Delicious Decadent Mini VEGAN chocolate tarts!! 

You will need a mini muffin pan and food processor.

Coat each mini muffin slot with a little coconut oil.

Recipe:

There are 2 layers to this treat.

First layer:

In a food processor combine the following:

3/4 cups raw almonds 

1/4 cup dry unsweetened coconut (flakes or shredded)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp cinnamon

2 generous Tbls almond butter

3 Tbls maple syrup

1/4 cup rolled oats

1 Tbls coconut oil

Pinch sea salt

Mix on low for around 10-15 seconds (stop to scoop the sides if needed).  Consistency should be sticky and a bit clumpy.  This is the base “crust” of the tart.

Scoop a small Tbls into each mini muffin hole.  Press mixture down firmly and even.

Pop in freezer for 15 minutes

Second layer:

Combine 6 Tbls coconut oil, 6 Tbls maple syrup, 5 rounded Tbls Cocoa Powder, pinch sea salt.

Stir mixture a bit, pop in microwave for 1 minute.  Stir mixture until smooth and well mixed.  

Add 1 small Tbls on top of the crust.

Sprinkle slivered almonds on top.  Freeze for 45 minutes.  Let tarts sit out for 5 minutes to make it easier to pop out.
