Mini Matcha Tarts, because sometimes, you just need desert. Or a snack. Or breakfast 😊.   But this sweet little treat is full of unrefined goodness! It’s full of healthy fats, thanks to the coconut, and all those dates pack a dose of fiber, calcium and phosphorus!

Matcha is one of those things that most people either love or hate (“ewww it tastes like grass!”). Well, this recipe helps alleviate the “grassiness” and will hopefully get you loving the creaminess of matcha so you can benefit from all it offers:

  • Antioxidants

  • Detoxification

  • Chlorophyll

  • Vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium

Plus, these are easy to make ahead so you have it for the week!
