Easy Vegan Chocolate and Almond Tarts

I’m having a lovely weekend relaxing after Budapest last weekend and a crazy busy week at work again. The problem is that even though I’m able to relax much more then I used to I still feel a little guilty doing nothing but relaxing. So I’ve been relaxing/researching/cooking/exercising which is sort of perfect for me!
And I decided to make a little weekend treat from Andy and I (more for Andy as he’s the dessert daemon!). Another version of my amazing vegan tarts, this time choc and almond with a brazil nut base.

I’ve said before but these tarts are so good! The creamy filling combines perfectly with the nutty cacao base. They are packed with good fats, protein from the tofu and nuts, and with no refined sugar these guys are just too delicious. And they can be whipped up the minutes. Happy days!

Raw choc and almond tart

I love this double chocolately delight but you could add in a couple of tbsp of orange juice to the filling to make a choc orange tart. Mmm love the sound of that.

    These tarts look so good, and absolutely beautiful! I’m a little confused about which ingredients are for the base, and which are for the filling. Would you mind explaining that for me please? Thanks! ????
