Prep time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 1 tart
For the crust:
3 cups One Degree Organics Sprouted Cacao Os
2 Tbsp smooth almond butter
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp melted vegan buttery spread or coconut oil
2 tsp water
For the filling:
6 oz Kite Hill plain cream cheese style spread, at room temperature
1/3 cup seedless strawberry preserves
1/2 dark chocolate, melted and slightly cooled
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 lb fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
Melted dark chocolate to drizzle
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place cereal in a food processor fitted with an S blade and process until mostly broken down. Add remaining crust ingredients and pulse until evenly mixed.
Pour into a 14 x 5 tart pan and press into place evenly over the bottom and up the sides of the tart pan to form a crust. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until fragrant and firm. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, process the filling ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Chill until thickened, approximately 20 minutes.
Pour the filling into the cooled crust and use a spatula to fill the crust evenly. Top with strawberries and drizzle with chocolate. Best eaten the same day it is made.
