Healthy vegan chocolate tartelettes

By on August 21, 2017

Do you have a sweet tooth and need your sugar fix after lunch? I got you covered! I have some sweetness and chocolate for you. Also, if you are vegetarian, vegan, it’s a keeper. Otherwise, it’s a keeper anyway! I know, I rock.
I’m talking tartelettes tasting like heaven and not staying on your hips!

It’s small, grab one!

In fact, this tartelettes will satisfy your craving and not give you bad conscience. Come on, admit it, don’t you feel bad after eating a bad chocolate bar just because? You can tell me, it’s me! Because, I do. After lunch, I generally look for that little something sweet that will mark the end of the meal. A nice expresso don’t always work, sometimes it calls for nice piece of chocolate to go with it.

Since we only live once and I own my curves, I indulge! However, I will try to make smart choices and Ta-da, now you have my healthy vegan chocolate tartelettes.

I used the lids of my mason jars as mold and it makes the perfect size for a treat! I got this idea from Dessert for 2, Christina is always so creative.

There is no sugar added and yet it is sweet. The figs and raisins are doing all the job. The combination of the nutty taste of the walnut and the chocolate will make ask for more!

On top of those pears, there is some white chocolate and then some shaved dark chocolate.

Some people just inspire you! May this chocolate cake do the same!

By on February 11, 2014

Bon Appét’Eat is still young and a fragile little project.  It was just a little over month that I decided to jump both feet in.

Having a cooking blog is a real lifestyle!  You cook/bake, and sometime re-cook and re-bake… to make sure you are putting a great recipe (Yesterday, I made a risotto, not a success…  I will have to try, try and try again before it comes her).  So, as a blogger, after preparing a dish or dessert, you photograph it over and over in different angles, then you enhance it on an editing software.  Then, you finally make it to the writing part, to share with your readers.  It is not for everybody but I really love it and enjoy every parts of it.
