Clean chocolate tart

Tuesday, 27 December 2016

After some time off I decided to start posting once again, the last month and so have been quite hectic for me with some depression sneaking through, I though getting myself active once again doing the things I enjoy might help the bad thoughts away.
One of the recipes that I love to add a twist to every time is this scrumptious chocolate tart, I'll share with you the very first one I tried a while back, it's very easy to make no special skills at all, no fancy tools whatsoever a fork or hand whisk will do all the mixing you need.

So for the crust, you'll need
3/4 cup almond flour
3 Tbs coconut flour
1 tsp coconut oil
2 Tbs cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 egg white
3 dates softened

The filling
- Coconut cream 160ml (keep in the fridge, when using open the can gently, don't shake)
- Dark chocolate 75g
- 1 cup frozen or fresh berries

- Mix all crust ingredients together
- Add into small tart pans, press gently
- Bake for 10-12 mins on medium/low heat
- Cool for about 30mins
- Add the filling, my melting the chocolate and scooping only the cream, don't use the water
- Top up with fruit
- Keep in fridge

- If you have some leftover of the filling, keep it refrigerated so the cream and chocolate won't split, add to any dessert as desired, it's lovely smooth and taste delicious!
- You can use the leftover coconut water in the can by adding it to soups or cooking rice

I hope you can remember us

This is nothing like my usual posts nor a thing I like to talk too much about, not because I stopped caring it's more of myself getting used to the same inhumane events happening in my own country and all over our world today and nothing in my power to change.  Feeling unwell myself means lots of news for me to watch, this morning was terribly sad, while safe at my home with Joud playing around, all that made me feel very grateful of what I have yet very bitter and hopeless! In a far away place from here, in a city called Aleppo in Syria, a genocide is being broadcasted live, civilians and activists pleading, posting their goodbyes with their touching words in their possibly very last days or hours to live, Abdulkafi Alhamdo said "I hope you can remember us"

How evil can humans be? field hospitals targeted, doctors executed, how cowardly can someone kill a child or yet alone an innocent soul at all... I have nothing in my hands just to pray for a country that has been destroyed, over the past six years millions have been evacuated and forced into a death trip on a rubber boat.  The once famous for its culture and beauty Aleppo is now destroyed!

Coming from an unstable country myself and living and witnessing the Libyan war in 2011,  that forced me to live all the war's outcomes and tragic events, while trying to live with the marks its left in my life and still doing, all this makes me know a thing or two about it.  As for Libya bad events had never ever stopped, I sometimes want to close my eyes and find it settled and healed up, I cry sometimes and feel the pain of Libyans in my guts I get depressed and sometimes smile when I see Libyans getting through and succeeding in any field in life, it lifts me up like nothing else.  For  Libyans, that is civilians that have no interest in power I mean, words such as killing, bombing, militias, kidnap, armed robberies, no money, complete electricity blackouts, lack of food, poor health care and so much more are all too familiar words in the daily life of people living there.  Two major cities Benghazi and Sirt in Libya have been in constant battle till a short time ago, it's disheartening to see all those young lives lost in a battle that will never be won, for personal greed and ambition! 

I hope events like these force some fellow humans out of their bubbles, and shed some light on what's happening around the world not only what's happening in their safe countries and lives, and for all the overly paranoids out there, that are against letting Syrian refugees enter their countries, turning away disabled elderly, vulnerable pregnant women or a malnourished child while feeding your's a pie, ask yourself when lastly did you hear or see your humanity speak up or act?.  Regardless of your personal political or religious views, hold a minute of consideration for the children killed in Aleppo when you tuck your little one to bed tonight.  

Please keep all troubled countries in your prayers!
