FEED ME MONDAY - Raw Chocolate Tarts

Can I preface this post with a big, fat "I'm sorry" and just get it out of the way? I know I promised a Monday afternoon post but a 'quick trip' to the beach with my love and my pup turned into a long extravaganza (said puppy may or may not have run off into the dunes and not responded when she was called). Anyway I am here now, with a brilliant recipe, so all is well in the world again.

I seldom push anyone to do anything. I use this blog to share and inspire. But today, my darlings, I am pushing. I am pushing BIG time. I recently purchased an incredible 'whole foods' app from the App Store and I absolutely adore everything about it. Belle Gibson, an incredible woman who is naturally healing and THRIVING from a brain tumour, has just released the first ever whole foods app. It honestly has it all - information; inspiration; resources galore and oh my Lordy the recipes are just incredible. So incredible that I'm-a share one with you today!! 'The Whole Pantry' is now available on apple and android and is only $2.99. Incredible value! And also, it's worth mentioning, that I have not been asked to feature this nor do I receive anyyyyy endorsements for doing so, I am genuinely sharing a ridic find with you all.

Raw.Chocolate.Tarts... I know. I had the same reaction when I first stumbled across this humble recipe within the Whole Pantry's dessert collection. I whipped this baby up for an afternoon tea that I would be sharing with some of the gorgeous ladies from the 'in-laws' side. They loved them. I loved them. I snuck a few and shared them with some other girlfriends. They loved them. Overall a healthy, nourishing, satisfying but above all decadent treat!

Raw Chocolate Tarts

Via The Whole Pantry App (available on Apple and Android)
Tart Cases
1 1/2 cup almond meal
1 cup pitted medjool dates
1 1/2 Tbspns melted coconut oil
1 Tbspn cacao powder
Pinch sea salt flakes
 
Chocolate Mousse
2 large, ripe bananas
1/2 ripe avocado (approx 3/4 cup)
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/2 tspn ground cinnamon
1 Tbspn Maple Syrup
1/2 Tbspn water
 
Combine all 'tart case' ingredients in a food processor and process the shiz out of them. You're aiming for a fine, crumbly texture. Next press 2 Tbspns of the mixture into tart cases, ensuring there are no holes and that the cases are evenly covered. Note - I actually self moulded them because I didn't have cases available, time consuming but just as effective. Place in freezer to set. Now onto the chocolate mousse filling. Add all 'mousse' ingredients to a blended and blend for approx 30 seconds or until well combined. Next is the ever important assembly! Pop tart shells out of their cases and place on plate, filling each with mousse. Top with cacao nibs (or my suggestion is also shredded coconut and/or bee pollen). Serve and enjoy!
 
Blessings and chocolate covered smiles x
