Fruit Tarts

Welcome to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, and Cassandra from Powered By Bling, to create awesome healthy recipes each week! Today’s theme = Pie Makeovers! Make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well!

I’m going to digress a tinytiny bit and talk about my peds rotation (I’m rounding at the hospital for the first time today!)–what are the strangest most unique names you’ve ever heard of? Do you ever think that there are some names that parents just really shouldn’t name their kids?

I just wanted to let you know that there’s a little girl out there running around with the name, “Satin Sheets.” Yes, that’s her full name.

My preceptor’s friend had to talk a mother out of naming her child Chlamydia. (No, I’m really not kidding.) She thought it sounded pretty. He also knows of two girls with the name “Candida” (“Candy” for short).

…He’s also met a “La-a.” (How do you think that’s pronounced? Tell me in the comments!)

What’s the most unique name you’ve ever come across?

I think I really lucked out with the name, “Farrah.” I’m super glad that my dad was the one who named me, since my mom was going to name me Mary, Melody, or Joy, and I can’t see myself as any of those names.

Tangents aside…to me, tarts are pretty much the same thing as pies. (If this theme seems random, it’s because today’s apparently National Pie Day! :O ) They both have some kind of crust/pastry and fruit! :O If you think this is sacrilegious…my apologies,Β but you’re still just gettin’ a recipe for fruit tarts today from me! It’s gluten-free, raw,Β andΒ no-bake!

For the record, this recipe makes 12 tarts, but I was too lazy to make the rest of them prettier, as it’s currently past midnight, and I have didactics in 6.5 hours. :O Feel free to top it with whatever fresh fruit (the more colorful the better! πŸ˜› ) + fixings you like! I only have apples and bananas at home right now, so that’s what I worked with!

Fruit Tarts


Fruit Tart


  • 1/4 cup dates
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • sprinkle of sea salt


  • 1-2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp hemp hearts


  • Β Big Slice Apples packet (optional, but I used Boysenberry Chocolate!)
  • Fresh fruit, diced/sliced (if you have any)!


  1. (Crust) Put all ingredients into a food processor or blender and pulse until they’re in small pieces. Be sure not to over-process! Press into baking cups and put in fridge or freezer.
  2. (Filling) Mash bananas with a fork and add chia seeds + hemp hearts.
  3. After 1-2 hours, take the crust out of the fridge and spread the banana mixture over it.
  4. Top with fresh fruit/toppings of your choice and enjoy!

      No problem! It made me especially happy that it helped me use up stuff in my pantry/kitchen! :D!

      Hope you have a great weekend! :]

  2. Betsy

    Those look great!

    1. Farrah

      Thank you! :]

  3. susie @suzlyfe

    Oh Ladasha. Your parents are silly.
    Glad that you are finding more great uses for the big slice appl

    1. Farrah

      Hahaha, I’m glad you got the “Ladasha.” He went in and called her “La’a” and the parents were very quick to correct him.

      And yes indeed! πŸ˜€ I love all the different flavors they have!

  4. Alli

    Your fruit tart is beautiful! I’ve never seen this before, but would love to try it.

      Thank you! πŸ˜€ I procrastinated rather late for this recipe, but thankfully, it turned out okay!

  5. jess meddows

    Oh, Farrah, I laughed so hard! But all those poor little girls. Those poor parents who don’t know better. Half of me wants to laugh, half of me is worried for their personal safety. hahaha.

    And these fruit tarts look delicious. I need to go find me some shredded coconut. I love the stuff but so rarely use it.

    1. Farrah

      I FEEL SO BAD FOR THEM. :'( I laughed a very sad, defeated laugh, haha. :[

      It’s weird–I love coconut and have a ginormous bag of shredded coconut, but I rarely seem to make anything with it, so I figured I should change that! πŸ˜›

  6. Annmarie

    Haha, great minds really do think like! πŸ˜‰ Ps. I LOVE your name- I was considering naming my daughter Farrah at one point bc of my Middle Eastern heritage. Gorgeous name for a a gorgeous girl πŸ˜€

      Aww, thank you! :]! That’s really cool! πŸ˜€ I’ve never met another Farrah in real life!

  8. Melanie @ Nutritious Eats

    Haha, love your tangent. Is is supposed to be pronounced like Leia? Princess Leia??

    1. Farrah

      hahaha, sadly not. :[ My preceptor thought it was “La’a,” but…it’s “Ladasha.”

  9. Cassandra @PoweredByBling

    Such an easy recipe and so healthy. Never thought about a raw version of this treat. I’m going to have to make these for Mini Me. She will love these!

    1. Farrah

      Yay! I hope so! πŸ˜€ I’m really glad the envisioned recipe in my head ended up being this simple! I made this yesterday at around midnight, hahaha. Hooray for busy lives!

      I hope you feel better soon! <3

  10. Elsie @ Sharing Healthiness

    Everything that has dates in it is a win for me!! So delicious!! Perhaps La-a is pronunced “Eleiah”, like LA and another A. πŸ™‚ I once heard the name “Angste” which was a combination of HER parents names Angela and Steve….

    1. Farrah

      :D! Yes indeed! I love using it in recipes for natural sweetness!

      “La-a” to that particular set of parents is pronounced…”Ladasha.” I have no words. :[

      Ohhh no…I don’t think they thought that through very well. ._. That reminds me of another little kid I met whose name was Davrick…except it was because the mom couldn’t remember if his dad was named Dave or Rick. Why, humanity, why!? ._.

    love this idea! fruit is my favorite πŸ™‚

    If I could eat fruit, you better believe I would have this for both a morning and afternoon snack! πŸ™‚

      Aww, I’m sorry that you can’t! :[ I *cough* had this for breakfast + lunch-dessert today. 😑

  15. Melanie

    Those look great! Thanks for the recipe!
    As for those names…haha! Is the La-a pronounced Ladasha? Creative spelling for sure! When I worked at WIC I would see creative names, but now I can’t think of what any of them were! Names are fun πŸ™‚
    Melanie recently posted…Weekly Wrap Up Jan 19-23My Profile

    1. Farrah

      Yes indeed! πŸ˜› I’d heard of that before, but was shocked that he actually met one. (He thought the name was just an urban legend, haha.)

      It’s definitely interesting to see what people come up with! :O

  16. Julie @ Running in a Skirt

    These look so good!
    Your name is gorgeous! Your Dad did good!

  19. Esther

    They look awesome!! And super healthy!!

    Wow, people these days really don’t think about names for their kids! I am all for unique names, but sometimes they go a little too far! Kids get teased for so much these days, at least give them a name that they won’t be teased for!
    Hope you got some rest and enjoy your peds rounds! For YEARS I wanted to be a pediatrician….but I faint at the sight of needles, so I don’t think that would have gone well.

    1. Farrah

      Thank you! πŸ˜€

      I agree, haha. There’s a biggg difference between unique vs. making your child miserable. (Chlamydia is so not a playground-friendly name. :[ ) sigh!

      Peds has been fun so far (it’s kinda awesome getting to watch Frozen and Tangled all day long, hahaha). I’m the way you are around needles, but more so in the realms of childbirth or anything to do with it (I don’t think I’ll pass out now, but still), so I am completely dreading my OB/GYN rotation. 😑

  20. Cassie

    Love that the filling is mashed bananas… so creative! I would have never thought of that!

      Thank you! πŸ˜€ I was forced to get a little creative because I didn’t have much else sitting around in my kitchen, hehehe. I’m glad it turned out well! πŸ˜›

  21. Katie

    Wow. Those look absolutely delicious! I love the creativity that went into the recipe, too!

    1. Farrah

      Thank you! They were fun to make! :]

  22. Kati Rose

    I sat here shaking my head. I cannot believe some people would actually have to be argued out of naming their child chlamydia. I’m all for uniqueness, but c’mon people sometimes too far is too far. They will never be taken serious in life. That being said this recipe sounds delicious! I may have to try it out!
    Kati Rose recently posted…Eternally Ducked (I Don’t Know How to Flirt)My Profile

    1. Farrah

      Sigh, I agree. :[ Apparently, she thought the name was pretty? (I’d like to think that she honestly didn’t know it was a disease, because if she did, I’m just gonna go…cry in a corner…)

      Thank you! :] Food does help to restore my faith in humanity, hahaha. πŸ˜›

  23. Tricia @ A Couple of Dashes

    This looks delicious! I’ve never made anything like this before, so I’m interested to try it. It would be a good breakfast for week days!

    1. Farrah

      Thank you! It’s great if you don’t mind that it’s cold! Although I think it’d taste pretty awesome if you warm up the crust and then add the rest!

  24. Gloria

    These look great! Also love that they are gluten-free – one of my coworkers will LOVE these.
