Ingredients
  

TART SHELL

  • 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 2/3 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup dates pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup honey maple syrup for vegan recipe
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

STRAWBERRY FILLING

  • 1 cup raw cashews soaked for 1 hour in boiling water
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey maple syrup for vegan
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

CHOCOLATE GLAZE

  • 3 tablespoons honey maple syrup if vegan
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1/3 cup dark cocoa powder

Instructions
 

TART SHELL

  • In a food processor combine dark cocoa powder, oats and almond meal. Process for 1 minute until a fine powder forms.
  • Add dates, honey, coconut oil, salt and process until a smooth sticky mixture forms, about 2 minutes. 
  • Firmly press 2 tablespoon-size balls of dough into mini muffin cup tins. Form a well in the center of each with your thumb. Place in refrigerator until ready to use.

STRAWBERRY FILLING

  • Pour boiling water over raw cashews and allow to soak one hour. This will soften the cashews.
  • Drain soaked cashews and place them in a blender such as a VitaMix. Add strawberries, honey, coconut oil, and lemon juice. Process for 2 to 3 minutes until silky smooth. You might need to scrape the sides of the blender halfway through. 
  • Place strawberry filling in a piping bag and pipe into the chocolate crust. Refrigerate until ready to use again.

CHOCOLATE GLAZE

  • Combine chocolate glaze ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Drizzle chocolate glaze over filled strawberry tarts. Refrigerate for at least on hour before serving. 
  • Store in refrigerator up to a week or freeze for up to a month.
