Servings: Makes 12 tarts
1 cup pecans
½ cup cashews
½ cup Medjool dates, pitted
½ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 ½ Tbsp honey
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp lemon zest
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
Half-pint container (or 1 cup) fresh blueberries
In food processor, blend together the crust ingredients until crumbly.
Line each cup of muffin pan with a parchment paper liner. Press crumb mixture firmly into bottom of each liner and freeze for at least 1 hour (preferably overnight, the firmer the better as crust gets soft quickly!).
While crust is setting in freezer, combine the filling ingredients in medium-sized bowl. Cover & place in fridge until ready to use.
Remove muffin pan from freezer. Remove each crust gently by pulling up on liners and placing onto a plate. Scoop a spoonful of yogurt filling into each cup. Top with fresh blueberries. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
