Cherry Tarts with Hazelnut Crust

Cherries are in season and they are delicious! But did you know that cherries are a super food that even contains melatonin, an antioxidant that not only helps you sleep, but also helps regulate heart rhythms. They are full of anthocyans, antioxidants that fight cancer and help reduce heart disease. Cherries have anti-inflamitory properties that fight arthritis and also are memory boosters.



For this raw food recipe, I wanted the cherries to be the star so you will notice the filling doesn’t have many ingredients. It tastes like wonderful, fresh, ripe cherries. The tart shells, made with hazelnuts and almonds, compliment the flavor of the cherries. You can also make this raw recipe as a pie or full size tart.

What is your favorite thing to make with cherries? Do you like to just eat them whole or put them in recipes? For another amazing cherry recipe click here: Raw Vegan Cherry Crisp

And if you don’t want purple fingers for the next two days, it pays to invest in a cherry pitter! I like this one:
Norpro Deluxe Cherry Pitter with Suction Base


Use plastic wrap to shape tart shells. Press into the corners to get a good shell formed, pop out and place to dry. I use this pan: Mini Muffin Pan

    Can you give the ratio for a pie? I think it would be easier for us with little free time!

    I just made (and immediately ate) this recipe. My boyfriend and I loved it! I did added a banana and soaked goji berries into the filling. I also only used almonds instead of hazelnuts for the crust. De-lish!
