Raspberry Nutella Tarts

I have said this before, but growing up with a German mother meant we ate a lot of Nutella.  I loved it as a child.  Now I know that store bought Nutella is very unhealthy.  So I have created my own Healthy Homemade Nutella.  I have used it in many dishes on this blog.  Now it is time for a Raspberry Nutella Tart.

We all need to enjoy a tart every once and a while.  I love them and they are perfect for summer.  There is no cooking involved!  These are completely raw.  They are also vegan, grain free and gluten free!  If you feel compelled to cook the crust, you can.  You just don’t need to.  These are very easy to make even though they look kind of fancy.

Ingredients

Instructions

    For the crust
  1. In a food processor , grind up the almonds until they are a course consistency.
  2. Once they are ground, add in the dates and water until the dough comes together. If you are not using a high powered food processor , you might want to soak the dates for 5 minutes in water to soften them.
  3. Grease your tart pan or mini tart pan s and then press the dough into the pan and up the sides. The dough will be sticky and I find that working with wet hands helps.
  4. Once the dough is set into all the tarts, place them in the fridge to firm up. About 30 minutes.
  5. For the filling
  6. While the tarts are setting up, you can make the filling. In the food processor , grind up the hazelnuts into as fine of a powder you can get them.
  7. Once they are ground, add in the remaining ingredients. If the mixture seems too thick, you can always add a bit more milk.
  8. Once the crusts are set, spoon the filling into each one and top with the fruit.
  9. Enjoy!

Vegan Nutella Granola

I bought some hazelnuts the other day to make my No Bake Nutella Bites.  I had quite a few left over, so I thought about making a Nutella granola.  Yes!  You can now have dessert for breakfast.  This granola is vegan, soy free, dairy free and contains no refined sugars!

This granola kind of reminded me of my Peanut Butter Cup Granola.  This would go perfect with my Homemade Hemp Milk.

Healthier Vegan Nutella Bites

Healthier Vegan Nutella Bites.  Omg.  These might be the most delicious little bitesI have ever made.  I know I said this once before after I made the No Bake Cookie Dough Bites, but these even out shine those!

 

Healthier Vegan Nutella Bites

 

My mom is German, so I grew up eating Nutella.  When I was little, I would grab the jar and run to my room to eat it.  Now I know that it isn’t very good for you.

Being vegan meant giving it up as well.  I missed it terribly so I had to come up with a vegan friendly version.  There are no funky ingredients in these.  They take only minutes to throw together.

That’s right.  You could be only minutes away from popping one of these delicious balls of goodness into your mouth. 🙂  Can it get any better?

Instructions

  1. If you are using raw hazelnuts, preheat oven to 375 and roast the nuts for about 7-10 minutes. If using roasted hazelnuts, skip this first step.
  2. In a food processor, grind the hazelnuts into a fine powder.
  3. Then add the dates, cocoa powder and milk and process until a dough forms.
  4. Roll the dough into balls and place in the fridge to set. Or, you can just eat them right out of the food processor.

Notes

I’m not gonna lie, I may have had a few tastes. I got about 15-17 balls out of this batch. Enjoy!
