Pecan & Date Tarts

Pecan and Date Tarts

~ Healthy Recipe ~

If you have a sweet tooth, and you like dates and pecans, then I guarantee this recipe won’t disappoint.  It’s easy to make, with minimal ingredients, and although it’s a treat, it’s still healthy too.

The majority of sweetness comes from the dates which is also balanced by their fibre and the healthy fats in the pecans and almonds.

Fun Fact - Pecans contain fibre, antioxidants, protein and more than 19 vitamins and minerals!

You’ll notice below that it can also be made into a slice.  This is another option, although I recommend the tarts as the caramel is quite gooey! (and helps with portion control too).
