Cacao and Peanut Butter Tart

FullSizeRender

You or someone you know probably loves the dynamic duo of chocolate and peanut butter. Google the benefits of cacao and coconut oil. Make this Serotonin Cacao and Peanut Butter Tart for them or for yourself :)

Crust:

1 3/4 Cups of Peanuts

1 1/2 Cup of Figs

1-2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil

A Pinch or Two of Salt

Filling:

9 Tablespoons of Cacao

9 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil (Or 5 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil and 4 Tablespoons of Coconut Milk)

4 1/2  Tablespoons of Maple Syrup

3/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1. Combine all crust ingredients in the food processor and process just enough that they stick together. Maybe add a little more of any of the ingredients to get the consistency that you want. More coconut oil will make the filling texture more solid while more coconut milk will make it creamier. Press into a 7 – 9 inch taste pan.

2. Combine all of the filling ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Pour into crust.

3. Spell out some sweet message in peanuts.

4. Refrigerate until hard. Serve cool or cold.

The filling for this was adapted from this fabulous raw tarte recipe: http://www.ourpaleolife.com/recipe/chocolate-hazelnut-tart-paleo-vegan-raw/

You can also very easily make your own adaptations with different nuts in the crust and extracts in the filling. I have had great results with a hazelnut crust and orange extract in the filling :)
