour blend or your favorite gluten free flour blend w/o gums
  • 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
  • 5 tablespoons vegan butter spread melted, plus extra for greasing tart pans {i.e. MELT Organic or Earth Balance Organic}

Pie Filling

  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter spread
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup firm tofu
  • 1 cup pecan pieces or pecan halves

Instructions

  • Make the crust: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F, and grease 6 mini cast iron pans or mini tart pans w/ vegan butter spread. Set pans on a baking dish.
  • Combine flour, confectioners sugar, and melted vegan butter spread in a mixing bowl. Stir with a fork to combine well. Mixture will be slightly crumbly. Spoon crust mixture, divided equally, into pans, and press on bottom and sides with clean hands. Place baking sheet with pans in oven, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool while you make the filling.
  • Make the filling: Turn oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Melt vegan butter spread in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, maple syrup, cornstarch, and salt. Stir well, making sure there are no lumps. Add vanilla extract and stir for an additional minute. Remove pan from heat.
  • Place tofu into a blender along with hot filling mixture, pouring carefully. Place lid on blender and blend on high until tofu and filling are creamy and well combined. Pour mixture back in to sauce pan, and stir in pecans.
  • Spoon pecan filling into tart crust, diving equally. Bake for ~25 minutes, or until firm, checking after 20 minutes to ensure tarts don’t burn.
  • Remove from oven. Cool for 5-10 minutes or until ready to serve.

  1. How did I miss this beautiful idea?! No matter, they are perfect for any time. I love that you used tofu too. It is never spotted but is oh so useful in vegan baking (as is aquafaba of course). As for those pans, a set of six (or at least 4) is on my wish list. SO adorable! And perfect for portion control. really gorgeous, Mrs. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. YOU SO SNEAKY girlfriend (said in a crazy accent!!). I love that you snuck in tofu, genius #simpleswap! I seriously always try to think of you when making recipes bc I feel so sad when you can’t modify something to make it yourself! I LOVE the pans, I mean honestly, HOW CUTE! Sending you and the family big spicy hugs this week- thankful everyday for that cup of coffee three years ago :)!

    1. Ha, ha! I’m trying to imagine your sneaky accent Liz ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs right back to you and your family~so excited to hear how your first Thanksgiving at your house turns out! And, yay for that cup of coffee!!
