Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (see notes)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Filling

  • ½ (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained (about ½ cup)
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (see notes)
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp. honey (see notes)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

Topping

  • 1 cup red raspberries

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 4 mini tart dishes with non-stick spray and set aside. (I used 4½ inch tart dishes)
  2. Stir together crust ingredients in a bowl until mixture is crumbly. Evenly spoon mixture into each tart dish and press down with your fingers, forming a crust.
  3. Bake crusts in the oven for 6 minutes. Let cool while you make the filling.
  4. Next, combine all of the filling ingredients in a food processor. Blend until mixture is smooth and free of lumps. This step may take 5-10 minutes. Stop to scrape the bowl several times in between blending.
  5. Spoon tart filling into each dish and smooth down with a spoon. Place tarts in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
  6. Remove tarts from fridge and top with fresh raspberries. Enjoy!

 

Notes:

  • Protein Powder Free option:  Substitute crust protein powder with an additional 3 tablespoons oat flour. Substitute filling protein powder with an additional 3 tablespoons cocoa powder and an additional 2 tablespoons honey.
  • Vegan option: use a chocolate vegan protein powder and maple syrup instead of honey.
