  • Crust:
  • ¾ cup almonds, hydrated 30 minutes
  • ½ cup dates, hydrated 15 minutes
  • 1 Tbsp honey – or any other sweetener you want
  • Chocolate cream:
  • 4 ripe bananas, sliced
  • 2 Tbsps carob powder
  • 2 Tbsps honey, or any other sweetener you want
  • 100g dark chocolate 85% cocoa
  • 2 Tbsps psyllium husks

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp rum extract
  • 1 Tbsps cardamom seeds

Instructions
  1. For the pears:
  2. Peel the pears. Add all ingredients in the list above [Pears section] in a medium pot. Poach the pears for 25 minutes.
  3. For the crust:
  4. Add almonds, dates ad honey in your food processor. Blend well until they form a sticky paste.
  5. Cover your tart form with a plastic wrap. This way you’ll remove the tart from the form a lot easier! Add the paste and spread it evenly in the tart form.
  6. For the chocolate cream:
  7. Add bananas, honey, psyllium husks and carob powder in the blender. Blend until smooth.
  8. Melt the chocolate. I used the steamer.
  9. Add melted chocolate in the blender over the banana cream and blend well.
  10. Pour the cream in the tart form.
  11. Add wine poached pears and garnish with cinnamon and chocolate flakes.
