Salted Chocolate Dipped Banana Almond Pops with Malted Coconut Honey.
So umm, look what I made!?!?
I made us dessert that’s basically healthy food.
Like whoaa, can I get a pat on the back or something, please???
Just kidding, but really, a healthy food dessert!! COOL!
Well healthy food to me at least, I know that everyone has their own terms when it comes to “healthy” food, BUT these tarts are so my kind of health food…hello no added sugar, no butter and not even any gluten.
See, these deserve a WHOA. And I promise, promise, promise they are soo goood. Even my chocoholic, butter loving and MAJOR carb lovin mom totally approved of these.
So you see, they have to be good.
With the warm weather finally arriving, I figured maybe a figure friendly dessert might be a good idea. I mean, if you ask me, summer is totally the time for fun and over the top desserts (hello ice cream sundaes, grilled doughnuts, milkshakes and Dairy Queen as much as possible), but that’s only because I think of summer as “No rules and ALL FUN”. Maybe this is because I still dream of summertime like I am a kid in high school, and maybe with age I will grow out of this thinking…
But I sure hope not, because thinking this way is so much fun!
I willingly admit that I wish I could stay my age for all eternity. I have learned that time literally goes by in the blink of an eye, and guys, I’m really so not cool with that.
Where is the pause button on life?
Wouldn’t that be awesome.
So, what are your weekend plans??
I have some decorating things to do around the barn so I can finally give you guys a last update, but other than that, I have nothing planned, which I am thinking is a good thing cause weekends are for re-charging.
AND chocolate. Of course.
Which brings me back to these pretty little no-bake chocolate mocha fudge and coconut tarts. Why is it that mini food is 100% more fun?? And cute!!
These tarts are completely made from whole foods, coconut, cashews, dates, vanilla and coffee make up the crust and the filling is literally just roasted cashews, cacao or cocoa powder, dates, coffee and vanilla. So simple, but these really could not be any better. I think the roasted cashews are the secret here, well the cashews, the vanilla and the coffee… they have magical properties.
And since these are healthy AND mini, clearly that means eating two (OR MORE!) is totally A-OK.

And since it’s Friday, no guilt whatsoever. Yes, please!
I doubled the recipe and am left with a ton of extra filling! Can this be saved?
I am so so glad this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for giving it a try! I suppose you could save for another batch! Happy Sunday! xTieghan
These look very good! I would just like to warn you, though, that those flowers you are using for garnish are called larkspur and they are extremely poisonous- you probably shouldn’t put them on your food.
Hi there! So good to know! Thank you! I hope you love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan
This is by far the best healthy dessert recipe I found in years! It’s unbelievable, better than some dairy / sugar / gluten filled options on the market. Add a bit of peppermint extract to half of the batch and you will have amazing mint-chocolate bites of heaven. Thank you, Tieghan!
Thank you so much Auste!! I am really glad this turned out so well for you! xTieghan
I leave a response each time I like a post on a website or if I have something to valuable tto contribute to the discussion.
It is a result of the passion displazyed in the article
I looked at. Andd after this article No-Bake Chocolate Mocha Fudge and Coconut
Tarts | HBH. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought 😛 I actually do have a couple of questions for you if
you don’t mind. Is it simply me or do a few of
the remarks appear lije coming from brain dead people?
😛 And, if you are writing on additional sites, I’d like to
keep up wwith you. Could you list all of all your communal pages
like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
fine, dont answer. i went with hazelnut I dont regret it. 🙂
Sorry about that. I don’t know why, but your comment did not dare to apear before I wrote a very trolllish phrase.
anyway your recipte was clever and fantastic. my work collegues are amazed too.
All is good. Glad you and your work colleagues loved this one, thanks Lana!
Can I use hazelnuts or almonds instead of chashew? (they are difficult to obtain out here in scandinavia and raw much more expensive than other nuts. )
Which do you think would take/taste better? almond or hazelnut?
or should i go for walnuts?
Hey Lana, hazelnuts or almonds would both be great! Either would be delish, so it is whatever you prefer. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you! 🙂
These were delicious. I used coconut sugar and they turned out really well. Making again for sure!
WOO! So happy to hear these were amazing for you!! Thanks Ann!
Maybe I added too much cacao and not enough dates, but my recipe didn’t taste very good. Glad other people had success.
SUPER ready for another barn update, Tieghan! Can’t wait to see the progress you’ve made…
It’s coming later this summer. THANKS!
Hiya, I was just wondering if it’s possible to substitute cacoa nibs with something else? My supermarkets dont seem to have them! Thank you x
You can use chopped chocolate, no biggie! 🙂 Hope you love these!
I used mini chocolate chips in place of the cocoa nibs in mine when I made them and it turned out great.
