Chocolate Cashew Tarts are Sweet!

Dates are super sweet and tasty. They actually grow like this on trees where they are allowed to dehydrate a bit so concentrate their healthy sugars.

The combination of nuts and dates makes a sweet and crunchy shell to hold the creamy chocolate filling.

Chocolate Cashew Tarts are Healthy!

Cashews are a tasty, delicious nut. They’re never totally raw because of the way they must be processed with heat to neutralize a caustic fluid in their shells. But they are still healthy and make a creamy filling in this dish.

Mixed with cacao powder and a touch of agave, the cashews blend up into a creamy filling that sets up nice and thick.

A bullet type blender works well here because it’s a relatively small-ish amount.

    Oh my … these might serve 2 in your house Lisa but I could definitely polish off both of these with a nice big cup of tea 🙂 Yum!

  2. Omg! I love chocolate & cashews together! Your photos are gorgeous <3

  3. Leslie R. says:

    These look just unbelievably yummy!

  4. Maharishi says:

    They look great but I think you need to change the title or the method as there are no cashews in your recipe.

  5. Veggie PAK says:

    Chocolate AND cashews. Can it get any better? Yum!

  6. Hannah says:

    Oh my gosh, I'm so in! I love, love, love raw vegan desserts that aren't reliant on coconut oil 🙂

  7. Jessica says:

    About how many muffin tin sized tarts would this make? Trying to gage if I'd need to double the recipe before I start making it. 🙂
    (Maharishi- there are cashews in the filling AND optionally in the crust…)

  8. Amanda says:

    You had me at Cashew…..anything with cashew cream looks good to me, yummy!!

  9. Jessica, with the recipe above I made the two tarts in cupcake tins. They're big tarts (as you can see by the nutritional info!), and I filled them pretty full. If you were to double the recipe, you would probably be able to get 5-6 cupcake tin sized tarts from it, depending on how full you made them. Let me know how they turn out!

  10. Emma says:

    YUM!! Easy, peasy too! Aren't raw desserts just the best?!

  11. Laura says:

    Chocolate + Cashews = Bliss. Can't wait to try this recipe!

  12. amazing result with so few ingredients!! the filling looks like something I could eat alone…with a spoon :DD great blog!

  13. Malin … I've personally confirmed that the filling can, indeed, be eaten with a spoon 🙂

  14. Shannon says:

    I have to make these now.
