Plum and Cacao tarts 

Spring and Easter seem like the perfect time for fruit tarts. These gems are ideal little treats and are surprisingly refined sugar- free.

As much as I enjoy healthy tart bases that are made from ground nuts and dates, they can be deceptive in their macros. Although, they’re made of healthy and nutritious ingredients they have a high content of fats/calories. They can also be tricky and fiddly with their stickiness and blender mess, so I have been trying to look for alternative and came up with these cacao bases.

These are the perfect treats for Easter!

Recipe Notes

*Apple puree can be bought at the supermarket- I get mine from the kosher aisle in Tesco. You can also get it in some baby food aisles. Alternatively, simmer chopped apples in a little water and blend them to make your own.
