TARTS IN THE RAW!

I have been promising lots of people this recipe for a while now and here it is!!!

RAW VEGAN CHOCOLATE TARTS. BLISS. YUM. NOM NOM.

I have been so busy of late with those ‘Top Secret’ exciting things that are almost ready to be revealed, that my uploading of recipes have been lost down the rabbit hole for a while. Never fear however because last weekend I met the lovely Bridget from New Leaf Nutrition and she spurred me on to getting this all happening. I have been working through a few texture issues with this recipe and my children have been gladly volunteering as guinea pigs and I really feel I have a good mix now.

TART BASE

* 2 cups organic almond meal
* 1 cup organic cacao
* 4 Tbspn organic raw honey
* 4 Tbspn organic cold pressed coconut oil

1. Mix the dry ingredients together thoroughly to ensure an even flavour.
2. Mix in the moist ingredients thoroughly to ensure base has correct consistency.
3. Press mixture into non stick mini muffin tin (24 mini muffins).
4. Place in freezer until filling is ready.

FILLING

* 1 large organic banana
* 1 large organic avocado
* 2 Tbspn organic raw honey
* 1/4 Tspn pink Himalayan salt
* 1/4 cup organic cacao

1. Blend the banana and avocado until silky smooth.
2. Mix in the honey.
3. Mix in the salt, ensuring that it has been finely ground prior to adding.
4. Blend in the cacao, again ensuring that it is thoroughly mixed in.

{ For delicious variations to this filling you can flavour it with either minimal drops of edible oils such as doTerra and get mint, orange etc, or mix in some organic blended strawberries, add some blended dates, add some chopped nuts, or as the picture shows add some edible lavender. If the chocolate taste is too strong you can also either cut down the cacao and replace with equal amount of coconut, or add 2Tbspn of almond/rice milk to the filling mix }

ASSEMBLY

1. Spoon the filling into the bases.
2. Refrigerate.
3. Loosen from muffin pan with a fine knife or skewer and lever out as they are reasonably delicate.
4. Keep refrigerated or freeze.

I no longer concern myself with calories because I find it counterproductive, I am more interested in eating foods that are nourishing for the body (and since this is chocolate I think it is nourishing for the soul too!). However I understand that for some of you it is important, so each little tart is approximately 145 calories.

I do hope you enjoy these little naked tarts (naughty) and all the nourishing goodness they each bring. Please feel free to share with me your flavour variations.

Everybody Be AWESOME!!!
