The Best Coconut & Avocado Tart Recipe

Avocados in desserts have always been a weird thing to get my head around. But, now that I’ve familiarised myself with this, a coconut and avocado tart sounds just like what I need right now.

Using Whittaker’s 76 percent Nicaragua Chocolate, this is honestly one of the best tart recipes, ever.

  • ¾ Cup Roasted Almonds
  •  ¾ Cup Hazelnuts
  •  1 Cup Pitted Dates, Chopped
