100g raw cacao powder 

75g almond butter 

60g raw honey 

60g coconut sugar

1 First, make the top layer by popping all the ingredients in a medium pan and melting together over low heat. Make sure it doesn’t burn and it’ll turn into a glossy mixture. Set aside to cool. 

2 For the base, blend the oats in a food processor. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend again. 

3 Press the base mixture into a 12 by 8-inch rectangular tart pan, or a 10-inch round tart pan. 

4 For the second layer of the tart, spread almond butter over the base and leave it in the freezer for 30 minutes or until hardened. 

5 Lastly, pour the cacao mixture to create the top layer, and spread it out evenly. Garnish with slivered almonds or your preferred dried fruits and nuts. 

6 Store in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours before serving.
