Matcha custard tarts are far more eccentric than the usual tart treat. With a vibrant green hue and chocolate crust, this dessert is not only tasty but is also healthier than most sweet indulgences.

This recipe for matcha custard tarts is found on the Veggies By Candlelight food blog. Listed within the category of vegan recipes, the dessert is free from any animal-based ingredients. While custard tarts are normally made with an egg custard, these tarts boast an unusual custard mix that is made with matcha, shredded coconut and raw hazelnuts along with maple syrup and agar flakes. While a breaded crust is traditionally sweeter, this dessert's gluten-free chocolate crust encases a distinct matcha filling.

In addition to their rich taste, matcha custard tarts also offer numerous health benefits such as vitamin C, zinc, magnesium, fiber and various antioxidants.
