3 Times a Day
Raw Raspberry Tartlets in Mason Jar Lids.
Makes 8 tartlets.
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
- 1 cup unsalted cashews
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup honey, pure maple syrup, or agave syrup
- 1 cup fresh raspberries
- ½ tsp. vanilla extract
- Pinch of salt
- Raspberries, to decorate before serving
Pour the cashews into a bowl, cover with water, and let them soak for at least 2 hours. In a food processor, combine the almonds and dates and process until the mixture is smooth enough to stay together when you press it between your fingers. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of 8 Mason jar lids to make small crusts. Set aside. Place all the filling ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Divide the mixture evenly among the crusts. Refrigerate for 2 hours to set. Serve.
