Preparation

  1. Place all the base ingredients into a food processor and run until a sticky and crumbly mixture is formed. You don’t want to over-process it. Press the mixture in the bottom of small tart pans or silicone moulds.
  2. Process all the filling ingredients until smooth. Spread the filling mixture over the crust and pop the tarts in the refrigerator to set.
  3. Mix pecan pieces with maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla. Spread the mix evenly on a dehydrator sheet (or in the oven on a low temperature) for an hour or two. Sprinkle on top of the tarts and serve.
