Palm sugar & wholemeal Plum Tarts. So delicious. Vegan

September! Welcome back long awaited lovely autumn. Without doubt my favourite time of the year. It’s time for buckets full of tea again. Time for cozy times indoors. Time for long walks in the stunning forrest & red cheeks. Time for big scarves & jumpers. Time for cinnamon, cardamom, apples, plums, blackcurrant, pumpkin. Brace yourself, it won’t be long before the entire blogging world explodes in a cascade of all shades of orange, when every single blogger starts sharing their favourite pumpkin stuff. And you’re damn right I’m gonna take part in that pumpkin race ;)


September! Hej igen længe ventede skønne efterår. Uden tvivl min yndligstid på året. Igen er det tid til te. Tid til hygge inde. Tid til lange gåture i den smukke skov og røde kinder. Tid til tørklæder og stræktrøjer. Tid til kanel, kardemomme, æbler, blommer, brombær, græskar. Vær beredt, der kan ikke gå lang tid før hele blog-verdenen eksploderer i et farveflor af orange, når alle bloggere finder deres yndlings græskar-opskrifter frem igen. Og du kan bande på jeg nok skal være med i det ræs ;)

But before we start on all lovely the pumpkin stuff, let’s enjoy the sweet and delicious plums of September. A good way of doing that? By enjoying these lovely, super simple plum tarts. And yes of course they have to be enjoyed on the couch with red cheeks from the cold September air, messy hair and big socks. And definitely together with a big mug of steaming hot tea. Autumn cozy-ness at it’s best!

I bought a bag of palm sugar in Indonesia and I’ve been wanting to bake something with the amazing stuff since I returned home. So these lovely small tarts are sweetened with palm sugar – which makes them even more delicious than those sweetened with white or brown sugar (:

Furthermore these are made with an oat- & almond-flour-mix, which makes them both whole meal and slightly lower in carbs. And a bit of butter – or for vegan; use vegan margarine. Enjoy!


Men før vi tager fat på græskarne skal det handle om blommer. Nærmere bestemt disse små skønne, utroligt simple tærter. Perfekte til en kold regnfuld efterårseftermiddag. Og jep, de skal nydes i sofaen med uglet hår og store sokker på – og helt bestemt med en skoldhed kop te i hånden. Efterårshygge, når det er allerbedst!

Jeg købte en pose palme sukker i Indonesien, og siden har jeg virkelig haft lyst til at bage noget med det. Så disse små skønne tærter er sødet med palme sukker – et super lækkert alternativ til normalt hvidt eller brunt sukker. Ja faktisk synes jeg tærterne bliver endnu lækrere, når der bruges palme sukker (:

Derudover er de lavet med havregryns- og mandelmel, hvilket gør dem til fuldkornstærter, der er en smule lavere i carbs. Og en smule smør – eller for en vegansk udgave; brug margarine. Velbekomme!

Plum Tarts

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 3 tarts

Serving Size: 1 small tart


  • 1 cup (240mL) oldfashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup (60mL/ 40g.) almonds
  • 2 tbsp. palm sugar
  • 30 g. butter or margerine (eventually vegan), cubed
  • About 2 tbsp. cold water
  • 3 plums
  • 1 tbsp palm ugar
  • 1/2 tbsp wholewheat flour


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 360°F.
  2. Place oats and almonds in a food processor and pulse until it all turns into fine flour. Then add in the palm sugar and cold cubed butter/ margarine and blend until everything is combined. Add cold water until a dough forms.
  3. Cube the plums - you'll want them quite fine. In a bowl mix the plums, whole wheat flour and the rest of the palm sugar.
  4. Grease the tart moulds - I used coconut oil. Roll out the dough and cut it so it fits into the moulds and press it into the molds. Distribute the plum cubes evenly on the pie crusts.
  5. Cut the rest of the dough into strips and place them over the plums.
  6. Brush ith water and bake the tarts in the oven for approx. 20 minutes.
  7. Serve warm with greek yoghurt or coconut whipped cream.

  1. Gah! I love, love, love this plum tart Josefine! The pictures are phenomenal and it seriously made my mouth water. I plan to get on the pumpkin train too, but I have apple season to get through :-). But, after this, I need to make room for plums because this looks delish! And the new About page? I love it!!! Pinned!

  2. These look so cute! And I think it would be easy to make them gluten free by replacing the whole wheat flour for gluten free flour. Perfect for me. :)

  3. Love your about page!!! I basically feel like you’re talking about me. I hope we can meet someday! I’d love to come visit you :) :) this looks amazing too!

    Yum! I want some! I checked out your about page…very cute, your recipes all make sense now!

  5. I am happy to see your blog back up! These tarts are amazing and I love the new about page. It seems like September took forever to come but it’s here :)

    Hi, Josephine! CAN YOU INVITE ME TO DINNER??? ;) I’m so happy to have found your blog! You seem like such an amazing human being. What impresses me the most is the fact that you’re only one year older than me, and you already have such great cooking + baking + photography skills. I absolutely love cooking (baking, not so much, because I can’t stand the wait it entails) and am also fiercely vegetarian. I’ve made my own recipes and sometimes cook for my family and friends. I love to see the satisfactory look on people’s faces as they eat my food. My favourite thing, obviously, is when they ask for more! That’s when I really feel accomplished. The only problem is, where I live, there are very limited resources. I took a look at your Instagram (I apologise if this sounds creepy – that’s not my intention) and I could see that you seem to have some very nice °restaurants in Copenhagen. So I’d like to ask, is Kobenhavn generally a convenient place for vegetarians/vegans? Are there specifically vegetarian restaurants? It seems that where I live, if I go to restaurants that claim to offer vegetarian meals, often they taste very dull or downright bad. It seems that carnivores tend to think that vegetarian food shouldn’t taste delicious. But it does, if done correctly and cooked with passion, like you do! It would be very kind of you to answer. Until then, you definitely have a new fan. Also, do you take those photos yourself? I’m very impressed with your skills, and your photos get my mouth to water! Many blessings :)

    • Aw, you have no idea how extremely happy that message made me! Thank you SO SO much. You just made my day :-)
      It is incredibly nice to hear from a person who is your age and has the same interests as yourself. I rarely find anyone my age who is as interested in food and health as I am. Gosh, I wish I could meet you in real life ;)
      Well, I definitely think Copenhagen is a good place for vegetarians. I often get some very delicious stuff at restaurants. I have however never had anything vegan anywhere – unfortunately. Also, I’m pesco vegetarian, which means, that I do eat fish. So I don’t always have the totally-vegetarian dishes ;) Here are a lot of good fish dishes as well :D And lot’s of delicious vegetarian stuff!
      May I ask where you are from?

      And I’m so happy you came across my Instagram! Haha, no it doesn’t sound creepy at all ;)
      Yes, I do take all the photos myself. Photography is one of my greatest passions :)
      I’m so honoured by getting this message from you! Thank you so so so much again!
      If you ever create a blog or something similar make sure you make me know!!! Also – do you have an Instagram account? I’d love to see it!

      Best Josefine
