Raw Banana Chocolate Tarts.

These Raw Banana Chocolate Tarts make an awesome dessert or a luxurious breakfast because  it is a really tasty combination and the filling is so rich and smooth. This tart consists of a raw, nutty crust filled with a creamy avocado chocolate mousse and topped with banana slices, melted chocolate and toasted coconut flakes. All my favorite flavors in one.

These nutrient dense tarts are relatively easy to make, but you have to keep in mind that they need to be refrigerated for at least 2 hours to harden. You can also make mini versions of these tarts as a delicious in between snack. Just use a mini-muffin tin instead of tart pans.

  • 1 cup coarsely ground pecans
