Here at Lean Green DAD, we like to take recipes from books and other places that we find and make them vegan. We also like to make them quicker than the recipe calls for! As a busy parent, we often do not have time to make a gourmet meal that takes and hour to prepare and then another half hour to cook in the oven. My mom (aka Grandma) is always trying to find something tasty and vegan for our family to eat. I was so proud of her when she brought over these blueberry crumble tarts. You have to give these a try for a sweet after-dinner treat or a solid morning breakfast.

Hope you enjoy this one! It's super easy to make things that you love without using animal-based products. Substituting regular sugar with date sugar and substituting dairy butter with plant-strong butter is one of the easiest things you can do to begin to lean towards a healthier, plant-based lifestyle!
