Springy lemon blueberry tarts with a crispy gluten-free cereal crust, silky sweet-tart no bake lemon filling, and homemade berry jam swirl. These tartlets are a go-to spring/summer sweet treat – the swirls always impress, but the recipe is SO easy to make!




  • 3 cups (g) crispy rice cereal
  • 2 tbsp (40g) agave or maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp (25g) coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup (65g) Crunchy SunButter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Lemon Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups (180g) raw cashews, soaked 3+ hours
  • 1/3 cup (80g) full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/3 cup (105g) agave or maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp (25g) coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup (80g) lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

Blueberry Jam Swirl

  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot or tapioca starch
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup (140g) frozen blueberries
  • 1 tbsp agave or maple syrup


For the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Grind the cereal in a food processor to fine crumbs.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and process to a moist sandy texture.
  4. Lightly grease 4-5 mini tart pans. Press the crust mixture into the bottom of each and up the sides, packing firmly.
  5. Place on a baking sheet and bake 12-14 minutes. Cool.

For the lemon filling:

  1. Drain and rinse the raw cashews. Blend all the ingredients until VERY smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour into the cooled crusts.

For the blueberry jam swirl:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine all the ingredients over medium heat.
  2. Heat until it begins to bubble. Cook 4-5 minutes stirring continuously until blueberries are soft and the mixture starts to thicken.
  3. Transfer to a jar and allow to cool 10-15 minutes.
  4. Then dollop small spoonfuls of jam on top of the lemon filling, and use a chopstick to swirl.
  5. Refrigerate the tarts overnight. Then enjoy!
