This dessert is just that, pure indulgence! And yes, it does taste as good as it looks! On top of a delicious no-bake almond/pecan crust you get a smooth layer of creamy homemade Nutella topped with fresh strawberries. This dessert is also great when topped with fresh coconut whipping cream.

Strawberry Tart With Homemade Nutella
- 1/2 cup dates
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/3 cup pecans, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- remove pit from dates and process in a food processor until it forms a creamy paste
- in a bowl, mix the date paste, almond flour, chopped pecans and vanilla (I mixed ingredients by hand) and spread the mixture on the bottom of two 4.75-inch removable bottom tart pans
- make the hazelnut butter according to this recipe
- melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler over simmering water
- stir in the coconut milk or heavy cream, raw cacao powder, coconut oil, coconut palm sugar, vanilla and salt
- pour the nutella on top of the crust and top with fresh strawberries
Recipe makes two 4.75 inch tarts and you will have some leftover Nutella (can’t complain about that, right?). Cover and store in the refrigerator.
