First, prepare the crust. Combine oats, dates, and unsweetened cocoa powder in a food processor and process until completely combined and slightly crumbly.
Dust mini tart pans with some cocoa powder and press the oat mixture. Set aside.
For the filling, combine the remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until completely smooth. Pour the mixture over the prepared crusts and refrigerate for about an hour before serving.
Optionally, top with some fresh fruit or shredded coconut before serving.
Mini tarts are an excellent way to combine all your favorite ingredients into a lovely and nutritious snack you can enjoy all day long.
These no-bake mini banana tarts are extremely easy to prepare – you simply have to combine a couple of ingredients in a food processor and you're good to go without having to bake or spend a lot of time on preparing them.
Dates and bananas are sweet enough so you probably won't need any additional sweeteners. However, you can add a teaspoon of agave nectar, maple syrup, coconut or cane sugar. That's completely up to you.
When it comes to crust, you can replace (or even combine) oats with minced nuts like almonds or hazelnuts, add a tablespoon of shredded coconut for a lovely coconutty flavor, or use some other grains you prefer.
There are plenty of options to choose from as long as you have a couple of sticky dates to hold things together.
Finally, firmly press the crust into pans and pour in the filling, refrigerate tarts for a while to thicken the filling, and enjoy!

Topping these healthy mini tarts with some seasonal fruit, minced nuts, or shredded coconut will add some valuable nutrients and make them look even more beautiful. I have decided to go with redcurrants which are an excellent source of vitamins (especially vitamin C), but, naturally, anything else you have on hand will do the job perfectly. Have fun!
