Vegan Chocolate Mint Tarts

 

Ingredients 

Crust
  • 85 g gluten free rolled oats
  • 34 g hazelnut meal or almond meal
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
Filling

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 177°C. 
  2. Put oats and hazelnut meal into a food processor. Pulse until coarsely ground. Add coconut oil and maple syrup. Pulse until mixture looks like wet sand. 
  3. Firmly press mixture into bottom and up the sides of three prepared tart tins. 
  4. Bake until crust is golden brown and smells toasty, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let them cool. 
  5. To make the filling, put the cream in a small saucepan and gently heat until just below boiling. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until smooth. 
  6. Pour chocolate mixture into cooled tarts and refrigerate until set (at least two hours).
