For the pastry

Combine the almond flour, cake flour, salt, cinnamon and icing sugar together. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients using your fingertips until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add the bone broth and mix to combine until a pastry forms. Wrap the pastry in plastic wrap and refrigerate.

For the filling

Combine the bone broth, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple cider vinegar and vanilla essence together.

To assemble

Evenly distribute and sprinkle the dried apricots into the 10cm tart tins lined with foil.

Sprinkle and evenly distribute half of the flaked almonds on top of the dried apricots. Arrange the apple slices into the tart tins in a layered fan pattern, ensuring that each tart tin has half an apple.

Sprinkle and evenly distribute the remaining flaked almonds over the apples. Drizzle and evenly distribute the melted peanut butter into the tart tins, over the apples and almonds.

Stir the broth mixture to combine once more and pour and evenly distribute the broth mixture over the apples, ensuring to cover the apples. Divide the pastry into four even balls and roll to fit the tart tins. Place the pastry on top of the filling, tucking the edges into the sides of the tart tin.

Bake the tarts in the Vortex Air Fryer for 25 minutes at 200°C until te pastry is a rich golden brown.

To remove the tarts, place a plate over the tart tin and invert. The tart should slip out of the tart tin easily. Serve with any remaining bone broth mixture in the tart tin if desired.
