Preheat 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 coconut cream to a simmer on the stove top, stirring occasionally. Just as soon as you see a simmer, remove from heat and poor over cocoa butter let sit for 1-2 minutes. Whisk till smooth.
Process cashew nuts in a food processor until smooth. Add it cream mixture and pulse to combine.
Pour filling mixture into cooled tart shell (pic 004) and allow to set overnight or 2 hours in fridge. To serve, dust some matcha powder on top and garnish with fresh berries. Enjoy!
We absolutely love matcha green tea. Not only it is healthy and packed with antioxidants it also tastes so great, especially in desserts.
This matcha cream tart is made with healthier ingredients. It’s vegan and refined sugar-free, as both the filling and the crust are sweetened with maple syrup. It’s a healthy dessert yet very delicious. You definitely don’t have to feel terrible about having 2 slices, or even more. And that’s how food should be: delicious, nourishing, and enjoyable.
Alright, so first up, let’s talk about the crust. It’s made with rolled oats, almonds, whole wheat flour, cocoa powder and a bit of coconut oil and maple syrup to help the mixture hold together.
The filling is made of cashews, cocoa butter, coconut cream, maple syrup and matcha powder resulting in a velvety, smooth and creamy matcha goodness!
As you can see, the ingredients are fairly healthy, yet no one would notice it was “healthy”. You totally can’t tell.
“If you’re not a vegan, you could substitute coconut cream, coconut oil, maple syrup with any other ingredients that you have on hand. Like you could substitute with heavy cream, butter, or honey. You would still have the same result.”
We hope you enjoy this and have fun baking!
