If you read our recent roundup of Healthy Feeds to Follow, you’ll recognise Healthy Jon. Jon’s Instagram page has long been a source of inspiration for us here. Go on, take a peek, you’ll be tempted by all manner of healthy morsels. What’s more, you’ll see that it’s more than possible to get lean while enjoying a balanced existence. Yes, this health food and fitness blogger –and, not to mention, England Touch Rugby player– sure knows how to enjoy a good slither of sweet. And we’re all for that!
Today’s ‘sweet’ comes in tasty tartlet form, with Jon’s mineral-rich, dairy-free, gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Tartlets.
How to make yours (5 individual tartlets)…
Weigh out the nuts and cacao nibs, add to a food processor, and blend until relatively fine. Add the cacao powder, dates and salt, then blitz until it starts to come together.
Pour the mixture into your tartlet trays and spread evenly across the bottom and up the sides. Place in the fridge to firm up.
Measure out the chocolate and place into a glass bowl over some boiling water. Wait for it to melt, stirring occasionally.
When melted, pour in half a can of coconut milk (making sure that it hasn’t separated in the can first). Mix well, add the baobab powder and then pour into the tartlet bases.
Put them back in the fridge for at least an hour or two to set, then garnish and serve.
Our thanks to Healthy Jon for this beautiful recipe. Instagram aside, we’re big fans of Healthy Jon’s blog where you’ll find many tantalising treats…and talk of more main meals coming soon…though we’re still enjoying the sweet!
