Raw chocolate mousse tarts | vegan & gluten free

I’m back with another healthy dessert recipe!

Packed with protein, healthy fats, and potassium, these raw chocolate mousse tarts are the perfect guilt-free indulgence. Best of all, they taste amazing and their texture is extremely addictive.

These days, I’ve been sticking to a very casual workout routine which has helped me handle stress a whole lot better while giving me a ton of energy. I am not pushing myself beyond my limits. Instead, I am listening to my body and giving it what it needs in the process. And what it needs right now is some chocolate!

These raw chocolate tarts are the perfect size to pop in your mouth right before or after your workout. I like that you don’t need to bake them and they’re super simple to create.

I topped mine with raw cacao nibs since I had a bag just laying around. I never know how to use the nibs so I usually just top my raw desserts with them. They have a bitter chocolate flavor and have a crunch to them.

My toddler who normally despises avocados had no problem devouring these. It’s my secret way to sneak it in to his diet. After all, avocados are rich in vitamins and minerals including vitamin K, folate, and magnesium. Sweetening them up and adding chocolate makes them even better. The raw vanilla bean paste I used comes form Madagascar vanilla bean pods. I highly recommend getting these as they are affordable and non-GMO:

These would be great to serve at a party for vegans and non-vegans alike and It’s a sure fire way to impress all your health-nut friends! I also love that they’re fun to make and eat. Enjoy!
