Servings 8


Base Crust

  • 1 cup almond flour (ground almonds)
  • 1/2 cup dates, soaked at least 30 minutes and drained
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Peppermint Filling

  • 1 13.5 oz can coconut cream, full fat (solid part only) *see note below
  • 1 cup chocolate chips/chunks
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract

Optional Topping

  • 1/4 cup crushed peppermint candy canes


  • Base Crust
  • Note: Place the can of coconut cream or milk in the fridge or freezer for at least 1-2 hours before making these tarts to allow coconut cream to separate.
    Line a muffin tin with 8 muffin liners or use a silicon muffin pan.
    Add all base crust ingredients to a food processor and process until mixture is sticky and starts to come together as a dough. You should be able to press it between your fingers and it will hold together.
    Taking 2 tablespoons at a time, press evenly into the bottom of each muffin cup. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling.

Peppermint Filling

  • Open chilled can and scoop out the coconut cream that has separated and set hard on the top. Save the remaining coconut water to use in a smoothie, drink, or discard.
    In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals stirring between each burst until melted and smooth.
    Cool the chocolate to just above room temperature before whisking in coconut cream and peppermint extract. Pour filling over crust in muffin cups until they are about 3/4 full.
    (Optional): Sprinkle over crushed peppermint candy canes.
    Transfer tarts to the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Store tarts in an airtight container in the freezer.
