Raw Brownie Berry Tart

DSCN1039The more I make raw desserts, the more amazed I am at how incredible they are.  Not only are they delicious and so much healthier, but they are so simple to make.  This tart is the perfect dessert for a summer day!  No need to turn on an oven!  In just a few simple steps you can have a creamy and wholesome dessert that tastes great!  I think it is my new favorite way to use the strawberries from my garden!



For the Brownies:

  • 3/4 c walnuts
  • 3/4 c pecans
  • 1 3/4 c pitted dates
  • 1/2 c cacoa powder
  • 3 T maple syrup
  • 1/4 t salt

  • 3 T unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 5 T maple syrup
  • 6 T melted coconut oil
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1 t vanilla

Place all ingredients but oil in a blender and blend to combine well.  Add oil and blend just to incorporate.

Pour all but 1/2c of the berry cream over brownie crust.

(The extra 1/2 c will be great in oatmeal or granola or as a dip for fruit.)
