Chocolate Cashew Tarts

Chocolate Cashew Tarts
serves 2 ~ $1.8 per serving



  • 1/2 cup almonds (or cashews) ($1.00)
  • 1/2 cup raisins ($.50)


  • 1/2 cup cashews ($1.00)
  • 1/4 cup water for blending
  • 3 heaping tablespoons cocoa powder (or carob powder) ($.60)
  • 3 tablespoons agave ($.60)
  • pinch salt


  • In a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the almonds and raisins until the mixture begins to stock together. 
  • Press the mix into the bottom and sides of two five inch tart pans, or plastic wrap lined cupcake tins, to form the crust.
  • In a small blender, puree the water and almonds until very smooth. 
  • Add the remaining ingredients and puree until smooth.
  • Divide between the two crusts and fill to the top.
  • Add some chopped almonds as a topping, and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving, to allow the tarts to cool and firm.

    Malin … I've personally confirmed that the filling can, indeed, be eaten with a spoon 🙂

    Chocolate + Cashews = Bliss. Can't wait to try this recipe!

  6. Emma says:

    YUM!! Easy, peasy too! Aren't raw desserts just the best?!

  7. Lisa Viger says:

    Jessica, with the recipe above I made the two tarts in cupcake tins. They're big tarts (as you can see by the nutritional info!), and I filled them pretty full. If you were to double the recipe, you would probably be able to get 5-6 cupcake tin sized tarts from it, depending on how full you made them. Let me know how they turn out!

    You had me at Cashew…..anything with cashew cream looks good to me, yummy!!

  9. Jessica says:

    About how many muffin tin sized tarts would this make? Trying to gage if I'd need to double the recipe before I start making it. 🙂
    (Maharishi- there are cashews in the filling AND optionally in the crust…)

    Oh my gosh, I'm so in! I love, love, love raw vegan desserts that aren't reliant on coconut oil 🙂

    Chocolate AND cashews. Can it get any better? Yum!

  12. Maharishi says:

    They look great but I think you need to change the title or the method as there are no cashews in your recipe.

  13. Leslie R. says:

    These look just unbelievably yummy!

  14. Omg! I love chocolate & cashews together! Your photos are gorgeous <3
