Good Morning friends, I hope this finds you all well. We are all well here. If you are around on my Facebook page you would see that I have taken a little time of work for some mental health time out. I am spending these days wisely, reading, relaxing, walking and having down time with my family. I am also taking the time to really get to know ‘Mabel’ my gorgeous Belling Oven, my happy place. I created these tarts recently and I am super excited to share the recipe with you. I hope you love them as much as we did. Let me know!
1 cup buckwheat flour
¾ cup rice flour
¼ cup rapadura
good pinch salt
4 tblspns peanut butter
¾ cup water
2 cups rice milk
2 tblspns cacao
1 tspn vanilla essence
5 tblspns tapioca flour
8 medjool dates – seeds removed
½ cup macadamias
Preheat oven to 180c (or 160 fan forced)
Lightly oil 6 mini tart tins and set aside (see notes below).
In a large bowl mix both flours, rapadura and salt.
Add peanut butter and mix well.
Gradually add the water, mixing well until a soft dough is formed.
Roll out pastry onto a lightly floured surface (rice flour) until the dough is 5mm thick.
Using a butter knife, cut out a round and place into the tart tins then remove excess pastry from the sides.
Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes then set aside.
Meanwhile place the remaining ingredients into a food processor and blitz on high or until ingredients are broken down.
Pour the chocolate mixture into the pre-cooked bases and bake for 20 minutes (or until set when you gently touch the top)
Allow to cool at room temperature before enjoying or store in the fridge for 2-3 days.
To serve: drizzle with melted chocolate on top or fresh fruit and cream if your intolerances allow it.
* The pastry can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for up to 1 week in an airtight container, until ready to use.
* You can make one large tart with this mixture also. You will need to increase the cooking time to 30-35 minutes, depending on your oven.
* You can swap the rice flour and rice milk to flour and milk of your choice
* You can swap the rapadura for any dry sweetener of your choice
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
