Preheat the oven to 350˚. Pulse oats, whole wheat flour and almonds until coarsely ground. Add coconut oil, agave, cocoa and salt, pulse until mixture looks like wet sand.
Firmly press into bottom and up the sides of tart tins Bake until crust is golden brown and smells toasty, 20–25 minutes. Transfer tarts to a wire rack and let them cool.
Matcha cream filling
Bring the coconut cream to a simmer on the stove top, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat immediately and pour over the cocoa butter. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes. Whisk until completely smooth.
Process cashew nuts in a food processor until fine mince. Add the cream mixture and continue to process until smooth.
Pour the filling mixture into a cooled tart shell and refrigerate for 2 hours (or preferably overnight).
To serve, dust some matcha powder on top and garnish with fresh berries. Enjoy!
I’m a true fan of matcha green tea powder! And not only because it’s packed with antioxidants and some other valuable nutrients, but it tastes absolutely divinely in so many different recipes.
This particular combination is somewhat different than your usual tart recipes – it’s based on healthy and vegan-friendly ingredients without highly processed foods we’re all unfortunately used to.
Both, the crust and the filling are sweetened with pure maple syrup with an exotic coconut twist that makes this dessert truly special. And the best part? You really don’t need to feel guilty having two or even three slices of this fantastic cream tart – it’s healthy, delicious, and based on the ingredients that won’t jeopardize your weight goals. That’s exactly what a dessert should look like, don’t you think?
The crust of this lovely matcha cream tart is based on good old-fashioned rolled oats, some almonds, whole wheat flour, and cocoa powder for a bit of chocolaty taste. Add some coconut oil and maple syrup to hold things together and you’re good to go. However, if you’re not a huge fan of coconut (it does taste specific, I agree), you can replace it with almond butter, peanut butter, or even a regular butter.
When it comes to filling, a combination of cashews, cocoa butter, coconut cream, and maple syrup with a gentle touch of matcha green tea powder will result in a perfectly smooth and wonderfully creamy filling everybody will love!
Have fun baking and enjoy!
