Author Notes:

This dessert represents me perfectly because it's made of all organic and unprocessed ingredients and yet no one would ever know because it's so rich and decadent. The recipe only uses five ingredients and doesn't even need an oven to prepare. The filling is so incredibly thick and fudgy that it could suffice as a dessert all on its own.

I suggest using a coconut oil (such as expeller pressed) that doesn’t contain a strong coconut flavor. I found that these tarts taste better the longer they sit. I think it’s best to make them the day before serving. They keep in the refrigerator for one week.

Would it affect the texture of the crust or the filling if I used agave?

I made these yesterday and they taste as amazing as they look! I sprinkled some sea salt on a few before putting them in to chill. LOVE finding vegan/gluten free things that my non vegan/gluten free friends will also love!
