These mini tarts make great desserts for those with dietary restrictions. The grain-free cranberry and orange spice tarts are a gluten-free and vegan recipe. From food blogger Beth of Tasty Yummies and featured on the Free People blog, the treat is ideal in winter time, but are so good they can be enjoyed all year.

The mini tart shells are made with almond flour and contain a cashew cream layer that is similar to cream cheese icing. The cranberry and orange spice topping is sweetened with maple syrup (or another natural sweetener if you prefer) and contains spices like ground cloves and freshly grated ginger.

The bites are perfect for the holiday season, especially if you are doing any hosting on Thanksgiving or Christmas.
