Raw Chocolate Tarts Recipe

Cake for breakfast? If you’re looking to indulge, the next best thing could be raw chocolate tarts.

These versatile nibblers can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast following your workout, a midday snack, or more conventionally—dessert. Ingredients offer benefits in the form of chia seeds (calcium, protein, fiber), bananas and avocados (potassium), berries (antioxidants), and of course, cacao (energy booster and mood enhancer).
