First, make the custard. In a bowl, mix the soy yogurt, malt syrup, almond butter and salt. Whisk until very smooth then refrigerate for about 1 hour.

When ready to make the crust, preheat the oven to 180° C. Stir the flours, salt and vanilla together in a large bowl, then add the olive oil to the dry ingredients and mix with a fork. Add the water little by little, to make a good grainy texture. You might not need all the water indicated in the recipe. As soon as the dough holds together, you don’t need any more water. Knead until you have a smooth dough. Transfer the ball of dough in a flour-dusted bowl and cover the bowl with a damp cloth. Refrigerate for about 1 hour.

When the dough is ready to be rolled, take it and place it on a lightly floured surface. Dust your rolling-pin with flour and roll the dough out to the desired thickness (3-4 mm), then cut out  round disc shapes using a round cookie cutter or  a cup and place the  discs on an oven tray lined with a sheet of parchment paper. Poke a few holes in the  tartlets with a fork to let the steam escape, and transfer the pan into the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes until nicely golden (cooking time varies according to the thickness, as well as the oven), then remove from the oven and let cool.

Once the custard is set and the tartlets are cold, arrange them on a serving plate or tray just before serving. Spoon some custard onto each tartlet, top with the raspberries and blueberries and sprinkle with the powdered sugar. Enjoy.
