1 1/2 cups walnuts
2/3 cup dates
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1-2 teaspoons pure vanilla or water
1/3 cup raw cacao powder (optional)

Grind the walnuts into a flour in a food processor.
Add the dates and cacao. Continue grinding until broken down.
Add the coconut and vanilla. Grind again to incorporate.
Add another 1/2 – 1 teaspoon water if needed to keep the mixture held together when pressed in your hand.
Press into the bottom of a mini tart or cupcake pan. Place in the fridge or freezer to set.

3 tablespoons coconut oil (warmed to a liquid)
1 tablespoon canned coconut milk
2 tablespoons raw agave
1/3 cup raw cacao powder

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl using a whisk. The filling should turn out thick and smooth. Pour all of the filling into the cooled tart crust or split in two cupcakes and spread filling evenly. Place in the fridge or freezer to set.
