  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 8 tartlets

These tartlets will steal the show at your next party or picnic. The filling for this healthy raw dessert is 100 percent fabulous fresh fruit, with bananas soaking up the sweet-tart juices of orange slices and berries, while the wholesome crusts are made simply with oats, nuts, date paste, and vanilla. Making them is easy. Just remember you need 30 minutes to chill the crusts before filling them.To make this recipe gluten-free, be sure to use certified gluten-free oats.

Tip: Mini cupcake liners, if you flatten them out, fit perfectly in the bottom of a 3-inch mini tart pan.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ⅓ cup walnuts
  • ⅓ cup raw cashews
  • ⅓ cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup Date Paste
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1⅓ cups fresh raspberries
  • 2 bananas, thinly sliced
  • 2 oranges, peeled and sectioned

Instructions

  1. Line eight 3-inch tart pans or ramekins with round pieces of parchment paper. (See tip in intro.) In a food processor or high-power blender combine oats, walnuts, cashews, and almonds. Process until mixture reaches a coarse texture. Transfer to a bowl. Add date paste and vanilla; stir until well combined. Place 3 tablespoons crust mixture in each tart pan; press mixture evenly in bottoms and up sides of pans. Chill crusts at least 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in clean food processor or high-power blender, pulse strawberries until consistency resembles chunky salsa. Transfer to a bowl; fold in raspberries.
  3. Remove crusts from pans. Line the bottoms of crusts with banana slices. Top with berry mixture and orange sections.

Right under the picture and title, the article mentions Date paste. Click on that and it will take you to what it is and even how you can make some yourself. Thanks for asking about this, for I too now know how to make Date paste.

Hope this helps. : )

Would almond meal work for the crust. I have a very old, underpowered, blender.

These crusts are super versatile and I imagine you could swap out a variety of fresh fruits. Blueberry and peach, anyone???

Yes, I will be using blueberries instead of Raspberries. I can’t have the little seeds that are in Raspberries. Peaches would be good on top too, or even sub for the bananas.
