Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 30minutes
Total Time 40minutes
2 1/4cupsold fashioned rolled oats
3/4cupmaple flakesif you can't find any, the best alternative is coconut sugar or brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C).
Process oats and sea salt in a food processor until it reaches a coarse flour like consistency. Similar to coarse salt at the very least.
Add cubed cold butter to processor and while processing add egg yolk, maple syrup and ice water.
Once well combined, remove from processor and place on a piece of parchment paper, cover the dough with another sheet of parchment paper and roll out into a circle about 1/6" thick.
Peel off the parchment paper from the top and flip the dough over quickly into a parchment-paper-lined 8" or 9" separable tart pan. Press the dough into the sides, then freeze for a few minutes before you remove the excess from the edges and peel off the other sheet of parchment paper.
In the meantime, (peel), core, and slice the apples thinly (1/4" max) and arrange in a circle on the oat crust until all the bottom is covered.
Sprinkle maple flakes evenly on apple slices and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool completely before removing the from the tart pan or the sides of the crust will break.
