Dairy FreeVegan

Serves

4 - 5 tarts

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup soaked dates
  • 1/4 cup cocoa/cacao
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 T coconut oil, if it’s too crumbly

Caramel Filling

  • Handful Brazil nuts
  • 2-3 T raw honey/agave
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 7-10 dates, soaked for 30 minutes or so if you can – but don’t dump the water!
  • 3 T almond butter
  • 2 T tahini
  • 2-3 T coconut butter, melted
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • Water as needed (preferably the date water)
  • 1/6 cup or so coconut flakes (doesn’t really matter, you be the judge)
  • 2 T chia seeds gelled with water

Preparation

Crust

  1. Process all ingredients until it’s like dough (but a little crumbly). Press it into your favourite tart shells and freeze while you’re making the filling.

Caramel Filling

  1. Process Brazil nuts into fine pieces, add all other ingredients EXCEPT coconut flakes and chia seeds. Process until it has a caramel-y consistency. You may need to add some water or more of the other ingredients. Try it. Your mind should be exploding now. If not, continue tampering until it reaches the mind-blowing stage. Add the coconut flakes and gelled chia.
  2. Spoon this into the frozen tart shell crusts and let it freeze for maybe another 30 minutes. Then carefully take the crust out of the mold, not letting it break! Chill until you need them, and decorate with goji berries or anything else!

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!
