Plum Tart Recipe

This plum tart is the perfect dessert for plum season! Wonderful served with tea or coffee.

Some desserts, even clean ones, are all about indulgence. During the warmer, plum-friendly months, we tend to enjoy friends, family and good times. Which is exactly as it should be!

Clean Eating Plum Tart

But relaxing with friends doesn’t mean you have to feed your body any garbage. In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the good stuff…. the CLEAN stuff…. actually tastes better than the garbage!

Case in point… today’s recipe. Oh ya… today’s recipe is one for the books. And the good news is that the fat in this is healthy fat because it comes from nuts, not a processed jar of who-knows-what. I’ll be the first to say that this definitely qualifies as a treat, but it also won’t sit in your stomach like a ton of bricks.

This has become one of my all time favorite dessert recipes and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as my family and I have.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 16 servings
Calories: 243kcal



  • 3 cups plums (deseeded and sliced for measuring)
  • 1 tbsp. molasses
  • 3 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch (or arrowroot powder)


  • 1 lb. raw cashews
  • 10 large medjool dates
  • ¼ cup honey (or maple syrup)


  • Prep: Using a tart pan with a removable bottom, wrap a piece of parchment around the removable bottom and set it back in the ring. It may bunch a little on the bottom, that's okay as long as it doesn't lift the entire bottom piece up out of the ring. If it does, cut it enough so that it no longer does that.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Blend the crust ingredients in a food processor until you have a lump of "dough".
  • Press it into torte pan with your fingers. Work it around the pan until you have even coverage, include up onto the sides.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix the filing ingredients and then pour into the crust.
  • Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until everything is cooked through and the crust is somewhat brown.

    Laureljones – Yes, tapioca starch or flour works great.

    Riverbritts – No, I haven’t. Sorry! But you can always experiment…

  3. This looks fantastic. Even though it’s weird, plums are probably my favorite fruit. And I love the sound of that crust!

      Elly – The torte is weird, or the fact that plums are your favorite fruit? Haha!! I don’t mind my torte being weird. Just wanted to clarify. Hope you enjoy it!

  4. What could I use if I don’t have a torte pan? I have springform and pie pans.

      Anything with a removable bottom will work. Enjoy!
