30 Hot And Sweet Vegan Pie & Tart Recipes

Hot And Sweet Vegan Pie Recipes

These sweet vegan pie and tart recipes are perfect for summer, winter, and special occasions, too!

By Lora O’Brien

Who else has fond memories of visiting a grandparent and being engulfed by the delicious scent of something sweet baking? My gran always baked apple pies, and I still remember the smell to this day: warm, buttery pastry, sweet apples and a delicate hint of cinnamon. The aroma was wonderful enough – don’t even get me started on the taste!

I recently shared my favourite savoury vegan pie recipes, and it got me thinking: why haven’t I done anything about sweet vegan pie recipes? As much as savoury pies have a very secure place in my heart, I can’t neglect my sweet tooth, and pies are one of my favourite ways of enjoying seasonal fruits.

What’s not to love?

Let’s get creative!

There are vegan pie recipes that are minis – let’s say, tarts and pie pockets. Then there are open tarts – I’m especially fond of a good tart tatin! Let’s not forget lattice pies and streusel pies. And then there are the chilled pies: custard, mousse and coconut creams. Yum!

Of course, the basis for the perfect pie is the perfect vegan pie pastry recipe. Once you have that, you can basically fill it with whatever you like. There are some excellent sites with such pastry recipes. For example? Try this basic recipe from the Spruce Eats. Or if you want something healthier, go for this easy vegan granola based crust instead. Then, just imagine what you’d like to fill it up with…

Let’s stop thinking, and start doing! Here are 30 hot and sweet vegan pie recipes for you to try, to matter what the season.
