chocolate peanut butter mousse tarts …

You honestly cannot go wrong with the chocolate and peanut butter combination. IMO it’s the best food flavour combination of all time. With that in mind, these tarts don’t disappoint.They’re raw, vegan and gluten free – that covers everyone doesn’t it? ;)

The base is crunchy  and the filling is smooth – nice. Easy to make. Absolutely delish!

Ingredients
Base
1 cup pitted dates
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup buckwheat groats (you can use coconut or rolled oats)
2 tablespoons cacao powder

Mousse filling
1 cup cashew nuts
1 banana
1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
3 tablespoons cacao powder
1/3 cup coconut milk
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons coconut nectar or pure maple syrup

Method
Base
1) Soak the pitted dates in boiling water for 10 minutes to soften, discard water and add to your blender. Rinse your buckwheat groats under water. (I used wheat-free rolled oats.)

5. Top with cacao nibs. (I chose not to use any toppings.)
6. Place back into freezer to set.
7. Use a knife to gently work around each mould to remove from muffin tin. Enjoy while you can!

Note: I used 2 silicone trays so I made 24 mini tarts.
