Black Forest Cookie Tarts topped with Greek Yogurt

These tarts were an absolutely delight. If you love chocolate with fruit, this is your kind of dessert! The cookie crust is what makes it extra fun. They are completely grain-free and are even topped with healthy greek yogurt instead of whipped cream!

pretty please! with a cherry on top?

Crust:
1 cup almonds, ground
2 tbsp cocoa
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp honey
Salt

Filling:
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (melted)
1 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp honey (or more to taste)

Fresh cherries, halved
Greek yogurt (add honey to sweeten)

Combine ingredients for crust, spoon into muffin tin, pat around the sides until tart/cookie cup is formed, bake 350F for 8-10 minutes.

Mix filling ingredients, pour into cooled cookie tart crusts, drop 2 cherry halves into filling. Refrigerate until filling set (a few hours). Once set, spoon greek yogurt over tarts and top with cherries and cocoa powder!

Makes 6 sweet little tarts!

The yogurt looks exactly like whipped cream!


You could make so many different kinds of tarts with this recipe! Try substituting the cherries for bananas or making a chocolate chip cookies crust by subbing flour for the cocoa powder.

  1. How delicious! The crust alone sounds gorgeous. I can't get fresh cherries at the moment sadly but I'm sure another fruit would be great.
    There's something missing from the listed ingredients under "filling". I'm guessing 1 Tbsp of sweetener?
