Total Time 25 mins


  • 3 slices pliable gluten-free bread
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil melted butter or vegan butter
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded cheese I use Violife Epic Mature
  • 1/2 apple finely diced
  • 1/3 c finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 green onion finely chopped


  • If using different fillings, see notes below.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°
  • See above for visuals on how to create the tartlet shells.
  • Trim the crust off the bread and save the crusts for bread crumbs. (place in zip top bag or container and freeze)
  • Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread. Roll it top to bottom to shape it closer to a square. It does not need to be perfectly square.
  • Brush both sides with olive oil or melted butter (vegan if you prefer).
  • Cut it into four squares.
  • Press the squares into a mini muffin tin, molding it to the shape of the tin.
  • First bake empty shells for 7 minutes. Then add the shredded cheese and bake another 4-5 minutes.
  • Top with diced apple, walnuts and green onion.
  • These tartlets can be served hot or cold.


If using fillings that need to bake in the shell:
Bake empty shells for 7 minutes, then add the filling and bake another 4-5 minutes.
If using cold or pre-cooked filling:
Bake the shells for 10 minutes, then fill.
